Bachmann says “United States military and our intelligence community ahve demonctrated again why they are the best in the world.”

In Atlanta speech, Perry says Al-Awlaki killing “will be quite a serious setback” for al-Qaeda.

At Saint Anslem Instit. of Politics, Paul says drone strike not “a good way to deal with our problems.”

Paul: “He was born here, Al-Awlaki was born here, he is an American citizen. He was never tried or charged for any crimes. No one knows if he killed anybody. We know he might have been associated with the underwear bomber. But if the American people accept this blindly and casually that we now have an accepted practice of the president assassinating people who he thinks are bad guys, I think it’s sad.”
