anwar al awlaki killed

President Barack Obama has never commented publicly on the targeted drone strike that accidentally killed Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, a 16-year-old American boy and the son of al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki.
"He had been born in Denver, said the certificate from the Colorado health department," The New York Times reported. "In
One morning in late September 2011, a group of American drones took off from an airstrip the C.I.A. had built in the remote
"I would suggest that you should have a far more responsible father if they are truly concerned about the well being of their
No more clever wordplay (enhanced interrogations, "patriot" act, targeted killing, kinetic operations) but a simple declaration that the U.S. government will kill its own citizens when it wishes to.
What should be done if there are no obvious battlefields and no certain combatants? Should propagandists be treated as fighters? Are any procedural protections required before a U.S. citizen can be killed?
It is my opinion that a traitor who joined enemy combatants intent on doing our country and our people harm is a lawful target in an armed conflict and was rightly taken out before his dastardly plots could come to fruition.
The underlying unease about Al-Awlaki's assassination is that there is considerable argument about whether he had become "operational" and was actively plotting or whether he was merely inspiring terrorism.
“That’s not a good way to deal with our problems,” he said of the drone strike in Yemen that killed Awlaki. “He was born
The assassination of Anwar Al-Awlaki suggests that due process might be going the way of all good things. If we strip away the inflated rhetoric comparing Al-Awlaki to Osama bin Laden, the facts are troubling.

The Anwar al-Awlak killing can only be interpreted and assayed meaningfully if placed in the context of the 'War On Terror." For America today is not the same country that it was before 9/11.
Mr. Cheney, with all due respect, this is a classic example of when and where actions speak louder than words, and certainly much louder than bluster.
"He slandered the nation," Liz Cheney added, "and I think he owes an apology to the American people. Those are the policies
This week saw the rise of late-in-the-game Christie for President hoopla, and the dramatic, defeat-snatched-from-the-jaws-of-victory final fall of the Boston Red Sox. It also brought the start of Michael Jackson's doctor's trial (thrilling HLN's anchors, though Nancy Grace's wardrobe malfunction was caused by an energetic quickstep, not titillating testimony) and the end of Andy Rooney's run as America's favorite curmudgeon.
