TERRORISTS: Article, headline showed bias

I was truly surprised and disappointed at the headline used for the Oct. 1 lead article. Saying that “U.S. drone executes 2 American citizens” is totally disingenuous.

Anwar al-Awlaki was undoubtedly the most dangerous terrorist in the world. Evidence indicates that his actions had led to the murder of many innocent individuals as well as our U.S. troops.

It really doesn’t matter whether al-Awlaki was Arab-born or U.S.-born, or for that matter was an alien from Mars. The world is now a far safer place with him in the ground, and our actions should be applauded, not derided.

Certainly a more positive article on U.S. military actions was available than this biased anti-war Associated press article. It would be more appropriate on the editorial page.
