Secret US Assassination Drone Base Exposed By Satellite Imagery
Science Channel experts say commercial satellite imagery has uncovered a covert U.S. assassination drone base in the middle of the Saudi desert.
Commercial satellite imagery spots something strange in the middle of a vast desert. It looks like an airport runway, but there are no planes.
The airport appeared in one of the most remote areas on earth out of no where.
It was not there in the previous years satellite imagery.
Science channel expert analysis of the facility reveals it is a covert military installation being used as a covert drone base to conduct CIA ordered assassinations in Yemen.
Buildings visible in the image support the theory that the facility is a secret drone base as they match other known U.S. drone bases around the world.
Similar to Bagram in Afghanistan, the facility may also double as a secret CIA “black site” used to hold and torture enemy combatants renditioned under the NDAA as part of the war on terror.
Both are fully plausible explanations, given the close proximity to Yemen.
The Science Channel reports “Drones are used for targeting the enemy. That means direct kills.”
As the Science Channel reports the U.S. leads is leading a coalition with Saudi Arabia to conduct bombings in Yemen in support of government forces fighting rebels who, like in Syria, have aligned with Islamic militants such as Al Qaeda and the Islamic State.
Over the last few months the U.S. and Saudi airstrikes have come under increased scrutiny as the United nations and the international community is denouncing the drone strikes war crimes.
According to reports over ten thousand innocent civilians have been killed in Yemen.
