Obama Approves Wacking Anwar al-Aulaqi. Good For Him!

One has to give credit where credit is due: this policy of Obama’s, and quite a bit of his overseas anti-terrorist tactics, are most goodness

The Obama administration has authorized operations to capture or kill a U.S.-born Muslim cleric based in Yemen, who is described by a key lawmaker as Americas’s top terrorist threat, officials said on Tuesday.

The decision to add Anwar al-Awlaki, of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, to the target list followed a National Security Council review prompted by his status as a U.S. citizen.

Officials said Awlaki directly threatened the United States. “Awlaki is a proven threat,” said a U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity. “He’s being targeted.”

The only thing that doesn’t make all that much sense is the announcement of this. Why tell your target you are going to kill him? Perhaps this is an attempted warning to other terrorists to take a chill pill, but, regardless of the motives, let’s hope Obama succeeds in this venture. As Rusty Shackleford points out, Obama has pretty much given the CIA a free reign, and should be thanked for it.

Unsurprisingly, some people have a problem with this

  • Solves the problem of court venue if they were just caught, doesn’t it? I would not vote for Obama again solely on this issue.
  • Obushma.
  • a few more incremental steps and all of us will be green lighted to be ki-lled.
  • This news has to be the most chilling and disturbing revelation to all thinking Americans about the core values of President Obama, about the steady signficant erosion of the US Constitution, and the ominous growth and encroachment of the SeeEyeAgency over the lives and deaths of citizens of this fragile disintegrating democracy.
  • How long do you think it will be before these measures will be used on your home soil? It’s a very tiny step. If this goes on within a few years, “shoot first, ask questions later” will be your police officer’s *officially sanctioned* modus operandi.
  • Death by the US government. Proof no longer needed.
  • Obama, like Bush, seems to think the executive branch can do whatever the fu(k it wants to with no oversight from anyone. Even assas$inate American citizens. You want to claim there is evidence that this person is now actively participating in “attacks on the US”, let it be determined in court.
  • The president orders a man to be killed? Isn’t that something you’d expect from a banana republic, or perhaps–that country the US loves to hate–Iran?

And it keeps going on and on and on and on…..Another cesspool

  • No Israelis on the list? It figures.
  • Who gets to target the traitors that did 9/11? www.ae911truth.org
  • More made up BS! The bomber was helped on the plane by a sharp dressed man! THE SHARP DRESSED MAN WHO AIDED MUTALLAB ONTO FLIGHT 253 WAS A U.S. GOVERNMENT AGENT.
  • Slippery slope… killing prayer leaders. Isrealis are happy. We are at war with the Muslim world to consolidate their Apartheid regime of Warsaw ghettos.
  • Anwar al-Aulaqi is perhaps the first US citizen put on a death list by the CIA/White House but there another 310 million American citizen available to be put on this list, and rumors will have it that US Presidents have been on this list together with other heads of states. President Harding was however not killed by official police organization but by his wife in San Francisco.
    That USA is a killer nation have been known since time immortal and remember well around 1954 when there was a riot at the Sing Sing prison and police from the surrounding areas was called in to suppress the ungrateful inmates. The police managed to kill outright 47 people, but when checking the identity of the dead it was found that 43 of the dead was prison wardens.
  • This story sure brings out the loons.

It’s rather amusing, since the Washington Post was just complaining about their comments being a cesspool, and blaming the Right. Anyhow, I’m hoping soon to read their outrage over al-Aulaqi being terminated with hollow chocolate bunnies of the apocalypse. Or precision guided missiles. Whichever.
