Big news today - the death of Al Qaeda’s Anwar al-Awlaki, the radical American-born cleric who was a leading figure in al Qaeda’s affiliate in Yemen.
The Obama administration has confirmed al-Awlaki’s death, and NBC reports that it was a U.S. drone that killed him. Al-Awlaki is be the most prominent Al Qaeda figure to be killed since Osama bin Laden’s death
No president since George H.W. Bush has had more foreign-policy successes happen under his watch than President Obama:
- The death of bin Laden
- The dismantling of al Qaeda
- The ouster of Khaddafy
- The end of combat operations in Iraq
Yet when you look at polls and Obama’s approval rating, he’s getting almost no credit from the American public, a la Bush 41.
