The radical Muslim cleric tied to suspects in both the Fort Hood shooting and failed Christmas Day bombing has become a key terror target, with a top member of Congress calling him "terrorist number one" and officials confirming he has been added to a list that would allow U.S. operatives to capture or kill him for his role with Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
Rep. Jane Harman, D-Calif., called Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen believed to be in Yemen, "terrorist number one" at an intelligence conference Tuesday.
"He is very much in the sights of the Yemenis, with us helping them," said Harman,
chairwoman of the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Intelligence.
Now, here's my question. The U.S. is trying to kill him but if we happen to capture him, we'll read him his rights and give him a civilian trial. Is that about right?
