He dead, da-wi?
Several of these “dead” terrorists have reappeared.
Why believe either Yemenis or this administration?
Neither has credibility??
Say hello to mo and osama when you get to hell!
What will be going on behind the scenes by Obama’s left hand over the weekend while the news shows pump Obama’s head up like a weather baloon? I.e., Obama’s right hand.
Are Obama’s poll numbers with US muslims high enough to sustain this?
Will this strike piss off more of Obama’s base who hate the US?
He’s referred to as “ US born” but was he just an anchor baby or did he have established ties to this country? Where was he born and did he grow up here?
Are you referring to Obama or Al-Awlaki?
He was born in Las Cruces, New Mexico
“Al-Awlaki’s parents are from Yemen. His father, Nasser al-Aulaqi, was a Fulbright Scholar. who earned a master’s degree in agricultural economics at New Mexico State University in 1971, received a doctorate at the University of Nebraska, and worked at the University of Minnesota from 1975 to 1977.
“Anwar was seven years old when his family returned to Yemen in 1978. He then lived in Yemen for 11 years, and studied at Azal Modern School.
Al-Awlaki returned to Colorado in 1991 to attend college. He earned a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Colorado State University (1994), where he was President of the Muslim Student Association.”(Wiki)
if true then good but does FOX have to cover this every minute, who decides who now gets a burial?
The pentagon is being very quiet.
Did this admin know because they are quiet so was this a CIA mission ?
Why no DNA or photo’s?
So many differences between Bin Laden and this nut and no one has a clue what our foreign policy is .
To th eleft they say Bush for war crimes but their man can order airstrikes on an American citizen.
Bush got done over Gitmo but airstrikes is OK.
Gitmo would give us info, killing right off the bat does not
Just heard on the news, he was born in New Mexico and went back to Yemen. He went to several US colleges.
I still object to media using the term home-grown terrorist. We dont produce these people as though a natural by-product or outcropping of our own society, they have voluntarily transcended boundaries which help to define what it means to be a home-grown American hero or just an average US citizen. They are Jihadi-grown. Theyre al Qaeda-grown.
Adam Gadahn is an al Qaeda-grown terrorist and so is the Ft. Hood shooter. Awlaki was al Qaeda-grown. Theyre not (US) home grown, they’re just disgruntled foreigners.
We should all have a BBQ party and drink lots of beer!
Just think of the possibilities....he could have run for POTUS!

I agree. I’ve never cared for it either. They’re always looking for some kind of ‘cute’ ‘catchy’ phrase.
And the media seems to apply it to both people who were born here, and people who moved here and became U.S. citizens.
Until someone comes up with a ‘catchier’ label, they’ll keep using it.
whether the sob is dead or not, sounds good to me.
Last week it was the leader of the Mexican cartel leader's wife who came into the US to have a child born, and claim US citizenship.
this is national suicide.
GOODBYE YOU POS! I’ll bet there are some of those 70 virginians like Thomas Jefferson just waiting to kick your diaper headed a&&.
