Obama Bombs Yemen Hours After Winning Reelection

Not even a full day had passed before newly reelected President Obama ordered another drone strike in Yemen .
Huffington Post :
A White House spokesman did not respond to a request for comment. If it were a American strike, of course, it would have to have been authorized by Obama .
The drone war violates both domestic  and international law , and the Obama administration’s vehement disdain for transparency in government is the only thing keeping it from public and legal scrutiny. Beyond the law, it’s terrorism .
