Please unbow your heads and do not observe a moment of silence. Rather, raise your fangs to the sky, in a wolf howl, and celebrate with a full-throated growling of Boom Shaka Awlaki Boom!
It is with a great lack of sadness that I announce the passing of Anwar al-Awlaki, pictured in funky turbaned glory below:
- al-Awlaki in happier days (لا الله الا الله والعولقي في الجحيم) Boom Shaka Awlaki Boom!
Why should I be revel so victoriously over this and not over any of the other weekly Predator attacks? Simple: Awlaki was dangerous due to both his fluent command of English and his media sav-va-try. He has even been described as the: “bin Laden of the Internet.”

Was he not an American? Are we not treading in dangerous legal waters by targeting one of our own, a countryman?
No problem. This situation could have been remedied by immediately revoking his citizenship once he was found to be in contempt of the country and in support of sedition. Certainly as an adult, he was an American in name only. . .
Senor Awlaki lived in San Diego during the 90s. I have driven past his mosque, across the 8 from Lake Murray (in La Mesa), many times:
Two of the 9/11 hijackers (Nawaf Al-Hazmi and Khalid Almihdhar) regularly attended the mosque in 2000, and Al-Awlaki had many closed-door meetings with them, which led investigators to believe Al-Awlaki knew about the 9/11 attacks in advance.

He even got arrested twice for soliciting hookers (not anglers, but the presumably female type.)
From his MySpace page: Although he hesitated to shake hands with women, Al-Awlaki patronized prostitutes. He was arrested in San Diego in August 1996 and in April 1997 for soliciting prostitutes.
In the first instance, he pled guilty to a lesser charge on condition of entering an AIDS education program, and paying $400 in fines and restitution. The second time, he pled guilty to soliciting a prostitute, and was sentenced to three years’ probation, fined $240, and ordered to perform 12 days of community service.
- Argyle JSOC Operator
Samir Khan (one of the publishers of the Al Qaida rag Inspire and author of the article: “Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom“) and a senior bomb-maker, Ibrahim al-Asiri, were also killed in the blast.
Fox News reported that: “According to a senior U.S. official, the operation was carried out by Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), under the direction of the CIA.”

Who, ask you, are these steely-eyed JSOC’ers?
Operators from the JSOC community wear special feet-coverings, and rely on highly charged music, which they play prior to a mission. Here is one such recording, and another.
Furthermore, JSOC’ers are a group of warriors with a deep affinity for argyle, hence their festive socks. This revelation may be classified, but in the interest of avoiding blue-on-blue fratricide (friendly fire), I feel compelled to illustrate JSOC operators in their feral warriorness. To prevent you from accidentally targeting them on your Saturday afternoon straffing runs at your local supermarket.
- Boo hoo AQAP: Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula
More from Fox: AQAP (Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula) has lost its ideological leader, which is a huge blow, a former intelligence official who has tracked al-Awlaki for years.
Since I am still active-duty and should not, probably not ever, consider thinking about, saying aloud, or actually criticizing Flag Officers; let me say that this General deserves a Nobel Prize for his noble thinking about the Fort Hood shooter (Major Hasan) who was inspired by al-Alwaki:
Army Chief of Staff Gen. George Casey said it’s important for the country not to get caught up in speculation about Hasan’s Muslim faith, and he has instructed his commanders to be on the lookout for anti-Muslim reaction to the killings at the Texas post.
- Diversity at the Pentagon
He says focusing on the Islamic roots of the suspected shooter could “heighten the backlash” against all Muslims in the military.
Casey says diversity in the military “gives us strength.”
Cough, really? Cough, chortle, spit. Yes, sir. (Diversity gives us the appearance of variety, unity gives us strength.)
