The Awlaki connection
Turns out that the Boston bomber bros were influenced by the American-born Moslem terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki, whose death by drone strike prompted an ACLU suit against the US government. He was an American dedicated to killing as many of his fellow Americans as possible, since he also influenced the Times Square would-be bomber, the unsuccessful underwear bomber, and the Fort Hood killer of 13. That the US killed this guy before he could kill any more of us is a good argument for the drone strikes.
