It fits poorly with the official US narrative that the man they assassinated today, Anwar Awlaki, was some high profile terror mastermind, but the US-born cleric was never even a member of al-Qaeda or its Yemeni affiliate. Indeed, he only ever appeared in one AQAP video, and that was as an interview guest.

But, but…that'll never fly.
If the USG cannot tie their kill to the old bad guys of al Qaeda or the new bad guys of Haqqani, the gullibles down in Bubbaville will never buy into the GOVERNMENT killing it's own citizens without due process….wait…lemme backup…that would require the Bubba and Bubbette to actually take the time to think about it, just a little – and I'm wasting my time thinking that is going to happen.
By the time they get thru building this guy up to fit the narrative, it's gonna turn out that he was OBL's righthand man and bestest buddy.
The American public has been so propagandized that the second they hear "Al-Qaeda" tacked onto anyone's name they immediately go into some sort of raving trance:
Awlaki was neither an Al-Qaeda member (although I'm sure he will be before it's all over with) nor was any evidence presented anywhere to charge him for a crime, nor was any any attempt made to bring him to justice for his (uncharged) crimes, real or imagined. He spoke out against the government and for that he had to die. Personally I believe one day we'll be teaching about him in schools with respect to giving your life for free speech- not for what he said, but for his right as an American citizen to say it.
So look out Rick Perry, look out Mitt Romney, look out Ron Paul, look out Michelle Bachmann, look out (presumably at some point) Sarah Palin, look out Rush Limbaugh, look out Michael Savage- and look out all of you who, like me, post regularly on these pages – you have all spoken out against Emperor Hussein and his flawed policies and for that you may all be required to forfeit your lives.
In a sense, sadly, we are all Awlaki.
WHO IS STUPID
The upper half of Empire USA all have two things in common: (1) They all have great jobs, terrific homes and collectively own all the wealth in our Empire. (2) They are the 51% voting majority and always favor empire building as it best protects their wealth.
Actually they have a third thing in common — their not stupid. And if we think their ignorant, gullible or stupid they we are the most stupid of all.

What? What? All are part of the war machinery with the exception of RP who merely speaks against wars plus government. But is not a big fish, the republicans and the ultra rich quickly took over the tea party movement for instance and made it their own.
Here we note an extrajudicial killing of an American citizen ordered by a Harvard law professor and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.
Currently, the law professor president has abbrogated international law and treaty, refused to investigate CIA members and Bush Administration officials engaged in what is clearly torture. And perhaps worse, expanded Bush's 'war of aggression', the supreme crime under international statute.
I fear for the Republic.
