15. Abdulrahman's father was part of al Queda, and al Queda has killed children in its attacks.

But Abdulrahman was not killed on purpose.

"Then, on Oct. 14, a missile apparently intended for an Egyptian Qaeda operative, Ibrahim al-Banna, hit a modest outdoor eating place in Shabwa. The intelligence was bad: Mr. Banna was not there, and among about a dozen men killed was the young Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, who had no connection to terrorism and would never have been deliberately targeted."

OTOH, eight children were on the planes that were deliberately flown into the WTC.

It's always tragic when children are killed in the conflicts of adults, but al-Awaki put his son in danger when he involved him with other terrorists.
