Like Father, Like Son: Murdering Awlaki’s 16-Year Old Son

We all know about the extrajudicial assassination of American citizen Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen. It was murder without due process, guaranteed him by the Fifth Amendment. Less people know about the same fate befalling his 16-year old son (I reported on it here, but details have since been clarified and expanded upon):

In the days before a CIA drone strike killed al-Qaeda operative Anwar al-Awlaki last month, his 16-year-old son ran away from the family home in Yemen’s capital of Sanaa to try to find him, relatives say. When he, too, was killed in a U.S. airstrike Friday, the Awlaki family decided to speak out for the first time since the attacks.

“To kill a teenager is just unbelievable, really, and they claim that he is an al-Qaeda militant. It’s nonsense,” said Nasser al-Awlaki, a former Yemeni agriculture minister who was Anwar al-Awlaki’s father and the boy’s grandfather, speaking in a phone interview from Sanaa on Monday. “They want to justify his killing, that’s all.”

The teenager, Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen who was born in Denver in 1995, and his 17-year-old Yemeni cousin were killed in a U.S. military strike that left nine people dead in southeastern Yemen.

Abdulrahman al-Awlaki’s family has set up a memorial Facebook page. It includes pictures like these:

The boy was killed by a US drone strike while he was out to dinner with his 17-year old cousin. Nine others died.

    1. Unfortunately, I don't think so. His core worshippers consider him infallible. Even if he causes his acolytes' stomachs to churn and brains to squirm they will defend his actions and vote to reelect him.

  1. Can't you just hear the wheezing asthmatic CIA or whatever guy advising that this young man in a revenge culture would surely be promoted to avenger of his father, and should thus be snuffed out the way the MacBeth's used to deal with their rivals the MacDuff's and the way the Sicilians do it in the Godfather.

    In honor of Lady MacDuff I cry "Murder!" HIllary Clinton looks particularly wild-eyed these days, like a Lady MacBeth if there ever was one.

    This boy's murder should bring someone to the Hague and soon.

  2. Ugly is the fall of a former Republic. Increasingly complex, de-humanized weapons will lead to further despotism. Central banking and the Federal Reserve fund global militarism. End the Fed! End the Wars!

  3. Has a Nobel Peace Prize ever been revoked? If this doesn't provoke such an action, I doubt anything will. Collateral damage = Terrorism…and fuels more of the same.

  4. While he was out to dinner? Are we sure this wasn't an Iranian plot, involving a daffy ex-used-car-salesman who didn't care if innocent bystanders died too?

    1. You are parroting the phony story the mainstream media fed you. There was no Iranian plot
      other then the made up set up to try to justify more war. That was as phony as the official 911 story.

  5. Please …. USG ….. kill everyone in Yemen as they may be connected to the 16 year old martyr and want revenge. Kill everyone who might no like me …… pleeeeze

  6. In his book, The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order (1997), Samuel Huntington wrote:

    "The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do." (Page 51)

    1. The Military has become a Mercenary apparatus, All volunteer like the French foreign legion and
      high pay compared to what the world war2 conscripted forces recieved or even the Korean era
      military pay, The Banking industry has more say on who and where we wage wars and they
      are the ones we need to rid ourselves of.. End the Fed. Go all state banks after the North Dakota
      model,. I got $68.00 per month when I was in the Navy in 1952 as an enlisted man. My Grandson
      is a Major in the Army and draws $85,000 per annum. He entered as a Captain with a PHD but
      with a big student loan. The military paid half of $80,000,00 so that was an incentive to join and
      so we can not blame the young people for joining,-, It all boils down to money,.

  7. Can somebody point out any meaningful moral difference between that bloodthirsty mass-murdering scumbag Obama and John Wayne Gacy or Ted Bundy or Jack the Ripper? If not, when do start awarding Nobel Peace Prizes posthumously to all the other deserving souls who've been cheated?
