Bravo to our troops and may God bless them! Thrilled we have facilitate his meeting with Allah. He’s shocked, no doubt, to find the elevator going down.

US-born radical Islamist cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, a key al-Qaeda leader, has been killed in Yemen, the country’s defence ministry said.

US President Barack Obama said his death was a major blow to al-Qaeda.

Awlaki, of Yemeni descent, has been on the run in Yemen since December 2007.

The US said that as a key figure in al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), he had played a “significant role” in plots to blow up US airliners and had sought use poison to kill US citizens…

Yemen’s defence ministry statement said only that Awlaki had died in Khashef in Jawf province, about 140km (87 miles) east of the capital, Sanaa, “along with some of his companions”.

US and Yemeni officials later named one of those as Samir Khan, also a US citizen but of Pakistani origin, who produced an online magazine promoting al-Qaeda’s ideology.

And to think we were talking about the al-Qaida magazine just yesterday ;)

    One thing I can NOT stand is these sanctimonious Islamic nitwit “clerics” on TV arrogantly waving their damn index fingers at us! Good to know this hateful Awlaki tool was finally blown up and dispatched to his masters in Hell.

    “Just because I’m Islamophobic, doesn’t mean they’re not trying to kill me!”

    For me it’s most interesting where the various candidates are coming in on this – both Huntsman and The Ronulan have come out supporting warrants for terrorists. As if a worthless piece of paper had ever stopped terrorism in all of history…

    Subjects like Anwar al-Awlaki don’t deserve a quick death by drone. So be it, he is no longer a threat that is ignored. Next

    Something about this whole deal kinda creeps me out…

    OK, he was a committed Islamofascist Homicidal Maniac Barbarian that would either k*** or convert every American to Islam, blah, blah, blah, etc…or have his brainwashed minions/drones to do it for him. That part is a given to most sane, rational folks who still believe in Western Civilization.

    On the other hand, he was an American Citizen and not like all the others sitting in Gitmo that deserve to meet their Maker sooner rather than later, like KSM(who plead guilty btw)

    But here’s the BUT. Even bin Dead Laden(not a US Citizen) was indicted by the United States on June 8, 1998. Was there an actual, formal, legal, specific, hardcopy indictment issued against this piece of human excrement laying out
    item by item of what he was accused of doing? Was he ever put on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorist List? Or are we just to ‘take the word’ of the Barry Soetoro Dictatorship and Soul Food Cafe’, that he needed to be ‘putdown’ like the dog that he was with a Hellfire into his brain?

    The reason I bring this subject up is that Jake Tapper had a few choice questions for ‘Eric Stolz’ the Press to Play Secretary in Charge of Propaganda at the White House briefing today. It was like…’because we said so…’

    Going to the ‘extreme’, if you ‘displease’ El Presidente’ from anywhere in the world, could you expect the same ‘surprise’ if you could be used for his domestic political purposes?

    Something about this whole deal kinda creeps me out…

    Ok…so some are upset he wasn’t read his “rights”. Ok…

    Mr. al-Awlaki, you have the right to remain silent.

    BOOM!

    If you give up the right to remain silent, it means I missed and am not that great a shot. Excuse me while I reload.

    If I DIDN’T miss…anything you say…ain’t gonna be much…

    When I recommended they open anwar and DRILL BABY DRILL! I didn’t realize there could be two outcomes. Now that the scumbag has been settled, let’s get busy with the second!

    The only success Obama is having is continuing what Bush did to our enemies……….the rest, not so good.

    This bastard called for the overthrow of this country, and for the murder of innocent Americans here and around the world. He was linked to the crotch and times square bombing attempts. He declared war on this country. On his own country! That is treason and made him an enemy of the state. A clear and present danger. I have no problem with what the President did.
