U.S. Aims Drone Strike at Al Awlaki

President Obama nearly took out two top terrorist leaders in one week: A U.S. drone strike in Yemen on Thursday nearly killed radical American-born cleric Anwar al Awlaki, it was revealed Friday, but he appears to have survived. It was the first U.S. drone strike in Yemen since 2002. Despite the survival of al Awlaki, who inspired the Fort Hood shooter and the Detroit "underwear bomber," two-mid level al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula operatives died in the attack.
