Yesterday, ABC News reported that al Qaeda recruiter and Fort Hood jihadist spiritual advisor Anwar al Awlaki was asked by Nidal Hasan if it was okay to kill American soldiers.

After mocking U.S. intelligence in an interview with al Jazeera, Reuters is reporting early this morning that Awlaki has been killed in a military strike in Yemen:

A radical Muslim preacher linked by U.S. intelligence to a gunman who killed 13 people at a U.S. Army base is believed to have died in a Yemen airstrike on al Qaeda militants, a security official said on Thursday.

“Anwar al Awlaki is suspected to be dead (in the air raid),” said the Yemeni official, who asked not to be identified. Yemen said 30 militants were killed in the strike in the eastern province of Shabwa.

He counseled the 9/11 jihadists, hailed Hasan as a “hero” last month, and has been on the lam since 2002.

The question isn’t whether it was right to kill him.

The question is: What took so damned long?

***

Side question: Are the soldiers involved in the military strike going to be court-martialed like those 3 Navy SEALs? Because Awlaki sustained much more than a punch to the stomach.
