MSNBC: It's true, Obama has secret kill list.


MSNBC, usually Obama biggest cheerleader, has confirm a dark rumor about his administration.

Note: Anwar al-Awlaki dined at the Pentagon with US officials within months of 911. He was also reported dead a few years ago in the media. Critics of the handling of al-Awlaki worry that his killing is a precedent that Obama would like to expand on. Much of the evidence suggests that al-Awlaki was a CIA asset.

From MSNBC…

American militants like Anwar al-Awlaki are placed on a kill or capture list by a secretive panel of senior government officials, which then informs the president of its decisions, according to officials.

There is no public record of the operations or decisions of the panel, which is a subset of the White House’s National Security Council, several current and former officials said. Neither is there any law establishing its existence or setting out the rules by which it is supposed to operate.

The panel was behind the decision to add Awlaki, a U.S.-born militant preacher with alleged al Qaeda connections, to the target list. He was killed by a CIA drone strike in Yemen late last month.
