Al Qaeda Terrorist Cleric Anwar al-Awlaki Dead … Confirmed, the ‘FACEBOOK FRIEND FROM HELL’ Killed in Yemen

 

Al Qaeda terrorist cleric Anwar al-Awlaki won’t be down for breakfast. According to confirmed Yemen and US officials,  the American born cleric al-Awlaki has been killed in Yemen.  Anwar al-Awlaki has been linked to many terrorist attacks on the United States, including the Fort Hood Massacre,  the attempted Christmas Day underwear bombing and the Times Square bomb plot. Al-Awlaki was killed about 5 miles from the Yemeni town of Khashef, east of the capital city of Sanaa.

The American-born radical cleric al-Qaeda Anwar al-Awlaki, a major jihadist figure who U.S. officials say inspired several terror plots against the U.S., was killed overnight in Yemen, U.S. and Yemeni officials told ABC News.

A senior U.S. official told ABC News the U.S. had been tracking al-Awlaki for some time and had just been waiting for the perfect moment to strike. A Yemeni official said al-Awlaki was killed along with an unknown number of al Qaeda confederates, possibly in a drone strike.

As we like to say … “Good riddance to bad rubbish”. The folks at Wizbang second the motion. As reported at the Jawa Report, it was first reported that Yemeni forces were responsible for the killing of the American born traitor terrorist al-Awlaki; however, it is looking more like a US drone attack.

Born in Las Cruces, New Mexico, al-Awlaki lived in the United State until the age of seven when his family returned to Yemen. Al-Awlaki returned to the United States in 1991 for college and remained until 2002.

It was during that time that as an imam in California and Virginia, al-Awlaki preached to and interacted with three of the September 11 hijackers, according to the 9/11 Commission Report. He publicly condemned the attack afterward.

UPDATE I: al-Qaida Internet recruiting just took a hit … Anwar al-Awlaki DEAD!

Anwar al-Awlaki, American-born, a gifted Muslim preacher and savvy Internet operator, became a powerful al-Qaida tool for recruiting in the West, its English-speaking voice spreading a terrorist credo via a blog, social media posts and email exchanges.

UPDATE II: Jenifer Griffin  from FOX News that it was a US missile that took him out; however, it is not confirmed what platform the missile came from, i.e. drone, aircraft, etc.

UPDATE III: WHAT??? CBS calls al-Qaida  … al Qaeda’s franchise in Yemen. Does CBS News think that  al-Qaida is like McDonald’s or Burger King … a franchise, ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!  NEWSFLASH TO CBS … AL QAEDA IS A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION!!!

Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S.-born radical Islamic preacher who rose to the highest level of al Qaeda’s franchise in Yemen, has been killed.

      “WHAT??? CBS calls al-Qaida … al Qaeda’s franchise in Yemen.”

      Actually, “franchise” as it relates to Al Qaeda has been used frequently. Any band of terrorists no matter where they are can call themselves Al Qaeda, even though there’s little or no collaboration with whomever are considered the Al Queda hierarchy or what’s left of it.

      When he pays he respects to Obama in hell, they both will still be laughing with the Devil.

      There is no tolerance for Extreme Muslim TERRORISTS here in the great United States of A.M.E.R.I.C.A, Baby.

      Rock on—every time I read these reports (and even as a Christian) I still feel a certain sense of glee.

      Our planet is much better off without these inhumane Terrorists, and should I be critisized for welcoming the news…so be it!

      9/11= NEVER FORGET
