Lethal Presidency article raises intriguing issue


My initial impressions of the recent Esquire piece ("Lethal Presidency of Barack Obama") on one of the major current forms of terror being employed by the US Secret State (which it adopted when it adopted Obama as its new front-man), is that the article is intended to reinforce the notion that we are at war with terrorists, and to dare us to realize that the "war on terror" is actually a reign of terror by mentioning facts that don't fit into the cover story.  

The major incongruity mentioned in the article, which is the death of Anwar al-Awlaki's 16-year old son in a drone attack which was supposedly intended for al-Qaeda leader Ibrahim al-Banna (see this article), who was supposedly killed in the attack (although considering the typical condition of the remains, they could say that they belonged to just about anybody), is intriguing. One possibility is that the killing al-Awlaki's son in this manner was intended to motivate teen-aged American Muslims to join one of the "terrorist groups" run by the FBI, in order to provide "evidence" of a terrorist threat.  Congress hasn't investigated this incident because our real government hasn't provided any scripts for an "investigation."
