Mr. President, Please Don't Kill This Terrorist
Marc Thiessen, Washington Post
The United States is on the hunt for Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri, the al-Qaeda master bombmaker behind the just-thwarted plot to bring down a U.S.-bound jetliner. If previous patterns hold, at some point in the coming weeks or months a drone launched from a secret CIA base will take al-Asiri out - and we will celebrate another "success" in what was once called the war on terror.
Mr. President, don’t do it.
TAGGED: United States, Barack Obama, Yemen, AQAP, 2012, Ibrahim al-Asiri, Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri
