2. Anwar al-Awlakiwas an Yemeni-American Awlaki was an imam. He was described by Barack Obama as the leader of the Arabian peninsula Awlaki was the first U.S. citizen to be added to the list of persons approved for targeted killing for the CIA.

4. In Yemen

5. People believed thatAwlaki had lots of attempts to attack the U.S. PresidentObama said that Awlaki had been planning to murder innocent Americans and was also responsible of some death of many Yemen citizens. He said that Awlaki had directed attempts to blow up U.S. planes and had repeatedly called on individuals in the United States and around the world to kill innocent men, women, and children.
Why did Awlaki get killed?
6. There's another problem
Anwar al-Awlaki is dead but..
7. The problem is that the U.S. killed one of its citizen with no trial and noindictment.This might be the firsttime the U.S. killed one of its citizen somewhere else in the world without any do processes at all. The white House is debating if this was legal or illegal.
Lets watch this video!

Do you think it was illegal,
or legal?
9. Why didthe U.S kill Awlaki with no trial and no indictment?
