Obama orders assassination of US citizen
8 April 2010
For the first time in history, an American president has officially ordered the assassination of a US citizen.
President Barack Obama has approved the “targeted killing” of Anwar al-Awlaki, a US-born Muslim cleric who is reported to be in hiding in Yemen. No substantial evidence has been brought to bear against Awlaki, 38, who is accused of terrorism, and he will be afforded no legal recourse against the death sentence.
A US civil rights group released crime scene photos on Wednesday of the body of a radical black Muslim leader who was shot 21 times during an FBI raid: here.
The recent California federal district court ruling that the Bush administration’s warrantless wiretapping violated a 1978 surveillance law was the first significant judicial rebuke to post-9/11 government eavesdropping. For that reason alone, Judge Vaughn Walker’s damages award to the Muslim charity Al-Haramain and its attorneys, targets of unlawful spying in 2004, is worthy of celebration. But the ruling won’t change our current deeply troubling surveillance regime. In that sense, it is a timely reminder of unfinished business: here.
I’m struck by contrasting public views on the US drone warfare program, which I discussed in a previous column. In the United States, where the public has long been aware of the program, drone strikes have received increased critical attention in recent months because of the disclosure that an American citizen, Anwar al-Awlaki, has been targeted for attack. Al-Awlaki, a radical cleric now based in Yemen, is alleged to have helped al-Qaeda organize terrorist plots against the US: here.
Obama administration officials are pushing to strengthen a federal law that requires phone and broadband carriers to allow their networks to be wiretapped: here.
