    So the American government is raising the profile of this random terrorist so that people will have heard of him when they kill him.

    @danthew: I get where you`re coming from, and partly agree, but also consider this. Americans are so overly judged by being ignorant of what is not only going on in the world, but what is also going on on their own soil. Now when when something is made available in an attempt to educate us on a possibly interesting and informative issue, we`re going to be criticized for that too?

    Jeez, we just can`t win.

    I`m sorry but her accent was a bit distracting. I truly do find Australian and New Zealand accents ugly....not trying to be mean, I just really don`t think they are easy on the ears.

    @rogue_knight, jees, what did I do?

    @wickedsngr, it`s not so much the education I`m cynical about, it`s the whole "Osama 2.0" thing. It`s almost as if they are rebranding this guy, "Anwar Al-Awlaki" isn`t exactly catchy to a western ear. Plus they are hugely playing off the (understandable) fixation America had on Bin Laden, almost to the point where it`s like they don`t expect you to understand why he`s a bad guy without comparing him to Bin Laden.

    I`m sure someone else has probably pointed this out but when he states that "Jihad is as American as apple pie, and as British as afternoon tea" he means `not very` presumably.

    Apple Pie is English and Afternoon tea was only a perculiarly English Upper Class pasttime who comprised a tiny percentage of the British population.

    Sorry to be pedantic but it just goes to show, you can`t be too careful.

    That was actually unbiased and informative... I actually have nothing to add... though I`d like to see the context of that American pie quote.

    @DeutschDude9, I think even Anonymous know when not to antagonise someone. It`d be like poking a rabid dog with a stick. Sure it`d annoy the dog, but the retaliation would be vicious and quite possibly deadly.

    I was thinking more taking down their recruiting sites like they did to WBC, maybe even taking them over and redirecting the new accounts to the FBI which was tried before.

    I don`t care how much this video is just a tool to get people hyped for another kill. Ten minutes ago I would have read news of his death with passing interest. Now I`ll feel a slightly greater sense of relief over it.
    Let him burn.

    @Suicism
    Because a lot of the recent (last seven days or so) of submissions have been videos from their channel.
    If an IABer likes the videos, they will go to their YouTube channel and watch the other videos from HungryBeast - there`s no need for all these submissions =/

    AntiCool88 is trolling. Blatantly. Trolling is a subtle art. Also: haters gonna hate.
