The Left’s Rage Over ‘Assassination’ Of US Citizens Begins

From Big Peace by Jason Bradley -
I wasn’t quick enough this morning to head this off. I knew it was coming and that it would only be a matter of time before the Left reacted to Anwar al-Awlaki’s death.

From the heart and mind of Glenn Greenwald.

It was first reported in January of last year that the Obama administration had compiled a hit list of American citizens whom the President had ordered assassinated without any due process, and one of those Americans was Anwar al-Awlaki. No effort was made to indict him for any crimes (despite a report last October that the Obama administration was “considering” indicting him). Despite substantial doubt among Yemen experts about whether he even has any operational role in Al Qaeda, no evidence (as opposed to unverified government accusations) was presented of his guilt.
Grenwald, if nothing else, has been consistent in his displeasures and disagreement over US policy to track down and kill radicalized terrorists who happen to be US citizens. I’ve commented before on Greenwald’s assumptions.
