While I completely agree that killing a sixteen year old from ANY nation is deeply wrong, on so, so many levels, I think it is important to also
realise that when a father elects to make a choice about his path in life, it is for his sons, daughters, wife and entire extended family to choose
wether they walk it with him, or curse him for a fool and turn away.
In such serious circumstances as these, what with Anwar being an actual AQ member, it was suicidally stupid for his son to go looking for him. That
said, if there were innocents around the target, in my opinion the shot should never have been taken. I have heard US officials call these drone
attacks "surgical strikes" before now, which quite frankly is the most utterly crass description which could ever be applied.
Note to the US government, JSOC, the CIA, and all other parties fighting the war on terror. If you want to call something a surgical strike, then
kill only the man you are aiming for.
