The killing of Anwar al-Awlaki Friday is result of military operation by U.S. forces. And he was an American citizen. In fact with the greater availability of drones these assassination have increased four fold. What is interesting is that liberals, Obama included, didn’t like administrative detention and instead turned to assassination to avoid detention. Ironic, no?
Remember that Israel’s policy of assassination always drew pious condemnation from the world. Still does. And Israel is still not permitted to assassinate Hamas leaders.
Also the liberal High Court in Israel has gone so far as to hold soldiers accountable for killing terrorists rather than arresting them.
What an upside down world.
