    Umm, it happened 2 years ago and I will respectfully suggest that if you Google "Abdulrahman al-Awlaki" you will find a good deal of commentary about it (specifically including a fair amount of "outrage").

    How many, "Where's the outrage" threads can we have?

    its seems like more then half of political discussion is around the perceived hypocrisy of outrage or lack of it

    "if my side did this....."

    I don't know, but if there are not enough to my liking, then I will be outraged.

    I still want to know why no one answered presidential candidate Bob Dole when he asked "Where's the outrage?" about his opponent Bill Clinton.

    It certainly didn't show up at the voting booths. But that's America for you.

    Maybe we should just go back and use the B-52's and kill everyone below. That way a human would do the killing and some would be happy despite the many more innocent that are killed doing it the old way

    Carpet bombing? I say duels. 20 paces at dawn. Old school.

    Last I heard, we are not at war with Yemen. By the way, a 5000 LB bomb takes everybody out around the target. A little unrecognized fact that has the muzzies in a bit of a snit. Uness your target is out in a field all by himself taking a piss, there will be collateral damage -again in a country we are not at war with.

    The only outrage we will now exhibit is if fits our agenda or fits personally. Too many people will just ignore anything, if it doesn't affect them. I read many comments on this site alone that will attest to that.
    A black man kills a black child, the race mongers could not care less, black on white crime will receive a smattering of outrage, but white or white hispanic on black crime will create an earth shattering national response, triggered by the race mongers.

    Some in Yemen are at war with us.

    This isn't football so killing them on the practice field is fine with me.

    A B-52 carries 70,000 pounds of bombs and most of the air to surface missiles we use on drones is the Hellfire which is in the hundred pound class.

    A fair comparison is the disregard for the rule of law and due process rights by the Obama administration that is evident in both the GZ case and this event.

    Once you join the wrong side of the battlefield against our nation, the only right you deserve is your last rights.

    Clever phrasing.

    You would think this was a kid on his way to high school in Oklahoma when a Drone gunned him down based on how the thread was set up.

    "Good God Almighty . . . where's the outrage?!?!" :dead:

    If GWB was still POTUS they Leftists would try to hang him. But, since it's their commie... all is good, just another casualty of nondescript war, on whomever they choose to target. Either way that guy was at the wrong place at the wrong time.

    You are 100% accurate.

    Conversely, If Romney were President, they Righties would just call this another casualty of a nondescript war, on whomever they choose to target.

    Like sand through the hourglass.

    drone crashed in Panama City today. No injuries. just a matter of time though before a drone crash kills civilians here in US. What then? Cost of doing business?
