Appeasement doesn't work libs. Never has.. Never will.
BTW has anyone determined beyond a doubt that were purposely targeting that one individual...or did they target that area and he being an american hater and terrorist as he is...just happened to be there...
Why the hell does wonder boy Obama get the credit for any head name terrorist kiling?....It's not like he's doing the killing himself.
Anyone can give the order to take out a known, proven, wanted terrorist leader...HELLO!
Since when does any American military personal have to wait for wonder boys permission to take out a terrorist leader.....When the seconds of opportunity count?
Typical mind bending liberal propoganda Hupla Crap to make wonder boy look glorious....
Simple mind liberal Americans eat it up like jerks....Ignorance at it's peak

“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”

To those now bashing Obama's decision to target a member of Al Qaeda who was a US citizen, where was your outrage when the president was authorized to do this?Entire text available at: Authorization for Use of Military Force- Sept. 18, 2001Authorization for Use of Military Force
September 18, 2001
Public Law 107-40 [S. J. RES. 23]
To authorize the use of United States Armed Forces against those responsible for the recent attacks launched against the United States.
Whereas, on September 11, 2001, acts of treacherous violence were committed against the United States and its citizens; and
Whereas, such acts render it both necessary and appropriate that the United States exercise its rights to self-defense and to protect United States citizens both at home and abroad; and
Whereas, in light of the threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States posed by these grave acts of violence; and
Whereas, such acts continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States; and
Whereas, the President has authority under the Constitution to take action to deter and prevent acts of international terrorism against the United States: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,
SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
This joint resolution may be cited as the `Authorization for Use of Military Force'.
SEC. 2. AUTHORIZATION FOR USE OF UNITED STATES ARMED FORCES.
(a) IN GENERAL- That the President is authorized to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or persons, in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States by such nations, organizations or persons.
You can't feign "We didn't know". It was all over the news in 2002 - an example: War on Terrorism: CIA can kill Americans in al-Qaida - seattlepi.com
Since Al Awlaki was killed by a US military drone at the direction of the CIA, it appears Obama was legally empowered to take military action against Al Awlaki.
For those who are upset about Anwar Al-Awlaki being killed by drones, would you have a problem if he had been captured and taken to Gitmo? If so, where was your rage when Himdy Yaser, a man born in Baton Rouge, LA, was detained at Gitmo and when Jose Padilla (born in Brooklyn, NY) was detained in a military brig. The left was decrying these actions loudly at that that time saying that these men deserved due process since they were US citizens and the US had them in custody.
Yaser is prisoner #746 at this link to DOD list of prisoners at Gitmo from 2002 to 2006 (PDF): http://www.dod.mil/news/May2006/d20060515%20List.pdf
Here is proof GWB's administration knew Hamdi was a US citizen and had gone to court (Himdy had filed the case) arguing his status as an enemy combatant had stripped him of his rights to habeus corpus and due process: HAMDI et al. v. RUMSFELD, SECRETARY OF DEFENSE, et al :: 542 U.S. 507 :: 2004 :: Full Text :: US Supreme Court Cases from Justia & Oyez)
Here is proof that the GWB's administration knew Padilla was a US citizen and the opinion of the SCOTUS that Padilla's due process rights had been violated by imprisoning him in a military jail and attempting to try him in a military court: RUMSFELD, SECRETARY OF DEFENSE v. PADILLA et al :: 542 U.S. 426 :: 2004 :: US Supreme Court Cases from Justia & Oyez
I don't want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was wedding between the religious fundamentalists and political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it. ~ Billy Graham in Parade magazine February 1, 1981.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
