Obama Issues Kill Order 4 American Cleric

U.S. approves killing of American cleric: (NBC) New Mexico - born extremist is believed to be recruiting terrorists in Yemen.

From Denny:
It's about time our government took action against this traitor. He is a disgrace to those who gave him safe quarter when he was growing up in America and to others who gave him respect as a fellow American. There is nothing holy about this man. He is an imposter as a representative of God or just plain insane - or both.

As to the current White House claiming how rare it is to target other Americans for killing, well, that's not true. It IS true under Democratic administrations. It has never been true under Republican administrations who kill on a whim and at will regularly. Republicans have never been known for doing their due diligence as thoroughly and properly investigating whether allegations are true or not against other Americans, whether they are overseas or not. Nor do the targeted Americans ever get the chance to prove the allegations are wrong. They are just slaughtered.

Depraved Republican Presidents, notably Nixon, have been known to target American children for killing just to get an international incident with one country or another. And that is the core of why I NEVER vote for a Republican in the White House - they just can't stop themselves from callous depraved indifference toward the American people they are supposed to serve and protect.

Republican Presidents use the king mentality and have exercised kill orders on a constant and willful basis in every Republican administration. A notable exception was President Eisenhower who was war weary after World World 2 just like the rest of the country. His military-Big Business industrial complex was quite another - they had a blood lust and wanted to kill on a petty ego's whim. President Kennedy should have taken outgoing President Eisenhower's warning more seriously about the heads of the military and their Big Business handlers. It cost him his life.

The fact that the Obama administration took this long to decide to issue a kill order against another American, a radical terrorist Muslim at that, tells me they took the time to investigate if he was truly a threat. It's one thing for an enemy to have a strong opinion, trying to recruit people to his side of the belief system. It's quite another when said enemy decides to be a traitor to his country and recruit, arrange and plan killings of his countrymen, women and children. Give him no quarter, Mr. President, for he has hardened his heart and chosen a self-destructive path that is now a true danger to everyone.

U.S. approves killing of American cleric: (NBC) New Mexico - born extremist is believed to be recruiting terrorists in Yemen.

The Obama administration has taken the extraordinary step of authorizing the targeted killing of an American citizen, the radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who is believed to have shifted from encouraging attacks on the United States to directly participating in them, intelligence and counterterrorism officials said Tuesday.

Mr. Awlaki, who was born in New Mexico and spent years in the United States as an imam, is in hiding in Yemen. He has been the focus of intense scrutiny since he was linked to Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the Army psychiatrist accused of killing 13 people at Fort Hood, Tex., in November, and then to Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian man charged with trying to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner on Dec. 25.

American counterterrorism officials say Mr. Awlaki is an operative of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the affiliate of the terror network in Yemen and Saudi Arabia. They say they believe that he has become a recruiter for the terrorist network, feeding prospects into plots aimed at the United States and at Americans abroad, the officials said.

*** We all know this is a Cover Your A$$ets Lie: It is extremely rare, if not unprecedented, for an American to be approved for targeted killing, officials said. A former senior legal official in the administration of George W. Bush said he did not know of any American who was approved for targeted killing under the former president.

But the director of national intelligence, Dennis C. Blair, told a House hearing in February that such a step was possible. “We take direct actions against terrorists in the intelligence community,” he said. “If we think that direct action will involve killing an American, we get specific permission to do that...”
