The Facts in the Case of the Late Anwar al-Awlaki

On the murder of Anwar al-Awlaki by the United States Government:

  • The policy of assassination against United States citizens was set up by a communist President.
  • The United States Constitution grants citizens the right of due process which could be null and void in a warzone.
  • Syria is not a warzone of the United States as we have not declared war on Syria.
  • Anwar al-Awlaki is alleged to have been organizing terrorist attacks on the United States.  This information was based solely on the intelligence of the CIA, which has been wrong so many times in the past.
  • Anwar al-Awlaki’s only supposed crime, besides being an anti-American bigot, was motivating the Fort Hood Shooter.  However, I have not seen any evidence that he personally told the Fort Hood shooter to do what he did, merely provided anti-American sentiment.
  • Anwar al-Awlaki was murdered by a Predator drone.
  • The drone apparently recognized him via facial recognition software.  What may be amusing is if al-Awlaki shows up alive later as facial recognition software is less accurate than actual eye-witness identification.  There is no software that is superior to good human common sense.  Just be aware that if you are traveling abroad and look similar to a wanted person on the government’s hit list, then you are going to be targeted and possibly killed.  Wrong place, wrong time I guess.
  • Our government now has secret prisons, authorized torture, and execution without due process of American citizens.  Tyrants in other countries have done less.
  • Anwar al-Awlaki was qualified to run for President as he was a natural born citizen.  Meanwhile, the man who ordered him killed has a questionable background.

And people wonder why I am anti-government…
