Good News! Al Qaeda Leader Anwar Al-Awlaki Reported Killed, Realizes Only Male Virgins Left In Paradise

The good news tag is not meant to be it’s usual sarcasm

(CBS News) Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S.-born radical Islamic preacher who rose to the highest level of al Qaeda’s franchise in Yemen, has been killed.

Al-Awlaki, born in New Mexico, has been linked to al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula’s (AQAP) attempted bombing of a U.S. passenger jet over Detroit on Christmas day, 2009, and was thought to be a leader of the group.

A U.S. government official confirms to CBS News senior security correspondent David Martin that al-Awlaki was killed. Yemen’s Defense Ministry was first to tell CBS News of the strike, but given previous reports which turned out to be erroneous, the relatively rapid U.S. confirmation is crucial, and bolsters witness accounts that it was a U.S. drone strike that killed the al Qaeda figure.

The Associated Press reported that an unidentified source said the U.S. believes al-Awlaki was killed in a strike by U.S. jets and drones on his convoy.

That is excellent news, and, for a change, we do need to give Mr. Obama some credit for continuing to escalate the global war on Islamic terrorism, er, Operation Overseas Contingency, and going after terrorists in nations across the Eastern hemisphere. I think Obama enjoys seeing bombs dropped.

Of course, this brings out the unhinged liberals

  • Guy from New Mexico Executed Without Trial Just sayin’
  • Extra judicial killing of a United States Citizen.
  • They finally did it If he was killed by the Yemini forces as this report says, those forces were probably either led or directed by the U.S. No trial, no evidence need be presented to execute an American because the Obama administration decreed that he was guilty.

And here’s Glenn Greenwald

The due-process-free assassination of U.S. citizens is now reality

After several unsuccessful efforts to assassinate its own citizen, the U.S. succeeded today (and it was the U.S.).  It almost certainly was able to find and kill Awlaki with the help of its long-time close friend President Saleh, who took a little time off from murdering his own citizens to help the U.S. murder its.  The U.S. thus transformed someone who was, at best, a marginal figure into a martyr, and again showed its true face to the world.  The government and media search for The Next bin Laden has undoubtedly already commenced.

Interestingly, a stroll through the left-o-sphere finds virtually no mention of this news. Even Excitable Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs, who made his chops discussing Islamic terrorism, ignores the story. I guess the far left is trying to figure out how to spin this as an Obama and liberal win after so much wailing, hand wringing, and teeth gnashing over Obama’s kill order on al-Awlaki.

More: Oh, my, the loon-atic left is out in force

What we’ve witnessed with Awlaki’s death is the first official assassination based on a citizen practicing his First Amendment rights.

Got that? Preaching violence against US citizens, calling for Jihad, advocating the destruction of the US, and involvement with terrorist activities is now “practicing his 1st Amendment Rights.”

And more: Via The Jawa Report, the strike also got Samir Khan, another home grown Islamist wackjob (or, should that now be, wackedjob?)

    The unhinged left is in a tizzy over Obama. They thought they had found the holy graille for their cause. Instead they found the “Holy Shit” really….no way dude guy that opposes them at almost every turn.

    Not even Obama could pretend to be as unhinged and extreme as his far left unhinged base and not be incarcerated by now.

    So he continues to muddle on with his incessant COMMUNITY ACTIVIST, non stop REALITY TV series of how not to be a president, while yes…

    I am afraid its ture people..

    YOU…DID…ELECT….THIS….CLOWN….TO….BE….OUR….PRESIDENT.

    So the unhinged left must find ways to continue to bash America by bashing Bush, The Tea Party, Corporations, while decrying their own “GUY” by making sure that everyone understands the other side is worse.

    So what we are left with is once again……Jimmy Carter reincarnated. His own base is opposed to him but would never vote against him. Those true classical liberals are afraid of him because they like their jobs in congress but have to deal with a congress that has been over run by progressive congressmen and you have the independents who lean left but even they cant believe how far left Obama is or the congress has become.

    The reality tour continues…….The idealistic foreign policy does not work….Carter Tried it and Iran took hostages. Obama is trying it and Iran is moving war ships to patrol our atlantic coast line.

    The reality series that features the “soup nazi” and “the one” is a failure…..scheduled to be canceled in early 2012. In the meantime………join me wonchan in donning my tinfoil hat and drowning out the “tragedy” that this shakespearean play is having not only on America but the world.

    November 2011 cannot come soon enough for us all.

  2. The amazing thing is that despite all the criticism of Obama from the left, their losing their minds over Obama going on the war path against AQ, and everything else, they’ll still support him.

    This does have troubling implications. Particularly when one considers that those of us on the right are considered domestic terrorists.
    This is not to say that we shouldn’t have killed Alwacky.

    Doesn’t that describe much of the liberal commies and radical anarchists in this nation? Some have even joined terror-based organizations to bomb, kill, and destroy right here on US soil. Do we assassinate them?

    Nope, we hire them as advisers and let them write books on how great it was being a underground terrorist.
