Words are far more dangerous than weapons. This article is about Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born Muslim cleric, in Yemen who was killed in a drone strike.
The mainstream news and news paper headlines only described him as a “radical” and only a few news outlets actually mentioned the fact that he was an American citizen. The fact that he’s an American only shows the lack of Due Process which is a right for all Americans regardless. Anwar al-Awlaki was a cleric and not a soldier. Regardless of what this man was accused of, there was no Due Process involved with his case (or lack there of).
There are consequences for such actions and usually those consequences trickle down to us, the common citizen and in the end it is “we” who pay the price in the form of new laws and the loss of certain liberties.
