Something apparently Bush and Cheney did not even do?
I guess it is just some more of that change you can believe in?
The Obama Administration has taken the unprecedented step of authorising the killing of a US citizen, the radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, linked to the plot to blow up a US airliner on Christmas Day.
Linked to the Christmas underwear bomber?
Hmm, I wonder if the US is targeting, or getting rid of persons that could expose their false flag?
The decision is extraordinary not only because Mr al-Awlaki is believed to be the first American whose killing has been approved by a US President, but also because the Obama Administration chose to make the move public.
Mr al-Awlaki is believed to be hiding in Yemen, home of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), a rapidly growing and active affiliate of the terrorist network that orchestrated the Christmas Day plot.
He is believed to be in Yemen, believed to be an affiliate, believed to be part of.
That's a lot of believing, but believing doesn't equate to fact, reality or truth.
Who does the US claim Mr al-Awlaki is and what had he done?
Mr al-Awlaki spent years in America as an imam. He gained prominence after it emerged that he had been in frequent e-mail contact with Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the army psychiatrist who went on a shooting rampage in Fort Hood, Texas, in which 13 people died last November. After the Christmas Day airliner plot, US and Yemeni officials said that Mr al-Awlaki had met the suspected bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who tried to ignite explosives sewn into his underwear
Tina Foster, of the US-based International Justice Network, told The Times: “I am in shock that they would do this. It is shocking that our Government would go to these extremes, even depriving someone of their life without a legal process.”
I'm getting a tying up lose ends kind of vibe here?
