Anwar al-Awlaki Killed

The guy responsible for inspiring Nidal Malik Hasan to go on a shooting rampage at Fort Hood, TX, killing 14 and injuring 32 is now, himself dead. Anwar al-Awlaki was also credited with being the inspiration for Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the underwear bomber who attempted to detonate a bomb on a plane during its descent into Detroit. The Times Square bomber, Faisal Shahzad also gave credit to al-Awlaki for motivating him to kill infidels.

Via the BBC:
The US-born radical Islamist cleric and suspected al-Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki has been killed in Yemen, the country's defence ministry reported.

US administration officials confirmed the reports, according to US media.

Awlaki, of Yemeni descent, has been on the run in Yemen since December 2007.

The US had named him a "specially designated global terrorist" for his alleged role in a number of attacks and US President Barack Obama is said to have personally ordered his killing.

The defence ministry statement said only that he died "along with some of his companions".

It gave no further details of his death.

But tribal sources told AFP news agency Awlaki was killed in an air strike in the eastern Marib province, said to be an al-Qaeda stronghold.

It is not clear whether he was killed by Yemeni forces or a US drone strike.
This is a big deal in many respects. Awlaki was a US citizen and was very fluent in both English and Arabic. He also was credited with taking internet jihad to a new level.

Two Islamic Terrorists Apprehended, Released after Crossing into US from Mexico

Any rational person who knows anything about homeland security has to admit that our open border to the south is a perfect opportunity for Islamic terrorists to blend in with Mexican nationals. There is now proof in the form of two men who were apprehended by US Border agents. It's important to point out that because far more people get through than get caught, these two terrorists are not isolated cases. They represent a sample so there are likely many more where they came from. Meanwhile, our Federal Government is doing all it can to not only ignore its responsibility when it comes to securing the border but preventing states like Arizona from doing it.

Via PJM:
Two Bangladeshis who were caught by Customs and Border Protection illegally crossing the border in June 2010 admitted under questioning that they were members of a designated terrorist organization that signed on to a fatwa by Osama bin Laden pledging to wage war against Americans.

But amazingly, after one of the men requested asylum, he was released on bond. And now one Homeland Security official tells me, concerning the released terror operative, “We don’t have the slightest idea where he is now.”

The two men, Muhammad Nazmul Hasan and Mirza Muhammad Saifuddin, were intercepted near Naco, Arizona, not long after they had crossed the border on June 25, 2010. During their interrogation, one of the men admitted that they were members of Harakat-ul-Jihad-i-Islami Bangladesh (HuJI-B), which was designated a terrorist organization by the United States in February 2008. Earlier this month the group claimed responsibility for a bombing a courthouse in New Delhi. That attack killed 11 and wounded at least 45 others.
Well, these terrorists were apprehended at about the same time Operation Fast and Furious was kicking into high gear as well.

From the Declaration of Independence:
He (King George) has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
I think our border with Mexico qualifies as one of our 'frontiers' and I think terrorists qualify as 'savages.'

Video: Sign Showing Obama in Diaper Brings Libs out of Woodwork

If you put up a sign in your yard that showed a picture of Barack Obama in a diaper with words that said, 'change me, I stink,' it could just be the perfect bait to attract liberals. That's exactly what happened in Louisiana when a man put up such a sign. He even got a paid a visit by Mayor Ray Nagin, who didn't get very far. Perhaps more disturbing was reaction of a City Council member, who perfectly enunciated what the left believes. Susan Guidry admitted that she would use whatever law she could to have the sign removed. Ah, the left. When you disagree with them, they'll attempt to use whatever they can to shut you down.

The signs have created such a firestorm of controversy, though, that police came to the scene-- called in by City Council Member Susan Guidry. She represents the district where the home is located. Guidry said she was concerned about public safety and was trying to figure out if the sign was even legal. She also said she spoke to Reily, but didn't get far.

"We have to determine that there is a zoning law that prohibits perhaps the size of the sign, perhaps the way that it's erected, that it is leaning over onto public property," Guidry said. "Whatever we can use, we will, but of course, we do have to balance that with First Amendment rights."

Yet, the signs remain in place, fanning the flames of a free speech debate on both sides of the fence.
I smell a cheese and mousetrap metaphor.

Personally, I love how these folks make the leap that a photo of a man in a diaper is racist. Only in the liberal mind....
