    Our bad.

    WASHINGTON — One day before President Obama is due to deliver a major speech on national security, his administration on Wednesday formally acknowledged that the United States had killed four American citizens in drone strikes in Yemen and Pakistan.

    In a letter to Congressional leaders obtained by The New York Times, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. disclosed that the administration had deliberately killed Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical Muslim cleric who was killed in a drone strike in September 2011 in Yemen.

    The American responsibility for Mr. Awlaki’s death has been widely reported, but the administration had until now refused to confirm or deny it.

    The letter also said that the United States had killed three other Americans: Samir Khan, who was killed in the same strike; Mr. Awlaki’s son Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, who was also killed in Yemen; and Jude Mohammed, who was killed in a strike in Pakistan.

    “These individuals were not specifically targeted by the United States,” Mr. Holder wrote.

    -------------------

    This is ridiculous. So what are they going to do for the families of those that they killed? Can the family press charges in a case like this?

    Yep, Obama's fault.

    Did he even order this drone strike?

    In other news, why hasn't Obama visited Oklahoma? I mean he did cause the tornado.

    So how are those four awesome sacrifices picked?

    Maybe we should hold an election for them next time.

    They didn't say it was an accident bobbymar, refresh your reading skills. In your party they simply call this collateral damage.

    See it is people involved in the military during obamas presidency...not his "regime".

    I'm not playing anything. Don't act like you care, you are using these people a gas to throw on the Obama fire.

    :confused:

    Anwar al-Awlaki's death was an initiative of the Administration. Were it not for Obama's kill list, none of these people would be dead. Commander-in-chief is not just an honorary title.

    And if it were not for chasing nonexistent WMDs we wouldn't even be here!

    Cause and effect goes beyond terms.

    Obama has droned more Americans than Bush waterboarded terrorists.

    But really, we have a list of people we need to capture or get rid of. What do we want not to have that? Of course not! I blame ineffective military tactics for the deaths, not obamas list.

    What about the thousands of humans they have killed on accident? It's a sad and sorry state when your country will see "Americans" then it's a tragedy but if anybody else then "meh".

    multiply that times 20,000 and you get all the needless deaths of innocent women and kids. Granted, they're not american lives so it's not that important.
