This will be wonderful PR. Great for terrorist recruiting, too.

Also interesting to think about in terms of drone use in the US. They can make "mistakes" here as well.

(Reuters) - Fifteen people on their way to a wedding in Yemen were killed in an air strike after their party was mistaken for an al Qaeda convoy, local security officials said on Thursday.

The officials did not identify the plane in the strike in central al-Bayda province, but tribal and local media sources said that it was a drone.

"An air strike missed its target and hit a wedding car convoy, ten people were killed immediately and another five who were injured died after being admitted to the hospital," one security official said.

The drone was being shot at. They decided it was a hostile action. But it is typical behavior for Yemeni wedding guests to shoot into the air.

I'm sure all the family members will understand that it was an accident and will be forgiving.

I know I would be if one of my family members was hit by a drone.

Or option 3, the drone hit the right target.

The Attorney General assured us (by means of a letter to a United States Senator) that American citizens on American soil would not be killed by the United States government through the use of armed drones.
I'm shocked that you would post something which even hints that you disbelieve a statement by a responsible government official.

Why don't we use sniper teams anymore? Sniper teams are a more precise tool. At least have eyes on and they can call in the strike.

I look at it this way.

If it WAS a wedding party, there's now surviving family members who are very angry.

It is now very easy for an AQ recruiter to come up to them and say "We can help you kill Americans."

And now we have more terrorists.

Hearts and minds, etc.
