16. There are lots of things not correct

See Comment #5 on this thread.
That article says 'stopped for BREAKFAST' - your excerpt says 'evening barbeque'
Report I've read said the vehicle was leaving a building where alQaeda had just finished a meeting.

The family says the kid was with friends - so his friends are Senior terrorists?

The vehicle the kid was in was the vehicle that Al-Bana was in - that is the vehicle the drone struck.
The target was Al-Banna http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibrahim_al-Banna

----
Two U.S. officials speaking on condition of anonymity stated that the target of the October 14, 2011 airstrike was Ibrahim al-Banna, an Egyptian believed to be a senior operative in Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Another U.S. administration official described Abdulrahman al-Aulaqi as a bystander who was "in the wrong place at the wrong time", stating that "the U.S. government did not know that Mr. Awlaki’s son was there" before the airstrike was ordered
