Here’s a message for anyone who might convert to Islam…..don’t join Al-Qaeda. White British Muslims who had joined the terrorist organization were killed by a CIA drone in the town of Datta Khel in Pakistan the UK’s Daily Telegraph reports.
The two men, ages 48 and 25, went by the names Abu Bakr and Mansoor Ahmed. These are the first White British Muslim converts to be killed by coalition forces in this area. From the Telegraph report:
They had entered the country last year and travelled to the town in North Waziristan in the lawless tribal belt bordering Afghanistan, to join al-Qaeda, the report on Channel Four News said.
What’s the old saying? If you play with fire you get burned? Or, if you mess with the bull you get the horns? This of course brings to mind the debate going on here about whether or not the United States has the right to kill Anwar al-Awlaki who is the leader of Al-Qaeda in Yemen but was born in the United States.
Personally, as demonstrated by these British born Muslims, if you forfeit your loyalty then all bets are off. They were on the way to join Al-Qaeda, they essentially had ceased to be British citizens. Same thing with al-Awlaki, he’s no longer an American in my book.
The CIA drone strikes on the British born White Muslims have not been confirmed by the CIA because of where the attacks took place.
