American Civil Liberties Union Wets Panties Over 'Anwar Al-Awlaki' Killing. - U.S. airstrikes in Yemen today killed Anwar Al-Aulaqi, an American citizen who has never been charged with any crime.
May all his 72 virgins look like Barney Frank
 ACLU Deputy Legal Director Jameel Jaffer said, “The targeted killing program violates both U.S. and international law. As we’ve seen today, this is a program under which American citizens far from any battlefield can be executed by their own government without judicial process, and on the basis of standards and evidence that are kept secret not just from the public but from the courts. The government’s authority to use lethal force against its own citizens should be limited to circumstances in which the threat to life is concrete, specific and imminent. It is a mistake to invest the President — any President — with the unreviewable power to kill any American whom he deems to present a threat to the country.”

 ACLU National Security Project Litigation Director Ben Wizner said, “Outside the theater of war, the use of lethal force is lawful only as a last resort to counter an imminent threat of deadly attack. Based on the administration’s public statements, the program that the President has authorized is far more sweeping. If the Constitution means anything, it surely means that the President does not have unreviewable authority to summarily execute any American whom he concludes is an enemy of the state.” 



  1. Oh boohoo, we killed a terrorist who committed treason and who got a lot of innocent people killed. The traditional penalty for treason is death, we should be killing ALL Americans who join the jihad team! Why is John Walker Lindh still alive?

  2. John Walker Lindh should be given a fair trial and then stood in front a of a firing squad.

  3. Al-Alwaki is another argument against anchor babies and a worse argument against PC gubmint.

    The U.S. ended up having to get this vermin using expensive drones in Yemen (what deals were cut?) when the local cops or the FBI could have picked him in Denver or Falls Church.

  4. Ya give one miserable son of a bitch a one way ride to their just rewatd via a hell fire missile and the Lefty's lose control of their collective bladder. F*** 'em.
