Claims that Awlaki was an Al-Qaeda leader or that he was directly involved in any terrorist action have never been substantiated. His murder was clearly just another feather in Obama’s warrior headdress as he launches his re-election campaign this autumn, notes Eric Walberg.
In case you werent aware of this fact, please research how Fox News reported Mr. Awlaki visiting top military brass at the Pentagon 2 months after 9/11, even though he was known to have preached to the 9/11 (highjackers). He was the tall, well dressed arab man who escorted "the underwear bomber" onto the airplane, after ensuring officials that it was a security matter in a back room. He inspired the Fort Hood shooter as well. He is probably Bin-Laden dead, or Seal Team-6 dead. Who knows.
"What a strange and alarming place we’re in when the U.S. government, under a Democratic president, kills two U.S. citizens it dislikes for their thoughts and their words, without formally charging them with any crime or trying or convicting them, using an unmanned drone directed by U.S. personnel many thousands of miles away.
And yet, that is what happened on Friday, when Anwar al-Awlaqi (a.k.a. al-Awlaki) and Samir Khan, both U.S. citizens, were killed in a drone strike in Yemen, along with several companions."
Assassinated American Anwar Al Awlaki, Guest of Honor at Pentagon, Dined with Military Brass Within Months of 9/11Submitted by We the People on Tue, 10/04/2011 - 21:42
Fox News reports the US citizen Obama assassinated, without any charges, had been interviewed by the FBI at least four times and was a guest of honor at the Pentagon, dining with US military commanders. What?
In May, Herman Cain told the Atlantic, "I don't believe that the president of the United States should order the assassination of citizens of the United States. That's why we have our court system, and that's why we have our laws."
Then, this past weekend, right after Anwar al-Awlaki was assassinated, he praised Obama for his actions. Hot Air reported, "Cain told the crowd that he fully supported Barack Obama’s decision to strike Anwar al-Awlaki."
Hey everyone, I hope you guys can help:
Today I posted a link on my wall stating:
"Yes, Awlaki was a bad person. But in America, you're supposed to try American Citizens, as opposed to just shoot them on sight."
It was linked to a video of Jake Tapper talking about Anwar Al-Awlaki.
A good friend of mine actually responded by saying:
Ron Paul has taken a beating over the past few days for his position on the al-Awlaki assassination, but his position really shouldn't be that controversial considering that even a mainstream candidate like Herman Cain has basically said the same thing!
