US Drone attack kills American born terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki
By now you have most likely heard the news that one of the most wanted suspected terrorists was one of two Americans killed in a drone attack last night in Yemen. His name was Anwar al-Awlaki and he was an American citizen who had become radicalized and was thought to be the brains behind the “underwear bomber” and the Fort Hood terrorist attack.
I happen to agree with this killing because al-Awlaki was a traitor to his country and we all know that the penalty for treason is death. I am happy that the Obama regime took this murderous bastard out, but I have to wonder how the left feels about this. After all, while running for president Barack Obama promised to show the world that America was a just and noble country by telling the world that terrorists caught fighting against America would be given constitutional rights under the United States constitution and would be given a trial by jury with representation as proof that we were better than the terrorists who have no problem beheading innocent journalists.
The left had no problem protesting against George W Bush, going so far as to call him a war criminal and the biggest terrorist in the world for his prosecution of the war on terror, yet here we have Barack Obama authorizing the killing of an American citizen before he has received his constitutional right of a trial by jury. If the left is to be consistent we should see protests and cries of “Obama is a war criminal” any minute now, but I don’t see that happening. Do you?
So far the only vocal critic on this issue has been a Republican, Ron Paul. When are the Democrats in the Congress who were so vocal in their anti-war rhetoric while George Bush was the president going to condemn this act?
