Posted by The Huffington Report on Friday, January 28, 2018 12:37:53When I saw a drone strike that killed a man and injured many others, I knew it wasn’t the first time drones have been used in an urban setting.
It was during the 2011 uprising in Yemen, when the US-backed Saudi-led coalition used the Predator drone to kill thousands of Houthi fighters.
The same drone strike killed a young girl on the outskirts of Sanaa, Yemen, in 2013.
It is not known what led to the killing of the girl, but the killing was widely condemned by human rights groups.
The drones, often equipped with camera-equipped cameras, have also been used by the United Arab Emirates to target suspected Houthi rebels in Yemen.
The United States has been heavily criticized by human-rights groups for its use of drones in its conflict in Yemen and elsewhere.
In February, the Senate approved a bill to authorize the use of unmanned aircraft for targeted killings of terrorists, and to prohibit the use or transfer of drones for any purpose other than counterterrorism, a move that will likely not take effect until the next president takes office in January 2021.
But there is also a growing sentiment that the drone wars have been largely unnecessary.
Drones can be used to track and kill individuals at a distance, and they can be deployed in areas where there are no known threats to civilians.
But in some cases, such as in Yemen during the conflict, drones have caused civilian casualties that have been ignored by the US government.
The Pentagon, which oversees the CIA and other spy agencies, has been lobbying for increased transparency about the use and misuse of drones, as well as for congressional oversight of the drone programs.
In a statement on Friday evening, the Pentagon said that the Senate’s bill would “give the public the most complete picture of the capabilities of our armed forces and allow for more meaningful oversight of those capabilities and the use, or misuse, of them.”
It added that the measure “will ensure that our nation’s military, intelligence, and law enforcement agencies are held accountable for any misuse of unmanned aerial vehicles.”
The Senate bill has been endorsed by both Republican and Democratic senators.
It passed the Senate on a 56-36 vote on Thursday, and is now headed for President Donald Trump’s desk.
But there is some skepticism among civil liberties advocates about whether the bill is going to have the desired impact.
For example, the bill would prohibit the CIA from using drones to target American citizens, even though the agency is already prohibited from doing so.
The agency could be authorized to use the drones for counterterrorism purposes, but such actions are currently classified, and the president cannot order them.
Another important issue is that the bill prohibits the CIA’s use of the Predator and Reaper unmanned aircraft, which are currently operated by the military.
These drones can be remotely piloted to carry out certain missions, such the tracking of suspected terrorists and other targets.
The Senate bill would prevent the CIAs drones from being used to carry those missions, however, because they are unmanned aircraft.
