Yemen Says Ft. Hood Murderer’s ‘Spiritual Advisor’ Possibly Killed in Raid

Due to the fact that the monstrously disastrous health care bill did indeed pass in the Senate this morning, we’re forced to look for our Christmas gifts elsewhere. And we may have been given one:

Yemen said 30 militants were killed in the strike in the eastern province of Shabwa.

Among those believed killed was Anwar al Awlaki, whom U.S. officials linked to the gunman who killed 13 people at the Fort Hood army base in Texas on November 5.

“Anwar al Awlaki is suspected to be dead (in the air raid),” said the Yemeni official, who asked not to be identified.

Awlaki has also been linked to three of the 9/11 hijackers. So if this news is true, good riddance and enjoy your 72 virgins — and may they all look like this.

Michelle Malkin asks if the soldiers involved in the strike are going to be court martialed like the three Navy SEALs.

No. If Awlaki is dead they won’t be. If a soldier knocks around a suspect during an arrest, he or she faces charges. If they shoot the suspect dead, that still appears to be okay. They do after all have the right to remain silent — emphasis on the “silent” part.
