ABC NEWS: American Jihadi Samir Khan Killed With Awlaki.
U.S. officials say Jihadi Samir Khan was killed in the same strike that eliminated Anwar Awlaki in Yemen Sept. 30, 2011. Khan who edited al Qaeda’s English-language magazine, and had urged Muslims to mount deadly attacks on U.S. targets, was killed in the same CIA drone strike that eliminated Anwar Awlaki in Yemen U.S. officials said.
A federal appeals court on Monday released a once-secret memo that provides the Obama administration’s legal justification for using drones to kill American terror suspects abroad. The memo, released by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan as the result of a lawsuit, pertained to the targeted killing of American-born radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki. The document lays out the legal justification for ordering the strike, without the involvement of a court. “High-level government officials have concluded … [al-Awlaki] is a leader of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) whose activities in Yemen pose a ‘continued and imminent threat’ of violence to United States persons and interests,” the memo said.
Portions of the 41-page, July 2010 memo are blacked out. To back up its findings, the memo said: “facts presented to us indicate that [al-Awlaki] has been involved, through his operational and leadership roles in AQAP, in an abortive attack within the United States and continued to plot attacks intended to kill Americans.” This appears to be a reference to the failed 2009 attack by the so-called “underwear bomber,” and the attempt to blow up cargo jets with printer bombs the following year. In both cases, the bombs were built by Ibrahim al-Asiri, and the memo provides no clues as to al-Awlaki’s direct role in the plots. The memo said the authority to use lethal force abroad may apply in appropriate circumstances to a U.S. citizen who is part of the forces of an enemy organization. It said the killing was justified as long as it was carried out in accord with applicable laws of war.
