Impunity, Death, and Blowback: Report Exposes Illegal US Drone War in Yemen

Lauren McCauley, staff writer

A new investigation into the United States' killer drone campaign in Yemen, published Tuesday, finds that not only does that program fail to conform to protocol established by U.S. President Barack Obama, but that the strikes have in fact led to increased anti-American sentiment and greater regional destabilization.

Moqbel Abdullah Ali al-Jarraah, a villager from Silat al-Jarraah, where a January 23, 2013 U.S. airstrike hit a civilian house, told researchers: "I believe that America is testing its lethal inventions in our poor villages, because [it] cannot afford to do so at any place where human life has value. Here, we are without value."

Considering that the lives of Americans also have no value to Wall Street, will anyone be surprised when the military starts "testing" these weapons domestically?
