SANAA, Yemen (CNN) -- Six suspected al Qaeda members -- including an al Qaeda chief wanted in the bombing of the USS Cole -- were killed early Monday in Yemen when a CIA drone launched a "Hellfire" missile and struck the car they were traveling in, sources told CNN.
It was the first direct U.S. strike against Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda network outside Afghanistan since the U.S.-led war on terrorism began after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Officials with the Central Intelligence Agency and Pentagon refused to discuss the report.
The sources who spoke to CNN said the Hellfire missile was launched from an unmanned Predator aerial vehicle. All six people in the car died, they said. (More on Predator)

The US is disrespecting sovereign nations constantly when literaly kidnapping people they call "terror suspects" to bring to Gitmo.
It seems his unit was on the battlefield when they started to take fire from enemy combatants. They returned fire to these "innocent victims". Two US soldiers were killed in the battle. About 12 or so enemies were killed. Some of the enemies gave up when they knew they had no chance. They put their guns in the air and surrendered to the US forces. My friend wish he could have killed them all. He was so mad because he had lost a couple of his own. But none the less he along with his unit knew the right thing to do was to take them into custody.

You are talking about enemy soldiers who should be treated as POWs after capture. They are a MILITIA, and they were defending themselves from American soldiers.
They are NOT enemy combatants. They had NOTHING to do with 9-11. They are Iraqis who are fighting a FOREIGN OCCUPIER, not "terrorists".
You are now occupying a so-called Democratic country, while you rape their resources in the name of Freedom and Hailburton.
