ON OCT. 14, a U.S. drone strike in southeastern Yemen took the lives of nine people, including Ibrahim al-Banna, a senior operative with al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and the intended target of the strike. Another casualty: Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, a 16-year-old American and the son of radical cleric and AQAP agent Anwar al-Awlaki. The elder Awlaki, also a U.S. citizen, was targeted and killed Sept. 30 in another attack.
