24. Obama Haters - please defend Anwar al-Awlaki!

This guy wanted to destroy America via war and terror. Not preserve Roe-v-Wade, not preserve our constitutional freedoms, not secure our electorial process, not defend the %99 against the %1, not promote gay equality, or do anything to make America better from our Progressive (or even Conservative) point of view.

He wanted to kill all of us AND he was entrenched on foreign soil with his fellow soldiers.

What was Obama's (or any president?) other option? Potentially sacrifice U.S. troops in a raid to bring this murderous bastard to justice alive?! Just because he's a US citizen? No member of Al-Qaeda is worth that.

If it was possible to arrest him alive at an airport, like Padilla, then do it. (btw Padilla's case, detention, etc. is whole other topic of discussion where I have problems with regard to how it's handled. So let's not get into that, because I probably agree with you) ...or surround his cabin and wait him out like we do those rural Right Wing Racist Gun-Monkeys every now and then. Unfortunately, those weren't options. I wish they were. We could have used al-Awlaki alive.

Plus, think about it this way...if we didn't bomb him in his entrenched position, then it sends a msg to al-Qaeda that as long as they have a US defector and Al-Qaeda member in close proximity, then they are safe from aerial bombing. Screw that!
