Assassinating Awlaki

The Day America Died

by PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS

October 04, 2011

http://www.counterpunch.org/

In our book, The Tyranny of Good Intentions, Lawrence Stratton and I showed that [>] long before 9/11 US law had ceased to be a shield of the people and had been turned into a weapon in the hands of the government.

The event known as 9/11 was used to raise the executive branch above the law. As long as the President sanctions an illegal act, executive branch employees are no longer accountable to the law that prohibits the illegal act.

On the president’s authority, the executive branch can violate US laws against spying on Americans without warrants, indefinite detention, and torture and suffer no conseque

Obama asserts that the US Constitution notwithstanding, he has the authority to assassinate US citizens, who he deems to be a “threat,” without due process of law

On September 30 Obama used this asserted new power of the president and had two American citizens, Anwar Awlaki and Samir Khan murdered.

NOTE!

Khan was a wacky character associated with Inspire Magazine and does not readily come to mind as a serious threat.

Wadah Khanfar, Al-Jazeera and the triumph of televised propaganda

26 September 2011

http://www.voltairenet.org/Wadah-Khanfa ... ra-and-the

Al-Jazeera was conceived by two French-Israeli personalities, the David and Jean Frydman brothers, after the assassination of their friend Yitzhak Rabin.

According to David, the goal was to create a medium where Israelis and Arabs could discuss freely, exchange arguments and get to know each other, considering this was prevented by the war situation thereby frustrating any peace prospect.

For the creation of the channel, the Frydman brothers benefited from a combination of circumstances: the Orbit Saudi company had reached an agreement with the BBC to set up a news broadcast in Arabic.

But the political demands posed by the absolutist Saudi monarchy quickly proved incompatible with the professional independence of British journalists. The agreement was terminated and the majority of Arabic BBC journalists found themselves out on the street.

They were then recruited to launch Al-Jazeera.
