Suspected US Missile Strike Kills 2 al-Qaida Militants in Yemen

A suspected American missile strike has killed two brothers believed to be al-Qaida militants in a remote region of Yemen.

Yemeni officials said the brothers Abdullah and Mosaad Mubarak died in Shabwa province Thursday, but they did not elaborate on how they were killed. Media reports quote tribal officials and witnesses as saying they suspected it was a U.S. missile strike.

One witness told Reuters that people in the area saw what was believed to be a missile hit the brothers' car, causing it to explode and burn completely.

Castro Criticizes US for Way it Killed Bin Laden

Former Cuban President Fidel Castro has criticized the way the United States carried out the raid against Osama bin Laden, saying the U.S. commandos killed him in front of his family.

Castro made the comments in an essay published by state media on Thursday. He also said the U.S. raid on bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan violated that country's laws and offended its dignity.

Does bin Laden's death change anything for deployed airmen?

Nearly 10 years ago the very fabric of the red, white and blue was tested by the sounds of 767 jets crashing and two monumental buildings falling to the ground. Soon after the dust settled from the downing of the second tower, with the headlines still buzzing over causalities from the horrific events, every American and U.S. service member life was changed forever.

Until this point most American's had only seen visions of terrorism in foreign lands like Europe. Many U.S. service members entered a military life that was somewhat stable.

Bin Laden Doomed Once Raid Began

U.S. forces who attacked Osama bin Laden's compound were operating under rules of engagement that made it likely he would be killed, U.S. officials concede.

The Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday after saying Navy SEALs had orders to capture the al-Qaida leader if he gave himself up, U.S. officials later acknowledged the assault force was ordered to accept a surrender only if its members could be sure he didn't have a bomb hidden under his clothing and posed no other threat.

Survivors Call bin Laden’s Death ‘Bittersweet’

When Wendy Duffman first heard that Osama bin Laden, al-Qaida’s leader and the mastermind behind 9/11, was dead, she felt a sense of elation, then relief.

Her brother, Air Force Tech. Sgt. Scott Eric Duffman, died four years ago in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan -- a war launched in the wake of the deadly terrorist attacks. And as an American Airlines flight attendant in 2001, she lost friends and colleagues on the planes that crashed into the Pentagon and Twin Towers, and onto a field in Pennsylvania.
