Obama Game of Drones

Footage of Anwar Al-awlaki in October 2001 discussing the deaths of innocent civilians in the U.S. and Middle East.
Awlaki, a U.S. citizen born in New Mexico, was assassinated by a U.S. drone strike in Yemen on September 30, 2011. Al-awlaki was on the CIA’s hit list, signed off by the Obama Administration, for 17 months prior to his assassination. No evidence was ever presented against him in court, his citizenship was never revoked, and he was given no opportunity to exercise his constitutionally-guaranteed rights to due process and a fair trial.
Nota: Não fiz uma busca sobre as actividades e opiniões expressas de Anwar Al-awlaki depois desta aparição. Ainda assim é a execução extra-judicial de um cidadão americano que estamos a falar. #change.
