Did an 8-Year-Old Spy for America?

U.S. Drone Killed Yemeni Man After Boy Planted Tracking Chip


The United States was reportedly able to target an alleged al-Qaeda operative named Adnan al-Qadhi for a drone strike after U.S. allies in Yemen convinced an eight-year-old boy to place a tracking chip in the pocket of the man he considered to be his surrogate father. Shortly after the child planted the device, a U.S. drone tracked and killed al-Qadhi with a missile. He was killed last November, less than 24 hours after President Barack Obamas re-election. Gregory Johnsen writes about the case in his new article "Did an 8-Year-Old Spy for America?" published in The Atlantic.

1. Seems a little out of character for
a nation that some still think of a a bastion of freedom and democracy.
