Obama's Unconstitutional War
- Dear Leader Obama, with the silent support of both Dems and Republicans, continues his unconstitutional war in Yemen. Our Constitution has no meaning to either party.
The Sheeple will believe just about any lie the government and its controlled media machine says to them. Since 2001 the Sheeple have been told about attack after attack that supposedly killed "high ranking terrorists" or key groups of fighters. It is all bullshit and lies.
Just in case no one noticed, the wars against Islamic terrorism have grown and grown in size. Now there is fighting all over: from Paris to half of Africa, the Middle East and into Afghanistan, Pakistan and the Philippines. Sorry, but the 1,400 year old war against Islam will not end with a few drone strikes.
(NY Times) - A C.I.A. drone strike in Yemen, the first since the resignation of President Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi, killed three suspected Qaeda fighters on Monday, American officials said, in a signal that the United States will continue its counterterrorism operations there despite the apparent takeover by Houthi fighters.
A missile launched from a drone struck a car in which the three men were riding in the central province of Marib, near the border with the province of Shabwa, which is believed to be a Qaeda stronghold. The C.I.A. operates a drone base in southern Saudi Arabia.
A senior American official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, declined to confirm the names of the victims. A C.I.A. spokesman declined to comment reports the New York Times.
There was no official reaction from the Houthis to the American strike, but one member of the movement, who is close to the leaders of the group, said, “We are against any American plane penetrating our airspace.”
He added: “But they killed militants who were probably planning an attack against us in Marib.” He did not want to be identified because he was not authorized to speak to the news media.
There are also rising fears that the current political standoff could lead to the partition of Yemen. Alarmed by the Houthis’ expansion, the southern separatist movement, Heraq, has been seizing territory, and some tribes are now more open to working with Al Qaeda, giving the group a larger pool from which to recruit.
“Al Qaeda in Yemen tried to strike a deal with tribes in many places before, but they failed,” said Jamal Benomar, the United Nations envoy to Yemen. “Now, some tribes are fighting along with them.”
