Thank the Wall Street Journal for Covering Drone Missile Critics

Thanks to emails from Freedom Forward activists, the Wall Street Journal has begun improving its coverage of US drone missile attacks.

The online version even includes Reuters video footage of Yemeni civilians expressing their fears of being killed by US drone attacks.
