Abdulrahman Anwar al-Awlaki was a 16-year-old American citizen from Denver.
Then he died in a drone strike.

Today the Obama White House said drone strikes are “ethical” and “wise.”

Tell that to Abdulrahman’s family.
NBC News reported:

Of the scores of people dubbed terrorists and taken out by American military drone strikes, three men — all killed in the fall of 2011 — were U.S. citizens.

And their lives illustrate the complexity of the issue, recently brought to light amid a newly discovered government memo that provides the legal reasoning behind drone strikes on Americans.

Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan were killed by a missile strike in Yemen on Sept. 30, 2011, while al-Awlaki’s son, Abdulrahman, was killed in the country just weeks later.

Since the attacks, family members have called the deaths unjust and sued the U.S. government, calling the killings unconstitutional…

…The most controversial drone strike took place on Oct. 14, 2011, when 16-year-old Abdulrahman was killed by U.S. forces.

Family of the Denver-born teenager say he had no ties to terrorist organizations and was unjustly targeted because of his father.

Nassar al-Awlaki, grandfather of Abdulrahman and father to Anwar, said he tried to protect his grandson as Anwar al-Awlaki’s profile grew.

In December, Nassar al-Awlaki told CNN, “In Anwar it was expected because he was under targeted killing, but how in the world they will go and kill Abdulrahman. Small boy, U.S. citizen from Denver, Colorado.”

Of course, if George Bush would have drone bombed this kid the left would be calling for impeachment. But, because it was Obama who ordered the hit, the left is mostly silent. Their hypocrisy is only outdone by their dishonesty.

    What, the blatant hypocrisy of a murdering president and his so-called justice system?

    Obama is more the cowboy than Bush could have ever hoped to be.

    C’mon Les Claypool, we need another song for this president. Look at him go, look at him go, Yeeeeehawww.

    Lyrics of a song aimed at Bush and his war against Iraq, which now fits Obama and his drone fetish. Language content warning. Coincidentally it was on an album titled The Big Eyeball In The Sky.

    Somebody tell me to stop. hehe.

  2. What was he doing in Yemen?

    Looks like drone target practice. It seems he was quite successful.

    We also knew about it then. It might have been posted here back then (I wasn’t posting here back then, so I don’t know), but it’s here now too, in light of Obama and Holders recent comments on the topic. Making it relevant again. If it were Bush, the msm would have “droned” on about it 24/7.

    i thought it was the guy on the right who was droned to
    death, never heard mention of “his son” until this GP post..

  5. I read a report by a person who gets information from an informant who said Obama is lazy but has a fascination with drones.

    This young man could have been a terrorist in training, but it doesn’t explain how these Americans were killed without due process. Shouldn’t you charge these people with a crime first and perhaps get some intelligence out of them too before condemning them to death with a judgment of guilty for crimes. Let’s face it – this is Obama. He wants to be able to kill Americans, even on American soil if he wants to, without any process of any kind. He is a criminal – arrest him.

  6. If Obama ordered the killing of somebody’s son he would look like young Abdulrahman here.

    Oh he did order his assassination?…..never mind.

    “Well, at least we now know the one thing right wingers hate more than Islamic terrorists…”

    Ignorant trolls?

  9. OT

    In Saudi Arabia, an Islamic cleric who admits to raping, torturing and killing his daughter received a fine but no jail time for his heinous crime. Saudi media reports that the father paid 200,000 riyals ($50,000 US) in “blood money” for his crime, but will not be required to serve any time in prison.

    In response to the heinous crime, and lack of justice for five-year old victim Lama al-Ghamdi, the women’s rights activist Manal al-Sharif and others issued a press release on Feb 2, and launched a Twitter campaign using the hashtags “#AnaLama” (Arabic for “I am Lama”) and #IamLama, demanding legislation criminalizing violence against women and children.

    Fayhan al-Ghamdi, the victims father and a popular Islamic preacher who has made numerous television appearances promoting Islam, confessed to the heinous crime. Ghamdi told Saudi officials he used cables and a cane on his five-year-old daughter, leaving her with multiple injuries, including a crushed skull, broken ribs and left arm, extensive bruising and burns. In addition, one of Lama’s fingernails had been torn off. Hospital staff reports the child’s rectum had been torn open and the abuser had attempted to burn it closed.

    Reports indicate the father had doubted his five-year old daughter’s virginity… REad more via The Washington Examiner…

  10. Mitt Romney didn’t mention this during his campaign why?

  11. Beautiful song:</i.

    Yes it is. Thanks for the links.

    Here's one back at you .. from back in the day.

  12. WTF? Being an American citizen doesn’t give a person an automatic “Pass” to do anything they want. Daddy is a big time terrorist jihadi and junior is following in his footsteps: Kill the little turd and flush his remains down the sewer.

  13. He wants to be able to kill Americans, even on American soil if he wants to,

    And what do you base that on?

  14. Let’s not become like the Left and oppose drone strikes on our islamic jihadist enemies.

    i never oppose anything that gets an enemy dead..

    but for every one downed, several more pop up, O et
    al are like bin Laden surrogates for recruiting jihadis..

    ==

  16. What was the kid doing in Yemen? Does it never occur to people to stay out of places we are targeting with drones?

  17. Just a father and son terrorist trip.
    the perfect way to bond in the arab world
