US drones yet again targeted al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula fighters in Yemen, this time outside the capital of Sana'a. The strike today is the fourth by the US in Yemen in five days. The US has expanded the drone campaign throughout all of Yemen over the past year.
The CIA-operated, remotely piloted Predators or the more deadly Reapers attacked a vehicle as it traveled in a rural area outside of Sana'a, according to Reuters. Six AQAP members are said to have been killed in the attack. No senior AQAP fighters are reported to have been killed in today's strike.
In 2012, the US launched 42 drone strikes in Yemen against AQAP and its political front, Ansar al Sharia. The previous year, the US launched 10 drone and air strikes against the al Qaeda affiliate.
Although five senior AQAP operatives were killed in strikes in Yemen in 2012, the group's top leadership cadre remains intact. Said al Shihri, the deputy emir of AQAP, is thought to have recently died from wounds suffered in a drone strike in December 2012, but the report has not yet been confirmed.

I’ve never noticed that Muslims have any reservations about killing other Muslims. It seems to be their favorite past time.
I highly doubt that. Chances are the obomination is just causing chaos just like here in the States.
They want war everywhere so they can imprint their fix
Order out of chaos
First gays in the military. Now the CIA goes rouge? Oh the humanity!
but ain't the fix already in? Everybody on capital hill went along with a clintoon fixer upper. Heard zer0 ordered a fix, a clintoon fixer upper, and congress was all smiles today. More money said the congressional elite? Heard a resounding ... No problem. Yep, the fix is in.
muslims killing muslims. How very uncommon.
Not enough. Hellfire missiles are purchased by the truckload. Let’s keep the stock rotated.
I am talking about after the disaster on the horizon
Their fix = one world order = global communism
Bingo. And you’ll never be able to pull off One World Under Communism until you deal with your little Muslim Problem.
Hence the drone strikes.
Two sects. Sunni and Shia. One is a minority some places.
