Latest Anwar Al-Awlaki Items
The latest edition of al Qaeda's online, English-language magazine includes an article offering an Islamic justification for extremists to steal from non-Muslims to finance their activities. Analysts say this shows that the U.S. and its allies are succeeding in drying up sources of terrorist funding.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Tuesday urged Yemen to step up cooperation with the United States as she made an unannounced visit here to shore up and repair damaged ties with a fragile and problematic ally that is fast becoming the main focus of U.S. counterterrorism efforts.
What began with a bang ended with a whimper. The new Defense Authorization bill contains provisions barring the president from spending any money to bring terrorist detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to the United States, or to release them to foreign countries unless they meet a rigorous security threshold. President Obama reluctantly signed the bill this week, saying he will "work with the Congress to seek repeal of these restrictions." Given the shift in power in the new Congress, it's likely his vision for closing the Guantanamo terrorist detention facility is in ashes.

A federal judge has thrown out a lawsuit aimed at preventing the United States from targeting U.S.-born anti-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki for death.
The American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Constitutional Rights have brought suit against the Obama administration for ordering the targeted killing of American-born al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki, who is believed to be holed up in Yemen. These groups argue that the president doesn't have the legal authority to order the assassination of American citizens. That's right, so in order for the kill order to stand, Awlaki should be stripped of his citizenship.
