I suppose it's great that another terrorist is dead.
But this doesn't solve anything or make it any better - as always, someone else will take his place and his death will only push others to follow in his footsteps.
It's like mopping up a bleeding wound - great, you've cleaned up a mess. But it's still bleeding, still damaged. No one is addressing the issue(s) of *why* this people are becoming terrorists. It's all great and fine to kill them as they show up, but it doesn't change whatever ideologies these people follow, or address whatever perceived (be it real or false) wrongs these people feel they have suffered at someone's hands.
That's what needs fixing.

Lets just say he is guilty (for the sake of argument)... so every other USA citizen criminal that is "thought to be" guilty shouldn't have a trial? He is labeled "terrorist suspect", suspect doesn't mean guilty.
He also dined at the pentagon after 9/11. Last time I checked most terrorist suspects don't get that privileged.
I honestly don't see the point of having a courtroom in the middle of a battlefield. You fight a war. You pick a side. You win or you lose.
Sometimes it is that simple.

Yes I see the difference - my opinion was based on history and yours was based on specualtion that the CIA is *currently* funding and support Al-Queda. I do not believe it is, *currently*.
You have no evidence that they are *currently* doing that - only your conspiracy theories. In the past, yes, they funded the Afghan freedom fighters against the Russians and even later. But now? I don't think so. If that was even remotely true, it would have been proven with documents, evidence, vids, etc.edit on 30-9-2011 by noonebutme because: (no reason given)

I can't believe anyone would find this to be good news.
Is it good that American Citizens can be executed without a trial of any kind or without actually being charged with a crime? Does not sound like good news to me.

.Another "fake al-CIA-duh terrorist" "dead". My note to the MSM: Yawn.
Note to everyone else - Frightening real life scenario wake up call:
Another post referenced this, namely, what if the POTUS/ congress/corporation decides, (hypothetically, of course), that You, John and Jane Q. Public, are domestic terrorists. And what, pray tell, is the definition of a domestic terrorist?
[Quote from source]
How hard is it to qualify as an “extreme right-wing radical domestic terrorist?” Not as hard as you might think…
“Right-wing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly anti-government, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”
This is exactly how Obama’s DHS now defines “extreme right-wing radical domestic terrorist,” and this is officially the primary concern of Obama’s DHS. They are far less concerned with Al Qaeda, open borders, terror and drug trafficking, Iranian or North Korean nukes. It is the average American that they fear most!
So what is stopping him/them/ whoever from ordering you,the law abiding, patriotic American citizens who love your country and constitution, to be assassinated on American soil????
Unfortunately, not a lot.
These are just a warm up exercises meant to condition the American citizens to say "oh thank goodness they are keeping us safe!" from Whatever particular flavor of boogie-man of the week they are currently serving up.
Guess what? The bad guys are whoever our corporate owned puppets..( whoops! I meant federal government).... DECIDES they are.
The US now "publicly" orders and carries out assassinations, and most of us don't even blink an eyelash.
