Barack Obama targeted drone strike kills 16 year old boy…..why?
I have written about the Obama’ regime’s use of drones to kill Anwar al-Awlaki, a radicalized American citizen who was living in Yemen, and my conflicted feelings about this killing a couple of times in the past; the most recent being earlier today when I wrote about the Obama regime’s defense for killing American citizens.
The most troubling aspect of this defense is the Obama regime’s assertion that it needs no proof that the American target is plotting against the United States.
The condition that an operational leader present an ‘imminent’ threat of violent attack against the United States does not require the United States to have clear evidence that a specific attack on U.S. persons and interests will take place in the immediate future
Which leads us to this story: Several weeks after killing Anwar al-Awlaki the Obama regime targeted his 16 year old son, and Denver resident, killing him as he was eating at a restaurant. His crime? Apparently just being the son of Anwar al-Awlaki, here is what Robert Gibbs had to say about the killing when he was asked about it last October:
I would suggest that you should have a far more responsible father if they are truly concerned about the well-being of their children
Simply being the son of a despicable human being now makes you a legitimate target of the Obama regime even if there are no charges against you and without due process. Barack Obama is now the judge, the jury, and the executioner. If Barack Obama had a legitimate reason for ordering the drone strike against this child he needs to explain it to the American people NOW!
