Awlaki and Khan Dead, Dead, Dead

Only weeks after the dastardly attacks of 9/11, Anwar al-Awlaki attended a luncheon at the Pentagon. Yemeni officials reported today the bill was delivered by Hellfire missile from an American CIA drone; Anwar al-Awlaki is dead. Along with him in hell is loser Samir Khan, the co-editor/writer of "Inspire" webzine, the slick terrorist web publication which recruited more losers to the terrorist cause with articles like "Making a bomb in the kitchen of your mom."

Jawa Report has much more on both losers and greater coverage of the breaking news as they've been following Awlaki and Khan since the start. Khan even threatened the life of Jawa's beloved Rusty who writes, "The really personal news here would be that Samir Khan is dead. As long time readers know, Samir and I have had personal disputes over the years. It was Samir, then blogging as Inshallahshaheed, who threatened to kill my family. He even made this nice little graphic to go along with the threat."

Michelle Malkin writes in a rare defense of the Obama administration, "Obama’s far left flank will be unhappy if the mission to kill Awlaki, an American citizen, was successful. They will again decry such drone strikes against American citizens as unprecedented and lawless.

On this, I will come to Obama’s defense.

Awlaki’s membership and leadership in al Qaeda is undisputed.

We are at war.

The Supreme Court set the precedent for Obama’s and our military’s actions in 1942."

Of all the idiotic, boneheaded ideas and actions pursued by Barack Obama, the use of drones, Hellfire missiles, and death from the skies to the bad guys is not one of them. Obama stepped-up the use of drone missile attacks begun by the Bush Administration.

Speaking at Admiral Mullens' retirement ceremony, Obama said, "The death of Awlaki is a major blow to Al Qaeda's most active operational affiliate," Obama said Friday. "He took the lead in planning and directing efforts to murder innocent Americans ... and he repeatedly called on individuals in the United States and around the globe to kill innocent men, women and children to advance a murderous agenda."

He said the strike is "further proof that Al Qaeda and its affiliates will find no safe haven anywhere in the world."

Doin' a heckuva job, Barry!

Now watch for Obama to take full credit for killing Awlaki and Khan like he did the killing of bin Ladin and make it a campaign issue.

and there is Ron Paul claiming we "assassinated" Awlaki, because we didn't give him a fair trial before killing an al-Queda terrorist and American traitor. pfffttttt.

I do not care who takes the credit just as long as these scumbags get their virgins. Don

Bonnie & Clyde allegedly robbed banks, were believed to have killed at least nine policemen and murdered several civilians; they were never arrested, tried, and convicted; nevertheless, they were killed by Louisiana government authorities in a planned ambush. I doubt Ron Paul objects to that.

John Dillenger also robbed banks and was charged with killing a police officer, but was never convicted. Still, government agents killed him outside a movie theater in Chicago in an ambush with great risk to civilians on the street. I doubt Ron Paul objects to that.

Admiral Yamaoto commanded the Imperial Japanese Navy during WWII and commanded the attack on Pearl Harbor that killed 2000 Americans. Though there is no evidence that Yamamoto personally killed anyone anywhere at anytime, his plane was shot down by American fighter planes on direct orders from President Roosevelt. I doubt Ron Paul objects to that.

There are many more examples of American government authorities killing persons who were found to be a enough of threat to peace and security to have them killed. If Ron Paul wants to call these actions 'assassination', that's fine, another bad guy down. But, if Ron Paul, a USAF flight surgeon during the Vietnam War, cannot bring himself to the realization that the dark arts are part of being President, then he's as fit for command as John Kerry, the haughty, French looking senator from Massachusetts who also served in Vietnam.

Anwar al-Awlaki surrendered his American citizenship when he joined a foreign force sworn to the destruction of our nation.

Good point about how various criminals in the United States were shot dead by a direct order.

IMO, Ron Paul has cooked his goose with his inane position on the killing of this terrorist.

I think so, too, AOW. I've a nephew, a few years out of Naval patrols of the Gulf and Indian Ocean, who was whole heartedly for Ron Paul, but dropped Paul for this.

However, he's still valuable to the campaign because he's willing talk rough about subjects the others would like to go away.
