When I read the story I hope that he had a chance to look up in the sky and got a look at a Predator launching a missile.

His father was a Fulbright scholar. He conducted a prayer service for muslims in the US Capitol in 2002. He was convicted twice for soliciting prostitutes. He got a $20000. scholarship under a false SS number.

I wonder if liberals are still clinging to their belief that poverty breeds terrorists.

Well, there are millions ready willing and able to take his place

Willing, yes. Able, that remains to be seen.

Once you get deep into the bench the players get worse and worse.

The defence ministry statement said only that he died "along with some of his companions".

Translation: At least one of his favorite goats from his harem met its demise along with him...

Wikipedia is very interesting, indeed.

In a video posted to the internet in November 2010, al-Awlaki called for Muslims around the world to kill Americans “without hesitation”, and overthrow Arab leaders.[42]

Funny how that preceded the "arab spring."

Now that's good news.

F' al Awlaki, his family, his friends, followers, people who lent him money and any one he assisted or inspired. May they all meet the same end.

“if they could just find Adam Gadan”

This is the guy whose fate I’m most interested in following, if not having a say in. Right up there with Loughner, even though Loughner seems to be just a lone nut white punk on dope.

I still object to using the term “home-grown terrorist”. We don’t produce these people as though a natural by-product of our 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. They’re al Qaeda-grown. They’re not (US) home grown.

Great news if true. But I wouldn’t give a lot of credibility to anything coming from the Yemeni government.
