The Drone That Killed My Grandson By Nasser al-Awlaki Published: July 17, 2013Submitted by carlsbaddj on Tue, 07/23/2013 - 10:29
"My grandson was killed by his own government. The Obama administration must answer for its actions and be held accountable. On Friday, I will petition a federal court in Washington to require the government to do just that.
Abdulrahman was born in Denver. He lived in America until he was 7, then came to live with me in Yemen. He was a typical teenager — he watched “The Simpsons,” listened to Snoop Dogg, read “Harry Potter” and had a Facebook page with many friends. He had a mop of curly hair, glasses like me and a wide, goofy smile.
In 2010, the Obama administration put Abdulrahman’s father, my son Anwar, on C.I.A. and Pentagon “kill lists” of suspected terrorists targeted for death. A drone took his life on Sept. 30, 2011."

A writer at the Atlantic can see the elephant in the room and asks who are the REAL "racists?"
"President Obama: Pitch Perfect on Trayvon, Yet Silent on Abdulrahman
Do Americans care as much about justice and individual rights when Muslim Americans are killed?"

I posted this a few days ago... Look at some of the comments on imgur. People don't have a clue the US govt has targeted and killed American citizens (BTW- without trials!) http://www.dailypaul.com/292582/time-to-check-some-priorities
