President Obama hails Al-Awlaki killing as “major blow” and “further proof al-Qaeda and its affiliates will find no safe haven in the world.”

EARLIER: BBC News reports President Obama personally ordered CIA directed drone strike killing U.S. born al-Qaeda cleric.

House Homeland Security Committee Chairman King: “The killing of al-Awlaki is a tremendous tribute to President Obama and the men and women of our intelligence community.”

ABC News: US had been targeting Awlaki for months.

Huge development, symbolically and substantively, in the war on terror. And it sends another signal to America's enemies: there's nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.
