AL AWLAKI'S FAMILY REUNION

Ken Berwitz

If the latest information is correct, anwar al-awlaki is having a family reunion.  And I couldn't be happier.

Excerpted from an article at msnbc.com:

ADEN  The son of slain U.S.-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki was killed in an airstrike along with six other al-Qaida militants, including the media chief of the terror group's Yemeni branch, tribal elders said Saturday.

 

The elders in the southeastern province of Shabwa where the strike took place identified the son as 21-year-old Abdul-Rahman al-Awlaki. There was no official confirmation of his death from Yemeni authorities.

 

The elders, who spoke Saturday on condition of anonymity because they feared reprisals, said that five of al-Awlaki's clan were among the seven people killed in the missile attack.

 

The older al-Awlaki, a Muslim preacher and savvy Internet operator who became a powerful al-Qaida recruiting tool, was killed Sept. 30, also in a U.S. drone attack.

 

Earlier, Yemeni officials said Ibrahim al-Bana, the media chief for al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, was among those killed.

 

A Yemeni official described al-Bana as one of the most dangerous militants on their wanted list.

If this is true (it's hard to say - who are "the elders"?), what great news it is.  And how terrific that the al awlakis are being joined by a guest like ibrahim al-bana.  I'm sure they'll have lots and lots to talk about.

Let me finish by congratulating, and thanking, President Obama for continuing to allow drone attacks such as these, without which the al awlakis, al bana, samir khan and assorted other subhuman sacks of excrement would still be vertical. 

I usually am highly critical of Mr. Obama.  But when he gets it right he gets it right.  And in this case, he gets it right.  Dead center.
