Here’s a bonus in the smoking of Awlaki:
Underwear bomb maker also roasted Â in strike on al-Awlaki.Â Â Samir Khan, who was a top English-language propagandist, also went to the virgins.Â More onÂ this story.
They were foolishly overconfident to travel together.
While the usual suspects tie themselves in knots over the legalities of Al Awlakis assassination, for the Russians this modus operandi is nothing out of the ordinary.Â On orders from the Kremlin, Russian agents have been liquidating ChechenÂ terrorists abroad. Turkish investigators suspect that a Russian was also behind the latest killings, the recent murder of three Chechens in Istanbul. Some believe the operations are being planned from Berlin.
Somali pirates have learned their lessons and stir well clear of Russian ships.Â The only way forÂ Somali piratesÂ to live a bit longer â€“ avoidÂ RussianÂ vessels.
Â Awlaki Mosque Rats Defiant; blame America’s ‘legal framework’
He “was known for his interfaith outreach, civic engagement and tolerance in the Northern Virginia community”, said a statement from the mosque on Friday.
The mosque was adamant that it does not condone violence or extremism and said that the targeted killing of Al Awlaki raises questions about America’s legal framework. “We have rejected the use of extra-judicial assassination of any human being and especially an American citizen, which includes Al Awlaki,” the statement said.
Al Awlaki is not the only person associated with Dar Al Hijrah that has cast an unfavourable light on the mosque. Nidal Hassan Malik, the man behind the Fort Hood shooting, attended the mosque in 2001 when Al Awlaki preached there. It is alleged they kept in contact.
Awlaki had no religious qualifications and almost no religious education beyond his own patchy reading. This appears largely to have centred on the main extremist thinkers of recent decades â€“ such asÂ Sayyid QutbÂ and Abdullah Azzam â€“ rather than texts of established theological importance. During this period he met and developed a close relationship with two of the future 9/11 hijackers.
Though there has been much conjecture. and despite clear indications that the young preacher was known to many participants, no solid evidence has emerged linking Awlaki to the 9/11 plot. Â (half-baked leftist drivel is nauseating…)
