“Anwar al-Awlaki”

Candidate Obama Is Not President Obama

While in the Senate and on the campaign trail during the 2008 presidential election, Barack Obama spoke eloquently about the need to restore due process and constitutional procedure for people targeted and captured by the U.S. government. He repeatedly called for the closure of Guantanamo Bay, and on his first day of office as President […]

How the Media First Reported Abdulrahman Al-awlaki’s Assassination

How was Abdulrahman’s targeted assassination initially reported in the media? Some quotes that sound very familiar with the usual semantics of all media coverage on drones and suspects: “Yemeni officials told reporters that nine members of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula were killed in the strike near the town of Azzan in southeastern Yemen, […]

Why We Can’t Ignore the Assassinations of Abdulrahman Al-awlaki and Anwar Al-awlaki

[youtube]http://youtu.be/0XCKyNkV8Mw[/youtube] The assassinations of Abdulrahman Al-awlaki and Anwar Al-awlaki, two U.S. citizens killed by U.S. drone strikes in Yemen, carry extremely dangerous implications for individual liberty, due process, and severe abuse of government power. We cannot let these incidents slip through the cracks.

Ron Paul: 16 Year Old American Citizen was Assassinated

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAOmgcu9FyU[/youtube] Please learn more about this issue if you haven’t already. This needs to be in the national spotlight and most certainly a campaign issue. It will be an issue if we spread the word and hold Obama and Congress’s feet to the fire.

An Open Letter to Rand Paul: Investigate the Killing of an American Teenager

Hello Senator Paul, My name is David Kretzmann. I am a 19 year old student at Berea College in Kentucky; I’ve lived in Kentucky since August of 2010. Today I urgently write you to investigate the death of Abdulrahman Al-awlaki. Within the past 45 days, three U.S. citizens have been killed at the hand of […]

You won’t see much media coverage of these anti-drone protests that took place in Yemen on November 2, 2011.

The Assassination of an American Teenager

Where do we draw the line? When do we stand up and say enough is enough? When will we see the world through the eyes of those whose lands we forcefully manipulate, invade, and occupy? On October 14, 2011, Abdulrahman Al-awlaki was killed by U.S. airstrikes in Yemen. Al-awlaki was a 16 year old American […]

Anwar al-Awlaki and the Constitution

I have been called unrealistic and “a little nuts” for suggesting that Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen, should have been charged and convicted before he was assassinated on September 30, 2011, in a U.S. drone attack in Yemen. It’s hardly an unrealistic position, considering that Awlaki has been on the CIA’s hit list since April 2010. […]
