He's more of a Bond type villain than he is a renegade cowboy. More like Ernst Blofeld with his white cats and cigarette holder.

I mean, not even W thought to flood the criminal population with automatic weapons. That takes an element of true evil genius beyond the capacity of most cowboys.

Waiting to see what happens if the air traffic controllers put even one tonail across the line. Cause this guy likes to use drones. A LOT.

Absolutely correct analysis Greg.

Obama's Nobel Peace Prize looks even more farcical now: Drone strikes up, Guantanamo still open, U.S. military support for Libyan overthrow, military tribunals for Al Qaeda being brought back. All things that neocons support, and Bush would have done.

On the domestic front: divisive rhetoric, class warfare, and the routine vilification of political opposition has been a constant under this Administration. Q.v., the healthcare industry, insurance companies, energy companies, Wall Street investors, business owners - all of them targeted and vilified routinely. And this week, Morgan Freeman claimed that those opposed to Obama are racists.

Raw politics: the folks who shut down Brooksley Born's efforts to regulate derivatives before they capsized the financial markets, Larry Summers and Paul Rubin, got top White House jobs with the Obama Administration. 30 of this White House's top appointees were all lobbyists - despite Obama's pledge to not allow them into his Administration. [Disclaimer: I'm a lobbyist and I think having lobbyists in an administration is essential.] And half a billion dollar Government grants to political allies (Solyndra) over the objections of regulatory staff were forced through and backfired on taxpayers.

Hope? Change?

None of the military maneuvers are bad now because the military cowboys can openly wear pink fringed chaps.

None of administration's immigrations policies can be racist because they are made by an African American.

And none of the nation's law enforcement decisions can be questioned because, well, because Obama said so...

I can't believe I have to explain this to everyone. Obama should not be questioned. Afterall, he's Obama.

Looters steal Gaddafi’s surface-to-air missiles
September 10th, 2011

According to Peter Bouckaert, emergencies director at Human Rights Watch, the weapons the looters want most, and take first, are the SAMs.
HRW estimates there are 20,000 surface-to-air missiles in Libya, and many of those are now missing. Some are recent Russian-made SAMs, capable of shooting down aircraft flying as high as 11,000 feet.

A recent secret White House meeting revealed that an estimated 20,000 portable, heat-seeking missiles appear to have vanished from an Army warehouse in Libya, reported.
The new revelations stoke ongoing fears that such weapons, which are light, relatively easy to use and have the capacity to take down a commercial airplane, could end up in the wrong hands as the Libyan war that ousted Muammar Qaddafi winds down.

“Matching up a terrorist with a shoulder-fired missile, that's our worst nightmare,” Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., told
Earlier this month, a senior U.S. official told the Associated Press that weapon proliferation was the “key concern

Iran accused of stealing Libyan surface to air missiles!

Welcome to the one-party USA. The Republicrats are firmly in control. Why don't we save some money and end this farce. Let's call off the election and just make Obama and Romney co-presidents.

Nobel Peace Prize...funny. Good Point. The Hopey Changey sham. Deafening silence indeed. Excellent post and comments. Obamafraud.

Apparently there were two other "most wanted" sh*tbags in that car along with the traitor.

We were aiming at the other guys, and he just happened to get caught in the hellfire missile explosion. So sad, too bad.

Honestly, I just can't get too worked up about this "assassination", particularly when so many high-level dirtbags get turned into high-velocity spatter along with the guy who's ACLU rights were violated.

Um, go Obama?!

Waterboarding a terrorist = bad
Blowing up a terrorist = good

Got it now...Just a little hypocritical

Greg, I'm not sure I can get behind you on the "assassinate a US citizen" rhetoric you're spinning. Anwar al-Awlaki was a self proclaimed Al Qaeda leader in Yemen, and swore to kill us infidels. Don’t know about the rest, but in my opinion, the minute he joined a terrorist organization that is anti-American, was the minute he became a sworn enemy of the state, and should be dealt with accordingly.
