Update

A quick update on a post too old to be updated there: On April 8 I posted about the order to kill Anwar al-Awlaki. I noted at the time that I had sent a version of the post to the White House, edited to fit within the character limit imposed by the email system there. When I sent it, I checked the box saying I wanted a reply.

I just wanted to note that it's now two and a-half weeks later and I have received no reply either by mail or email, not even a pro forma, automated, "thanks for your comment" reply. Make of that what you will.

The deafening silence surrounding this is sickening. The opening line of the article on this by Jeremy Scahill was:
"There has been almost universal silence among Congressional Democrats on the Obama administration's recently revealed decision to authorize the assassination of a US citizen, Anwar al-Awlaki."

"Hey [shrug] that's old news [shrug] and we gotta support the president [fist to desk] and besides, with a name like that, he ain't really American, is he [wink]?"

Apart from Kucinich, that is. I've written my state's congressional delegation and have yet to hear back.
