While Americans were feeling relief and a shot of national pride this week after the death of Osama bin Laden, the counterterrorism community had already turned the page.
Al-Qaida has branches around the world and leaders in waiting.
Al-Qaida's future might very well center on a man who is most often described as a "homegrown extremist" and who had dethroned bin Laden as the No. 1 terrorism threat to the United States months before bin Laden took a bullet to the head in a compound in Pakistan on Sunday.
Anwar al-Awlaki has often been called the "bin Laden of the Internet" and "bin Laden 2.0." He's an American citizen, he just turned 40 and, like other 40-year-olds, he spends a lot of time online.
Anwar al-Awlaki was born in Las Cruces in 1971 to parents from Yemen who were in the United States for postgraduate work. His father was pursuing a master's degree in agricultural economics at New Mexico State University when al-Awlaki was born ...
Al-Awlaki was 7 when he moved with his family back to Yemen, but he returned to the West as a college freshman, enrolling at Colorado State University in Fort Collins as a civil engineering major. He stayed in the United States for most of his adult life, abandoning engineering for preaching. He worked as an imam in Denver, San Diego and Falls Church, Va., before moving to London in 2002 and then settling in Yemen in 2004 as a fully radicalized al-Qaida member.

He should be taken care of next.
So, Osama bin Laden is standing before God waiting to hear his punishment, when God gets a tap on the shoulder. Behind him stands 343 firefighters, 72 police officers, one K9 officer, 3,000 American citizens & over 5,000 soldiers. “Don’t worry, God, we got this!”

Yes, he is ‘one bad dude’. But according to those who don’t know or don’t want to know the difference, he is a Natural Born Citizen and eligible to become POTUS. Born in the USA is all they need!
“to finally & completely wipe-out any trace of feudal law from the soil of this country. To finally & formally constitutionally declare that we are a nation under the rule of natural law under the law of nations”
Now I am paraphrasing here, but the words & the doctrine set forth in the 14th Amendment, which is the doctrine set forth on July 4, 1776 & Sept 17, 1789, can be read in the Congressional Globe; 39th Congressional debates. It's a long read but well worth it.
Born here, uses his citizenship, gets a great education, then spits on us............as far as I am concerned, torch this animal.
No citizen parents? No citizenship.
“...he is a Natural Born Citizen and eligible to become POTUS.” The really sad thing is that he holds viewpoints that would inspire Democrats to vote for him.
The other sad thing is that this demonic was probably born in the same hospital I was born in.
