29 Dead in 8 Days as US Puts Yemen Drone War in Overdrive

Link to article

While everyone is distracted by the conventions, 29 people have been killed in Yemen by US drones operated by pilots halfway across the world.  Many of those killed are innocent - most are presumed to be innocent - although it's hard to tell since the Obama administration changed the definition of an "enemy combatant" to any male of military age.  At least two "civilians" were killed, then, since a woman and her 10-year-old daughter were victims of a weekend strike.

...and all of this in an undeclared (read: unconstitutional) war started by Bush and continued by the Peace President.
