It disturbs me, and it should disturb every American, that I told them exactly where bin Laden was in 2003, and they let him live another eight years.

President Obama just delivered a near hour-long speech on drone strikes and counterterrorism policy. There was a lot there; he announced, among other things, new steps the administration is taking to close Guantanamo Bay, changes in policies regarding drone strikes, and a more lenient policy for the transfer of Guantanamo detainees. He defended the strike that killed Anwar al-Awlaki and the practice of drone strikes in general, but also acknowledged their limitations.

reuters:

The brother of al Qaeda’s second-in-command, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike, said Washington’s use of the remote-controlled weapons is inhumane and makes a nonsense of its claims to champion human rights.
U.S. officials said on Tuesday that Libyan-born al Qaeda operative Abu Yahya al-Libi was killed by a drone strike in Pakistan, in what was described as a major blow to the militant group.
The attack is likely to fuel an increasingly fierce debate about the legality and morality of the drones, which have become one of the chief U.S. weapons against al Qaeda but which opponents say stretch the definition of the legitimate use of lethal force.

My life is in your hands, Mr. President. If you accept the demands, I live; if you don’t accept the demands, then I die.
American al-Qaeda hostage Warren Weinstein • Speaking in a video directed towards President Obama, in which the terror group demands a halt to airstrikes in multiple countries and al-Qaeda and Taliban prisoner releases. ”It’s important you accept the demands and act quickly and don’t delay,” Weinstein claims. “There’ll be no benefit in delaying, it will just make things more difficult for me.” It seems likely that Weinstein didn’t write these words.
