LA Times ^ | Jan. 30, 2010 | Greg Miller

The CIA sequence for a Predator strike ends with a missile but begins with a memo. Usually no more than two or three pages long, it bears the name of a suspected terrorist, the latest intelligence on his activities, and a case for why he should be added to a list of people the agency is trying to kill.

Smoke him at will.

And the problem is?

What’s wrong with hunting down and killing a traitor?

Nice dress! The hat doesn’t match though. It’s a shade too dark.

The L.A.Times surreptitiously warns Anwar al Awlaki.

Okay, I have no problem with him being mirandized.

Just tape the miranda rights card to the nose cone of a Predator Missle and send it to him special delivery.

That ought to satisfy Zero.

Perhaps they will get him yet. Yemen is not exactly the largest country in the world.
