Bush administration's preemptive attack kills 17 innocent men, women, and children…

Damadola is a tiny village in the rugged mountains on the Afghan-Pakistan border. In Damadola lives the poorest of poor. What little they have, most Americans throw away. In reality they only have each other.

Yet, today, Damadola was the scene of stealth U.S. drone air attack. Missiles. Bombs. The target: Ayman al-Zawahri, al-Qaida's No. 2 man. The rationale: The Bush administration’s war-on- terror. The result: 17 men, women, and children confirmed dead! But, “Villagers said more than 30 people had died and others were wounded.”

If the Bush administration thought a terrorist were housed in an American ghetto, would it be just to bomb the ghetto and randomly kill men, women and children? No. By all accounts, it would be murder.
