Anwar al-Awlaki was linked to the failed bombing of a US-bound plane in December 2009 [Muslm.net]
Yemen's defence ministry has reported that al-Qaeda-linked cleric Anwar al-Awlaki has been killed along with several other fighters.
A statement released to the media on Friday said the dual US-Yemeni citizen was hunted down by Yemeni forces but did not elaborate on the circumstances of his death.
"The terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki has been killed along with some of his companions," said a statement sent by text message to journalists.
Tribal sources told the AFP news agency that Awlaki was killed early on Friday in an air strike that hit two vehicles in Marib province, an al-Qaeda stronghold in eastern Yemen.
Awlaki had been implicated in a botched attempt to bomb a US-bound plane in 2009 and was wanted dead or alive by the US.
In January 2011, Yemen sentenced Awlaki in absentia to 10 years in jail in connection with the killing of a French engineer.
The court in Sanaa, the Yemeni capital, had accused al-Awlaki - believed to have been hiding in southern Yemen at the time - of motivating the crime.

Whose death would be more good news for you, some random anti-Islamic kafir redneck from Baton Rouge, or a person like Donald Rumsfeld or Tony Blair or George W. Bush Jr.?
The thing is these people in power have gone overboard in their media campaign and they are finding it exceedingly hard to sustain their own lies. So they have to fabricate one final lie to put an end to all the previous lies - the lie of death. It gives a sense of accomplishment, closure and conclusiveness to the jahil who is on THEIR side, but would still be disillusioned by the illusion of 'democracy' and hold his leaders accountable for not doing something about the issue. And when they attribute all these titles, it just makes that job of answering to the make-believe accountability easier. Basically, they're living behind multiple curtains of lies.
Democracy is an illusion and the current world order is a bigger farce than communism.

If this is true, it is what he wanted. May Allah give him what he was striving for.

Well, I think it could very well be time for me to re-listen to his Life of the Prophet series again.

- The edge of reality....
The US government sanctions these assassinations because dead mean can't defend themselves when preposterous allegations are made against them. Meanwhile the real terrorist aka US Government still have the blood of hundreds of thousands of Japanese (Hiroshima/Nagasaki anyone?), Vietnamese, Palestinians, Iraqis, Afghans etc on their murderous hands. Truly disgusting!

Yemeni U.S.-wanted al-Qaida cleric Awlaki is alive: brother
English.news.cn 2011-09-30 18:18:02 FeedbackPrintRSS
SANAA, Sep. 30 (Xinhua) --The most-wanted U.S.-born Yemeni al- Qaida cleric, Anwar al-Awlaki, is alive and was not in the targeted convoy hit by a unmanned U.S. drone Friday, one of his brothers told Xinhua by phone.
In a brief text message to journalist earlier in the day, the Yemeni defense ministry said that Anwar and a number of his followers were killed by Yemeni forces in Shabwa province in southeastern Yemen.
Al-Awlaki, said to be leader of Yemen-based al-Qaida branch, was also pronounced killed by Yemeni troops late last year, but the Yemeni government later admitted he was still alive.

The claim, however, has been denied by one of his brothers. Yemen's Defence Ministry, in a brief text message to journalists, quoted a security official as saying that the prominent leader of the Yemen-based Al-Qaeda wing was killed along with a number of his supporters in Yemen's southeastern Shabwa province.
Anwar al-Awlaki was wanted by the US government for his links to the attempted bombing of an airliner bound for the US and his involvement in planning attacks against the country. Tribal sources confirmed that "a US unmanned drone fired a missile on two cars in Masila area, located between the northeastern restive provinces of Marib and al-Jouf, killing all onboard", the report said.
"No confirmed information that the wanted Sheikh Anwar al-Awlaki was in the convoy," said a tribal official from Shabwa province, the ancestral homeland of al-Awlaki. A security official said that the US air raid was done based on intelligence tip-off from "the regional Saudi intelligence office in Yemen".
Meanwhile, Ahmed al-Awlaki, one of Anwar al-Awlaki's brothers who is wanted by the Yemeni authorities for hiding Anwar, claimed over phone that "Anwar is alive and was not in the targeted convoy hit by the US unmanned warplane early Friday". Al-Awlaki, who reportedly escaped a number of US air raids, had been pronounced killed by Yemeni troops late last year. But the Yemeni government later admitted he was still alive.
Anwar al-Awlaki was put on the US "capture or kill" list last year for alleged linking to a botched attempt to blow up a US-bound plane in December 2009, for which Al-Qaeda in Yemen later claimed responsibility.

Officials confirm death in al-Jawf of dual Yemeni-American citizen accused by US of spreading al-Qaeda's message.
Yemen's defence ministry has reported that Anwar al-Awlaki, a well-known and controversial imam with alleged ties to al-Qaeda, was killed along with four others.
A government statement released to the media on Friday said Awlaki was hunted down by Yemeni forces, but did not elaborate on the circumstances of his death. He was wanted by both the US and Yemen.
"The terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki has been killed along with some of his companions," the statement sent by text message to journalists said.
The 40-year-old US-born Awlaki, a dual Yemeni-American citizen, was a father of five.
Tribal sources told the AFP news agency that Awlaki was killed early on Friday in an air raid that hit two vehicles travelling through an al-Qaeda stronghold in central Yemen.
Government officials say he was targeted 8km from the town of Khashef in the province of al-Jawf, just 140km from Sanaa, the capital.
"I can confirm he's dead," a senior White House official told the Reuters news agency.
Past narrow escapes
The news came amid unrest in the impoverished Arabian Peninsula country, where protesters have staged protests since February demanding the resignation of Ali Abdullah Saleh, the country's president since 1978.
The aircraft that carried out the deadly attack was probably American, according to tribal sources, who said US aircraft had been patrolling the skies over Marib, a central Yemeni province, for the past several days.
The tribal sources also said Awlaki had relocated from the nearby Shabwa region about three weeks ago.
A US drone aircraft targeted but missed Alwaki in May, and the Yemeni defence ministry had previously announced Awlaki's death late last year.
On December 24, the Yemeni government said he had been killed in an air attack, only to admit later that he was still alive.
"He has been a target of US drones at least three times," Hakim al-Masmari, editor-in-chief of the Yemeni Post, told Al Jazeera.
"The Yemeni government will face a lot of criticism, especially in the south, for allowing US drones to attack Yemeni civilians. But it will not be a blow to Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula from any perspective. We don't feel they will suffer, because [Awlaki] did not have any real role in [AQAP]."
US officials said Awlaki spread al-Qaeda's message via a blog, social-media posts and email exchanges.
"Mr Awlaki is a problem," John Brennan, Barack Obama's counterterrorism adviser, said in January 2010.
"He's clearly a part of Al-Qaeda in [the] Arabian Peninsula. He's not just a cleric."
Brennan directly accused Awlaki of having links with Major Nidal Hasan, who is suspected of shooting dead 13 people at Fort Hood military base in Texas in November 2009, and who is set to face trial in a military court on March 5, 2012.
Faisal Shahzad, a Pakistani-American who pleaded guilty to the May 2010 Times Square failed car-bombing attempt, told interrogators he was "inspired'' by Awlaki after making contact over the internet.
Awlaki may also have had contact with Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian student accused of trying to blow up a Detroit-bound Christmas Day aircraft in 2009, Brennan said.
The US president accused AQAP of arming and training Abdulmutallab and said the group was also responsible for the October 2010 parcel bomb plot that originated in Yemen.
Two parcels addressed to Jewish institutions in Chicago - containing the explosive PETN hidden in ink toner cartridges - were found to have been freighted from Sanaa on commercial airlines.
In July 2010, Obama's administration placed Awlaki on its list of terrorism supporters, freezing his financial assets and banning any transactions with him.
In a video posted on websites last May by AQAP, Awlaki urged Muslims serving in the US army to follow Hasan's example, and also defended Abdulmutallab.
Ameen al-Himyari, a Yemen analyst and professor at Qatar university, told Al Jazeera "terrorism is a phenomenon that needs to be studied" and that killing ring leaders would not solve the problem.
"We need to know what the reasons [for terrorism] are. Now we've killed the most wanted person in the world, [but] tomorrow we're going to have the most wanted person in the world. So what's the end? We need to find a solution," he said.
He also said Awlaki's death could make it hard for Saleh to cling to power.
"The regime is going to lose one of its scarecrows," he said. "Now if al-Qaeda is weakened in Yemen, what's he [Saleh] going to say for the West? Support me for what?"
The US and Saudi Arabia, Yemeni's neighbour to the north, have backed Saleh's government to fight al-Qaeda's cells in the country's south. But they have also been urging him to step down under a deal brokered by the six-nation Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC), which offers him as well as his family immunity from prosecution.
Saheh has backed out of the deal on three occasions and has said he will not step down if his former allies-turned-rivals are allowed to run in future elections.
