Egypt: US Kills No Terrorists in Somalia

A U.S. airstrike this morning targeting a “known al-Qaeda terrorist” in Somalia destroys two houses, approximately the size of my bedroom, killing 3 women, 3 children and no terrorists, writes Egyptian blogger D B Shobrawy, who ends his post with: “And that's how you recruit a terrorist.”
