Another One Bites The Dust: More Dead Terrorists, Yipee!
Great news from the war against terror today. Several top al Qaeda leaders were supposedly sent to virgin-turbin land in the country of Yemen. The 30 or so were taken out in two attacks by US pilot-less drones. This is an unexpected gift for victims of the Fort Hood shooting earlier this year. One of those who perished in the attacks was Anwar al Awkali, the American imam who preached to the Fort Hood killer, US. Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan.
The White House did not deny the claim that US drones were the instruments of death in Yemen. I assume any news outside of Afghanistan success will be downplayed. This is an overseas contingency operation that must be orchestrated and controlled. The US can not be made to appear strong or war-like since that would offend those who want to kill Americans.
When the script don’t fit, the White House must acquit. You know, war is peace and peace is war.
