This Will Come Back to Bite Us in the Ass

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.

  1. Why will it bite us in the ass and what would you do diferently at this present (no time machines)

  2. that’s an American citizen that the government has decided to simply kill. What if the government decides to consider you an enemy of the state without you getting a chance to defend yourself against the charges?

  3. and the tactics you would use to extract this guy alive and mirandized from his heavily fortified hideout entrenched in the remote and lawless region of a country we have no presence in are…..? Or we could just send a hellfire his way. I’m all about practical solutions. Whats yours?

  4. strip him of his citizenship and then target him. But as long as he is a citizen of this country, you just can’t target him for assassination.

  5. so it’s just a procedural beef then. If anything it would come back to bite Obama in the ass but it won’t. Who would disagree with killing Awlaki? Even if somebody didn’t do the stuff in the right order.

  6. um, you’d figure conservatives would, what with their utter fear of government overreach of citizens’ rights and freedoms. But hey, that seems to all be bullshit.

  7. rather quiet in this neck of the woods… maybe you could do something on illegal immigration. That’s usually a big hit.
