    Anwar Al-Awlaki: From American Boy to Face of Terror
    Sept. 30, 2011 - Radical al Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki's life may have ended in the violent blast of an airstrike in the heart of Yemen, but it started a half-a-world away in the heart of America.

    You know..........in the future, if an American citizen decides to go over to help and aid terrorist organizations, the government should REVOKE THEIR CITIZENSHIP, then declare them enemy combatants.

    I think treason of that level should be rewarded with revocation of their citizenship. That way, we wouldn't have the problem of killing an American citizen.

    "all enemies, foreign and domestic"

    I think he falls under that catagory. Its nice to think the last thought in the back of his head was the seeker head of a maverick missle.

    It sucks when you aren't number one on the US born terrorist who would be president list.

    Is Obama killing off his competition?

    I agree. Canada as well. We have terrorists here who fought in Afghanistan, were injured and came back to suck our health care.

    Anwar al-Awlaki dead: what it means for US, Yemen
    September 30, 2011 - The assassination of Anwar al-Awlaki, a US citizen and Al Qaeda recruiter in Yemen, will be heralded as a major triumph in the US today. But it has very little to do with Yemen's own problems.

    Al-Awlaki's Death Leaves Gap in al-Qaida
    September 30, 2011 - The death of a senior al-Qaida figure by a U.S. air strike in Yemen leaves a gap in the senior ranks of what counterterrorism officials say is the most lethal of the group's franchises, Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). But how significant a gap is open to question. Was Anwar al-Awlaki primarily an inspirational figure to would-be jihadists? Or did he play a significant operational role for the group as well?
