Anwar Awlaki Dead, ACLU Miffed, Ron Paul Dissappointed

Anwar Awlaki, a 9/11 co-conspirator and pal of Nidal Hasan, the muslim U.S. Army Major who murdered 13 Soldiers at Ft. Hood, has finally been sent to hell.

The killings Friday of alleged terrorists cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and computer expert Samir Khan could spark retaliatory attacks against the United States, according to the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security.

The agencies issued a joint intelligence bulletin late Friday that said supporters might seek to portray al-Awlaki as a martyr in a supposed U.S. war against Islam. It says the deaths “could provide motivation for homeland attacks” by “homegrown violent extremists,” the type the two men allegedly tried to recruit or inspire.

The bulletin came less than a day after U.S. and Yemeni government officials announced that al-Awlaki — an American whose fluency with English and technology made him a top terrorist recruiter — was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen.

“It was a joint U.S. military-intelligence operation,” a U.S. official said, adding that the U.S. military helped target al-Awlaki and that manned American military aircraft were flying overhead ready to offer assistance. The drone was operated by the CIA, officials said.

The strike also killed Khan, an American, and two others who were in the same vehicle as al-Awlaki, said another U.S. official who was briefed by the CIA. Khan specialized in computer programming for al Qaeda and produced the terrorist network’s English-language online magazine, Inspire.

……The American Civil Liberties Union said Friday that the killing was part of an American counterterrorism program that “violates both U.S. and international law.

“This is a program under which American citizens far from any battlefield can be executed by their own government without judicial process,” said ACLU Deputy Legal Director Jameel Jaffer.

Thanks, Jaffer. I’m sure your muslim terrorist chums appreciate the gesture.

Ron Paul, the perrenial bat-shit crazy also-ran,  is predictably critical.

Ron Paul, the Texas congressman who is seeking the GOP presidential nomination, on Friday criticized the Obama administration’s action in killing Anwar Awlaki, the American-born cleric who advocated jihad against the United States.
……Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, a libertarian like Paul, also questioned the tactic of killing a U.S. citizen without due process.  Awlaki, a prominent voice in Yemen’s Al Qaeda affiliate, and Samir Khan, an editor of a jihadist magazine, were killed in an air attack in Yemen by what U.S. and Yemeni officials say was an operation that involved U.S. military and intelligence assets. The attack is part of a campaign against Islamic terrorists that included the killing of Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden in May in Pakistan. After a campaign stop at Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire, Paul told reporters that Americans need to think about such actions because Awlaki was born in the United States and was entitled to the same rights as all U.S. citizens. “No, I don’t think that’s a good way to deal with our problems,” Paul said in a videotape of the questioning by reporters. Awlaki “was never tried or charged for any crimes. No one knows if he killed anybody. We know he might have been associated with the ‘underwear bomber.’ http://www.latimes.com/news/politics/la-pn-ron-paul-anwar-awlaki-20110930,0,1545350.story

I couldn’t give one shit less about Awlaki’s citizenship. He was a traitor, muslim extremist, co-conspirator, and enemy combatant. The only ‘due process’ he deserved was a one-way ticket to hell.

  1. You should change your sub-heading to “Apologetic un-Patriot” as long as you believe it’s okay for America to toss the concept of due process out the window. You’re betraying the founding principles of your country. America is not it’s military. Plenty of nations possessed proud military power before the USA came along. America is not “God’s country”. For thousands of years, country’s have claimed the blessing of God. Nothing special about that claim at all. What makes America special is our founding documents which set down THE LAW which our government and its leaders must honor. The revolutionary idea of America is individual liberty and for the first time ever, government control. Part of the equation for controlling tyrannical government is the concept of due process. Love it or leave it, pal.

    The case of Anwar Al-Awlaki is a prime example of why due process is so necessary to prevent government shenanigans. Anyone who knows anything about the history of Alwaki understands that he was either A) a CIA asset or B) a terrorist stooge allowed to roam free as a poster boy to keep Americans afraid of such “homegrown” terrorists – in order that hundreds of billions of my countrymen’s tax dollars could continue to disappear down the “war on terror” foxhole.

    A while back, US officials had a warrant for Alwaki’s arrest waiting for him as he was returning to the US from Yemen. At the last moment, word came from DC telling the officials to allow Alwaki to enter the US unhindered. There are only two possibilities which explain such an action – see A and B above.

    Hell, Al-Alwaki dined at the Pentagon for crying out loud. Hey unPatriot, did you do any research on Al-Alwaki before you decided it was okay for our government to gun down whoever they pleased? I think it’s safe to say they did not want that guy to talk on the witness stand, eh?

    Stop waving the flag like a robot and learn why our founders enacted such ideas as due process.

    1. WGC,
      I’m gonna go out on a limb and say you’re one of those Ron Paul assholes who has never read nor understood the Constitution, (http://sfcmac.wordpress.com/2011/06/23/message-to-ron-paul-and-the-paulbots-youre-as-nutty-as-a-squirrel-turd/) and you’re probably a “9/11 troofer” to boot.

      The military had nothing to do with America? How in the fuck do you think the founders fought the colonies out from beneath British rule and were able to create a set of laws we call the constitution? You have a shit factory for a brain.

      I know a lot about protesting against out-of-control big government. I support the Tea party 100%. You want tyranny? Look no further than the Dems and Obama. They concocted unconstitutional ObamaCare behind closed doors; shutting their GOP counterparts and the citizens out of the process, then rammed it through Congress. They held America and the constitution hostage. Obama uses the Oval office as a conduit for his corruption, Marxist economics, and kowtowing foreign policy.

      I also happen to know a lot about loving the country–having served it for 30 years:

      So, shove your “love it or leave it” up your ass, PAL.

      Hey asshole, did you read anything about Awlaki or the constitution before you knee-jerked your way into a “due process” crying jag?

      “Witness stand”? Fuck that. Awlaki’s activities were a matter of PUBLIC RECORD. Not much of a secret there. Sherlock. I also blogged about the insanity of pandering to muslims like Awlaki.

      I served two tours in Iraq, and two of my assignments as an Intelligence Analyst, were in the Pentagon and the DIA. I was very vocal about the PC shit going on, which didn’t exactly endear me to the chain of command.

      Obama, John Pistole, and Janet Napolitano are the Three Stooges of national security. Homeland Security is a joke. They would rather target 95 year old white ladies in wheelchairs, Iraq war veterans, 2nd Amendment proponents, and outspoken critics, than muslim terrorists.

      Jamaat al Fuqra training camps dot the American landscape. Radical muslims stand on New York City street corners praising the Ft. Hood terrorist atrocity. Muslim recruitment takes place in our prisons, and Imams preach anti-American hate-speech from mosques within our borders.

      Here’s my idea of due process:

      On 12 September 2001, I’d have leveled 3/4ths of the Middle East. Terrorists are bred, funded, indoctrinated, supported, and trained throughout that Islamic cesspool. I’d have started with all the capitals: Baghdad, Damascus, Kabul, Riyadh, Tehran, Islamabad, Amman, all of them. I’d have used MOABs and probably neutron bombs; a beautiful surgical weapon that delivers a high concentration of radiation to kill people but leaves structures intact. The radiation disspates quickly, thus making it safer for ground troop invasion. I’d have sent in the Army to finish off whatever and whoever was left.

      Problem solved. Tax money saved.

      That’s what I’d have done. They want a jihad, give ‘em one. But, I’m a former Soldier and Iraq war vet, not a politician.

      Awlaki was an enemy combatant who gave up any constitutional rights he had when he began working for an organization that was responsible for the deaths of three thousand people on 9/11. He joined Al Qaeda’s war on America and engaged in recruiting terrorists and planning attacks within our borders and against troops in the war zone. He also collaborated with Nidal Hasan in the murders of 13 Soldiers at Fort Hood. He was killed instead of captured, and I won’t lose any sleep over it.

      Stop bitching about a shitbag like Awlaki taking a dirt nap, before you insult me over flag waving.

  2. I agree with you that he was terrible, but questions still linger, and we may never get the answers because he was killed instead of arrested and tried, where the questions could be asked and the facts drawn out. One question is why was this guy reported “dead” about 5 or 6 times already in the past several years? Another question is why was the other alleged terrorist who was killed seen dining at the Pentagon prior to the drone attacks? I agree with Ron Paul on giving people due process, even when they don’t deserve it. Deserving it has nothing to do with it. I don’t agree with Barack’s decision to kill the men. I voted for Barack because he seemed like he would be the peace president. He was given the Nobel Peace Prize. It disappoints me that someone with the peace prize would choose the violent way over the legal way.

    1. TLR,
      There’s a trade off when it comes to kill or capture. If you kill, you might not get pertinent informaton. If you capture, you might eventually get information, but in the meantime, the Left and Islamic sympathizers will wring it for all it’s worth. I worked in Intel during my Army career, and one of our axioms was: “First reports are not always accurate”. The hierarchy is usually too quick with announcements before real confirmation, because they want the PR. I’m all for simply killing them, when necessary.
      As for Awlaki’s presence at the Pentegon, I raised hell about that, too:

      http://sfcmac.wordpress.com/2010/10/23/pentagon-invited-al-qaeda-leader-al-awlaki-to-dinner-just-months-after-911/

      Speaking of the Pentagon, the DOD fired intel analyst Stephen Coughlin because he dared to reveal a covert plan by the Muslim Brotherhood to subvert the United States, using front groups… in the Pentegon.

      The FBI engaged in the same “muslim outreach” insanity:

      Ron Paul is a loony tune.

      You voted for B. Hussein. You poor, naive, kid. The Nobel committee, which has been a joke for years now, really scraped the bottom of the barrel when they gave the “peace prize” to Obama.
      This war, declared by 21st century Ottoman wannabes, ain’t over by a long shot. Keep that in mind every time you hear of another muslim terrorist leader getting waxed.

      CAIR and other radical muslim groups still operate within our borders and there’s still a Dhimmi in the White House. Face it, even with Bin Laden’s anti-climactic death and Awlaki’s ticket to hell, Obama isn’t all that enthusiastic over finishing this war and doing what it takes to eradicate ALL of them.

      So peaceniks can find solace in the fact that when it comes to fighting the Islamic enemy in the war against muslim terrorism, he’s still a poser.
