If further investigations determine that the victims were all civilians, the attack could fuel an outburst of anger against the United States and the government in Sanaa among a Yemeni public already opposed to the U.S. drone strikes.

I'm not totally convinced the premise here is true.

From the article:

"Does anyone believe that, if not for our lethal drone program, the United States would've sent the Air Force or ground troops to fire on this wedding party?"

Exactly right... if we can't be certain of the target, we shouldn't be using these...

U.S. officials have acknowledged that four Americans have been killed with drones overseas, though they say only one was targeted purposely.

Also angering lawmakers was the White House's refusal to release Barron's documents. Members of both parties said the public was entitled to see the government's legal reasoning for the use of deadly force against its own citizens.

 

One of which was a 16 year old kid.

 

No trial.  Just BAM! You're dead, because the government finds you to be a threat.

 

And now the justice department official who gave Obama the justification he sought, is now on track to be a federal appeals judge.  Well isn't that CONVENIENT.

 

Paul noted that Obama said during his 2008 presidential campaign that he opposed Bush administration claims that presidents have the power to detain American citizens on charges of being enemy combatants.

"Now we are condoning killing Americans without a trial," said Paul. "Where, oh where, has candidate Obama gone?"

 

Of course I blame my party as well.  They gave Bush the power (Patriot Act) and only now want to complain about executive power over reach because there is a democrat in the WH.

Trump has killed the 16-year-old's 8-year-old sister.
