At least 24 civilians die in first extra-judicial killing of Trump administration

Nawar Al-Awlaki, 8 years old, daughter of Anwar Al-Awlaki, was killed in this latest US raid — on foot, not drone — of a house in a Yemeni village, as well as 10 other children, 6 women, and 8 other male villagers.

These villagers are from the same village that was struck by drones in 2013 killing many members of a wedding party. The same village, in other words, was struck twice in little more than three years.

I’m not sure the relation to Trump, besides the undeclared war, started under Bush, and continued under Obama, continues to escalate.

Let’s not forget that a lot of Trump policies are the continuation of the seeds laid in previous administrations.
