With more and more criticism both domestically and abroad, the US drone program needs to be defended, so.........

A high-ranking Yemeni security official speaking on the condition of anonymity told McClatchy that the claims of a foiled plot had no basis in fact. That source bemusedly attributed media reports about imminent terror strikes to a single official’s comments, which he cast as a misguided attempt at shifting public opinion in the face of increasing and unpopular American drone strikes.

Indeed, Yemen has remained at a relative normal – except for increased security measures that sent spy planes over the skies of Sanaa and flurry of apparent drone strikes to points farther afield. The most recent drone attack killed at least two suspected militants in the southern province of Lahj Saturday evening.

Again, a Yemeni senior official has stated that the trumped up terror threat, (a tactic also used throughout the Bush admin.) was to defend a widely unpopular drone program that kills more civilians than ALLEGED (key word) terrorists and draw away attention from that.
