"Just six days ago, my village was struck by a drone, in an attack that terrified thousands of simple, poor farmers. The drone strike and its impact tore my heart, much as the tragic bombings in Boston last week tore your hearts and also mine.
What radicals had previously failed to achieve in my village, one drone strike accomplished in an instant: there is now an intense anger and growing hatred of America."
Farea Al-Muslimi, a Yemeni speaking to the Senate Judiciary Committee in a hearing on the legality of the drone war.
As Glenn Greenwald put it: “The matrix broke today and an actual Yemeni was allowed to testify about drones in the Senate - he was brilliant.”
