Editor Of Popular Internet Magazine Dead At 25

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/09/30

Samir Kahn, 25, was born in Saudi Arabia but grew up in New York. He later returned to the Middle East and began publishing the popular e-zine “Inspire” in an effort to educate English-speaking youth in world politics by speaking in their own vernacular.

I can’t do this. I can’t sanitize this dirtbag. Dude was a Mohammedan terrorist, a major cog in Al Qaeda, and at war with the US, and the rest of the civilized world for that matter. “Inspire” e-zine was a Mohammedan terrorist propaganda program intent on getting more young Americans and other young westerners to commit acts of Mohammedan terrorism against the West. Dude is buzzard food, and rightly so. The first attack missed him but the second one got him. Some other Mohammedan terrorist also bought it in the drone attacks, and his name was…

Anwar al Awlaki.

The American born Al Qaeda leader in Yemen. The man with ties to Mohammedan terrorist and mass murderer Nidal Hasan. The man who plotted the underwear bomb, the cargo plane “computer printer” bombs, and many other Mohammedan terrorist attacks and attempts. He got fried, along with several of his body guards. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

From Ed Morrissey:

Awlaki has a long history of terrorism against the US. At first considered a moderate cleric — the Bush administration invited him to the Pentagon as part of their outreach program after 9/11 — he became a suspect in the 9/11 attacks after at least three of the hijackers were traced to his mosque. Awlaki fled the US and eventually masterminded the Christmas Day underwear plot in 2009 as well as a later plot to destroy cargo airplanes bound for the US, and at least inspired the Fort Hood massacre and other so-called “lone wolf” attacks.

Assuming that Awlaki is really dead, though, this could be a bigger operational deal than getting bin Laden. Awlaki’s group, AQAP, was by far the most active internationally among AQ affiliates, and his intimate knowledge of the US made him a dangerous foe. His death won’t be the end of AQ’s attempts to create home-grown jihadis and infiltrators, but it will make that task a lot more difficult.

But RS McCain notes some serious sanitizing going on in the mainstream media. (Is anyone surprised?) The New York Times called Awlaki a “preacher,” then waited until paragraph 24, when a large percentage of people would have quit reading, to note the guy was Mohammedan. Couldn’t call him a “Muslim cleric” to start out, now, could they? CBS called him an alleged, suspected, reportedly terrorist. Ya think?

Professor Jacobson reports on all the usual Leftist suspects crying in their lattes over the fact the Al Qaeda leader who was at war with the US was killed instead of taken to court. He was at war, and violating the Geneva Convention in the process. He knew the risks in going to war with the US — you get dead — and did it anyway.

Michelle Malkin has this to say to the Leftist whiners and victimologists:

Obama’s far left flank will be unhappy if the mission to kill Awlaki, an American citizen, was successful. They will again decry such drone strikes against American citizens as unprecedented and lawless.

On this, I will come to Obama’s defense.

Awlaki’s membership and leadership in al Qaeda is undisputed.

We are at war.

The Supreme Court set the precedent for Obama’s and our military’s actions in 1942.

I’ve referred before to the Quirin precedent.

She goes on at great length to shred the Leftist whiners. You should read it.

On the death of Samir Khan, Michelle had this to say:

Whoa.

Fresh reports that a second U.S. jihadi was killed in the drone attack that allegedly took out al Qaeda spiritual guru Anwar al-Awlaki.

His name will be very familiar to longtime blog readers.

It’s Samir Khan[.]

I repeat: God bless our military.

***

My friends at top counterjihad blog The Jawa Report have been on Khan for years and helped shut down several of his jihad-inciting blogs after tracking him across the Internet (he went by the name “Inshallahshaheed”).

In 2007, I noted Khan’s death threats against the founder of The Jawa Report, who goes by the nom de blog Rusty Shackelford[.]

And Michelle goes on to provide a very good history lesson on the now dead dirtbag “Inspire” editor, including his manifesto. You should read it.

Good riddance to bad rubbish. Two Mohammedan terrorist leaders dead, many more to go.

Hot Air Headlines brings an NBC report that insane nutcase “Ron Paul condemns Awlaki Assassination”. This is why you will never be President, Ron Paul.

A Little About The Iowa Republican Debate

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/08/12

Once again, Mitt Romney was questioned about his RomneyCare. And once again, Mitt Romney tried to cover up his Big Government power-grab with the Tenth Amendment. Of course, Romney is using a Bell Curve dispensation of the Tenth Amendment, meaning a power-grab for Statists at the State level. But that’s not the meaning or goal behind the Tenth Amendment. The true goal and meaning of the Tenth Amendment is the Hyperbolic Curve dispensation. And once a Bell Curve “Tenther” gets into the Federal government, all pretenses at the Tenth Amendment will fall by the wayside. Because whatever issue will become too critical|severe|important to leave to the States. The Fed will “have to take power” away from the States.

The nut Ron Paul has decided that Iran should be able to build a nuclear arsenal, which would necessarily put Israel’s existence in jeopardy, to say nothing of millions of innocent lives in the Middle East.

Tim Pawlenty attacked Michele Bachmann but demurred in regard to Mitt Romney. But Michele Bachmann was ready and torched Tim Pawlenty. Hot Air has video of part of the Bachmann/T-Paw kerfuffle via Mediaite. (Since it is not a YouTube video, I cannot reproduce it here.) T-Paw tried that Leftist attack that Bachmann hasn’t succeeded in anything in Congress. By that metric, T-Paw would’ve told GEN Douglas MacArthur to go back to the States and retire after the Philippines fell to the far superior Japanese Army and Navy — despite the fact MacArthur’s extended delaying tactics were very crucial to the fledgling US war effort. And Bachmann hit back with T-Paw’s record of favoring Cap-and-Trade among other Big Government boondoggles while T-Paw was Governor. But Bachmann apparently left the stage during every commercial break. Bad form, that.

Newt Gingrich is asked about his Global Warming PSA with Nancy Pelosi. Newt’s response to someone asking a specific question about his record? He don’t want nobody hitting him with “gotcha” questions like that. Heaven forbid anyone ask him about his NY-23 endorsement of Leftist Republican DeDe Scazzafava, who in turn dropped out and endorsed the Democrat! Newt did hit Obama over the head on illegal immigration, so there’s that.

And there were some other also-rans on the stage as well.

My own take:
Bachmann won a few votes and lost a few votes, in effect, a wash.
T-Paw solidified his position as a second-tier candidate, to his detriment.
Ron Paul is still an absolute nut that cannot win the Republican nomination.
Mitt Romney is the strongest current squish candidate in a cycle where a strong Conservative is required.
If Newt Gingrich were a branding iron for the Rocking Circle R Ranch, he would have so many cold, dead spots that he would produce a smiley face instead of the Rocking Circle R brand.

With Perry, Palin, Guiliani on the outside possibly getting in, the Conservatives who were at the debate could quickly become also-rans and Romney could face a strong challenge from another strong squish.
