A Just Act of War – NY Times


The United States did not claim the power to kill Mr. Awlaki because of his political views or because he was a mere member of a Qaeda affiliate against which Congress had authorized the use of force. It claimed the power to kill him, rather, because he was an operational leader of a Qaeda affiliate that had been involved in terrorist plots on American soil and because he was hiding in a country that lacked the capacity to arrest him and bring him to justice  – From the article

It saddens me that there is still gnashing of teeth about whether of not this man received his American civil liberties. He is a terrorist. He HAS no civil liberties. He wouldn’t have gone to Yemen if he was interested in them.
