Al-Qaida questions US commitment to “human rights”

Yeah, that’s what I said. You see, al-Qaida thinks it’s perfectly fine for their “forces” to attack US citizens, military and anyone else who will not submit to their perverted view of Islam. But if we kill a US citizen who is actively planning to attack the United States, we’re violating his human rights.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. From The Washington Post.

Al-Qaeda has also criticized the Obama administration for killing U.S. citizens, saying doing so “contradicts” American law.

“Where are what they keep talking about regarding freedom, justice, human rights and respect of freedoms?!” the statement says, according to a translation by SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors jihadist Web sites. …

In a statement, [Samir Khan’s] family said that, Khan was a “law-abiding citizen of the United States” and “was never implicated of any crime.”

“Was this style of execution the only solution?” the family said. “Why couldn’t there have been a capture and trial?”

There are questions concerning Anwar al-Awiaki’s authority within the al-Qaida organization in Yemen, but he has been tied to the failed Christmas Day underwear bomber and the Fort Hood attack. There’s been plenty of legal-types discussing the basis for the administrations decision to blow the guy away via super drone, but if someone has attacked you multiple times and continues to plan future attacks, I think he’s fair game – US citizen or not.

If you happen to be hanging out with that particular type of low life, don’t expect to be spared.

    That’s like the UN putting Libya on the Human Rights Council”,that has no credence & neither does Al-Qaida. Even tho it does give some cause for reflection.

    Islam being such a paragon of egalitarianism and tolerance,  should we really care about their propaganda?  Samir Khan was collateral damage in a target rich environment.  Next!

    I see it as preventing an enemy combatant from violating the human rights of countless US citizens.

    Oh yes, the AlQies are the “go to guys” for human rights.   How do they spell “human rights”?  I think it is “kill the infidel” (including other Muslims who disagree with us even slightly).

    The UN is irrelevant. Look out for Agenda 21 which our government is implementing little by little. Another off shoot from Agenda 21 is ICLEI, all coming to a town or city near you.

    We merely allowed him to praise Allah in person……… let Allah sort them out. Me thinks they will find out that Allah is not too happy with them. IMHO
