Al-Awlaki Killed. Again.

US Defense officials have confirmed that Anwar al-Awlaki, the US-born al Qaeda dirtbag, has been killed in Yemen.  The confirmation sets this particular instance of his death apart from others.   On previous occasions, the administration of Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh has claimed to have killed Awlaki in order to look like they were actually doing something to earn the millions the US has given them for counter terror, but he has always somehow managed to resurrect himself.  Apparently, this time he is really dead, and is discovering that the whole 72-virgins-in-exchange-for-death-in-jihad thing was just a horrible misunderstanding.
