The U.S. continues to massacre Yemeni civilians, both directly and through its tyrannical Saudi partners.
The New York Times yesterday reported that military officials had been planning and debating the raid for months under the Obama administration, but Obama officials decided to leave the choice to Trump. The new president personally authorized the attack last week. They claim that the "main target" of the raid "was computer materials inside the house that could contain clues about future terrorist plots." The paper cited a Yemeni official saying that "at least eight women and seven children, ages 3 to 13, had been killed in the raid," and that the attack also "severely damaged a school, a health facility and a mosque."
