Yemen: Open Letter to Obama

Yemeni blogger Noon Arabia writes an open letter to US President Barak Obama in which she says:

All Yemenis are against terrorism and condemn Al-Qaeda, yet are also against the violent and unethical use of predator drones in combating them. We are against the death of civilians, whom you refer to as collateral damage in the war against terror. We are against the long-term effects on their communities and their lives. We are against any extrajudicial killings.
