Luke Rudkowski attempts to question Obama’s Senior Campaign Advisor, Robert Gibbs on the Obama administration’s appeal to keep the indefinite detention provision of the NDAA. With no response about the NDAA, Luke later asks Robert Gibbs on how President Obama will defend having a secret kill list in the debates. Gibbs gives a standard response on the administration doing what it has to do to handle the threat of Alqaeda. Sierra Adamson then follows up by questioning if there is justification for killings such as Anwar al-Awlaki’s 16 year old son who was an American citizen, to which Gibbs lays the blame of his death on Anwar al-Awlaki not being a responsible father.
Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, the son of Anwar al-Awlaki, was a 16 year old American citizen born in Denver. He was killed in October 2011 in Yemen by drone strikes that were separate to those that killed his father. From TIME
