U.S. Predator Drone Attacks but Fails in Strike on Anwar Awlaki

HT: Wall Street Journal

The United States, working close with Yemeni officials, nearly killed al-Qaida terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki yesterday afternoon during several Predator drone strikes in Jahwa:
The U.S. launched a drone strike in Yemen on Thursday aimed at killing Anwar al-Awlaki, but he evaded the missile[s], Yemeni and U.S. officials said.
Taking out the world's most dangerous terrorist four days after eliminating al-Qaida leader/founder Osama bin Laden would have severely riled the Jihadist organization and given the United States another victory in the War on Terror just this week.

Awlaki, who is responsible for numerous terrorist attacks on the United States since early 2009, can run, but he can't hide from us.

What say you?


  1. After the success of Seal Team Six, the military still wants to count on Predator Drones? Go figure, huh?


  2. We would have had the support of Yemen's government. However, I think we wanted to eliminate this traitorous dirtbag without question.
