CIA Drone Kills Al-Qaeda Operative Anwar Al-Awlaki

On Friday, September 30, a CIA drone killed the dangerous American Al-Qaeda operative Anwar Al-Awlaki in Yemen. Here is the story in The Washington Post (10-1-11). This traitor lived more-or-less around the corner from my old house, and I am glad the CIA finally killed him.

After 9-11, Al-Awlaki gave a two-part interview to National Geographic. He masqueraded as a moderate Muslim; but for some reason, I didn't believe him. Read "Attack on America: An Islamic Scholar's Perspective--Part I" (9-28-01) and Part 2 (9-28-01). Al-Awlaki was a stupendous liar who was probably up to his eyeballs in 9-11.

President Obama (9-30-11) said:

Earlier this morning, Anwar al-Awlaki -- a leader of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula -- was killed in Yemen. (Applause.) The death of Awlaki is a major blow to al Qaeda's most active operational affiliate. Awlaki was the leader of external operations for al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. In that role, he took the lead in planning and directing efforts to murder innocent Americans. He directed the failed attempt to blow up an airplane on Christmas Day in 2009. He directed the failed attempt to blow up U.S. cargo planes in 2010. And he repeatedly called on individuals in the United States and around the globe to kill innocent men, women and children to advance a murderous agenda.

The death of al-Awlaki marks another significant milestone in the broader effort to defeat al Qaeda and its affiliates. Furthermore, this success is a tribute to our intelligence community, and to the efforts of Yemen and its security forces, who have worked closely with the United States over the course of several years.

Awlaki and his organization have been directly responsible for the deaths of many Yemeni citizens. His hateful ideology -- and targeting of innocent civilians -- has been rejected by the vast majority of Muslims, and people of all faiths. And he has met his demise because the government and the people of Yemen have joined the international community in a common effort against Al Qaeda.
