The Sun newspaper have introduced readers to the new Al-Qaeda acting-chief about whom we should all live in a state of near perpetual fear. Let's hear it for the new leader of Al-Qaeda, everyone! Let's send him congratulations cards in the spirit of fraternal charity. Gosh! That must have been one rigorous interview! Just address it to Anwar al-Awlaki, Yemen and it should get there. Remember to be afraid, now.
Incredibly, and I don't think you could make this up if you tried, The Daily Mail reported that Mr Anwar al-Awlaki dined at the Pentagon in the weeks after the 9/11 attacks.
'An Al Qaeda leader who is one of the most wanted men in the world was invited for lunch at the Pentagon in the aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks, a new report has claimed. New documents have been obtained which apparently detail how Anwar Al-Awlaki, the first American on the CIA's kill or capture list, rubbed shoulders with high-ranking military personnel just months after the atrocities. Fox News claim to have acquired documents that state that Awlaki was taken to the U.S. Department of Defense's headquarters as part of the military's outreach program to the Muslim community in the immediate aftermath of the terrorist attacks.'
Apparently, according to the Mail report, he was a 'moderate Muslim community leader' back in those days. Wow! I wonder what happened between the meeting at the Pentagon with high level officials and Mr Anwar Al-Awlaki receiving his Al Qaeda membership card? Gosh! Talk about bad luck, eh? For a moment there, the Pentagon had a future public enemy #2, now #1 in their hot little hands! If only the Pentagon had invited him to lunch after he had become radicalised, joined the CIA-founded 'Al Qaeda' network and become the new public enemy #1!
Don't worry, though, Obama will sort this guy out good and proper. Oh yes! You can run, Mr Anwar Al-Awlaki, but you can't hide! Mr Obama's going to hunt you down from the Oval Office and send his crack team of seals to find you, kill you, bury you at sea and save us from the likes of you! He might have to invade Yemen, in yet another war, in order to get you, but I just know we're going to hunt you down! While we look for you, I expect we'll install a more Western friendly regime in Yemen, but, on the whole, this is my message to you Mr Al-Awlaki! Be afraid, Mr Al-Awlaki! Be very afraid! It is, of course,vitally important that for the time being, while he is still alive, we should be very afraid too. I'm never stepping on that Volks Electric Railway again, until I know that Al-Awlaki has been killed by seals, whether those seals are on land, or in the sea!
