Good Kill

September 30, 2011

Congratulations to all the military and intelligence personnel and assets that made the elimination of Anwar al-Awlaki possible.

Senior Al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki was killed in Yemen early Friday morning by a CIA-led U.S. drone strike, marking the highest-profile takedown of a terror leader since the raid on Usama bin Laden’s compound. 

Fox News has learned that two Predator drones hovering above al-Awlaki’s convoy fired the Hellfire missiles which killed the terror leader. According to a senior U.S. official, the operation was carried out by Joint Special Operations Command, under the direction of the CIA.

Yes, this is just one head of a many-headed Hydra.  Yes, someone will, most likely, step in to take his place.  Yes, someone will lionize him as a martyr, which will draw others to AQAP. 

To you who say those things I say, “fine, we will zero that dirtbag out, too.”
