Obama has approved targeting a Muslim cleric.
The Obama administration has taken the extraordinary step of authorizing the targeted killing of an American citizen, the radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who is believed to have shifted from encouraging attacks on the United States to directly participating in them, intelligence and counterterrorism officials said Tuesday.
ah, endless war. We still haven’t gotten the previous bad guy, you know, the one who ordered his henchmen to use planes for missiles, ending up killing nearly 3000 Americans. He’s still out and about. Way to give a boost to al-Awlaki’s standing among his peers. Way to make him more than he is.
