Cleric Who Denounced Al Qeada Drone Striked
New York Times ^ | ROBERT F. WORTH, MARK MAZZETTI and SCOTT SHANE

Posted on 02/06/2013 6:40:39 PM PST by JohnPDuncan

Late last August, a 40-year-old cleric named Salem Ahmed bin Ali Jaber stood up to deliver a speech denouncing Al Qaeda in a village mosque in far eastern Yemen. It was a brave gesture by a father of seven who commanded great respect in the community, and it did not go unnoticed.

Two days later, three members of Al Qaeda came to the mosque in the tiny village of Khashamir after 9 p.m., saying they merely wanted to talk. Mr. Jaber agreed to meet them, bringing his cousin Waleed Abdullah, a police officer, for protection.

As the five men stood arguing by a cluster of palm trees, a volley of remotely operated American missiles shot down from the night sky and incinerated them all, along with a camel that was tied up nearby.

Obama doesn’t like it when you denounce Al Qaeda. They’re his peeps and much better than those damned bitter clingers in Crackerland.

Moral of the story: Don’t stand near terrorists. Ever.

Either they knew the cleric was there or they didn’t. Both are equally frightening.

He may have been, literally, the only muzzie to ever denounce Al Qaeda, but I must confess, the detail of the camel gave me a laugh.

Oh look, there were non-combatants incinerated at Hiroshima and Nagasaki! Pulllease.

Someone on TV today said that 3,000 civilians have been killed by Obama's drone strikes.

Imagine the outcry in the media if Bush had done that. Of course the Democrats say that more innocent civilians get killed when you invade a country so Obama is not as bad as Bush.

Maybe one day if we're really lucky a drone will incinerate the New York Times.

Those degenerate scumbags have been agitating for the destruction of the Republic and advocating the tyranny of the federal apparatus over the American Citizen for over 150 years.

I remember when libs protested Iraqi civilian deaths. Funny they can’t do it for Obama. Perhaps because he makes Clinton look like a right-winger.

This is John Brennan, director of the drone program. There was a longer video where he walks out of the meeting

He is insane and may well be the next director of the CIA.

“Volley of missiles”? It only takes one hellfire to whack a group of five ragheads...

2nd Moral of the Story, know when Obama is occupied on the Links, @ the Man Love Club, or blowing coke in his private office.
