President Barack Obama has admitted to and crowed about having
CIA agents target and kill three American citizens, two adults
and the teenage son of one of the men, with a killer drone. The
trio was slain in separate attacks in the fall of 2011. The
elder al-Awlaki, Anwar, and Samir Khan died in Yemen from a
missile strike by one of Obama¹s Predator drones on Sept.
30, 2011. The younger al-Awlaki, 16-year-old Abdulrahman, was
killed a couple of weeks later while eating at an outdoor
restaurant. (A fourth American-born citizen, Kamal Derwish, was
killed by a Predator drone in Yemen while riding in a car with
an al-Qaida leader in 2002.)
Here we have two men and one boy executed without trial. This
extrajudicial killing has been lauded by those on both the right
and left as just. They say this with no evidence presented in
court of crimes having been committed by the three. The only
³evidence² is the word of the government and its
propaganda machine the mainstream media.
As Judge Andrew Napolitano points out, the President may
kill only after due process, in self-defense or under a
declaration of war. None of the three had ever been convicted of
a crime in the United States. None had taken up arms against the
United States. None was near a battlefield.
