As Michelle Malkin explains:
Obama’s far left flank will be unhappy if the mission to kill Awlaki, an American citizen, was successful. They will again decry such drone strikes against American citizens as unprecedented and lawless.Malkin goes on to detail the crimes committed by Awlaki and Khan. Rusty at the Jawa Report, who was personally threatened by Khan, also has more. I suggest checking them out.
On this, I will come to Obama’s defense.
Awlaki’s membership and leadership in al Qaeda is undisputed.
We are at war.
