Is this a joke?
"A report in the Washington Post on Monday said the individuals hit in the strike had been peasants collecting scrap metal.
American officials said last week they believed the targets were al-Qaida members, in part because of their Arab-style dress.
The Feb. 4 Hellfire missile strike was conducted by a CIA-operated Predator drone and an unknown number of people were killed.
"We do not know who were the individuals at the strike site," Stufflebeem said, adding at another point, "The indications were there, that there was something untoward that we needed to make go away."
The admiral declined to specify what was occurring, citing concerns about the secrecy of intelligence operations. He said it may take some time to be able to determine who might have been hit in the strike."
Let's see--they don't know who these people were but they were dressed like Arabs and they may have been doing something "untoward." Yeah, better kill 'em just in case. Sheesh.
