Today, one day before President Obama’s scheduled speech on national security, Attorney General Eric Holder has disclosed that four American citizens have been killed in drone strikes in Pakistan and Yemen. Three of the names were familiar to those who have been following the administration’s campaign of drone strikes, but the last name comes as news to most Americans — and maybe even to the FBI, which still lists Jude Mohammad on its wanted list.

The New York Times says Mohammad was most likely killed in a drone strike in Pakistan in November 2011, but some have noted that he still appears as wanted on the FBI’s website.

So, is this a case of poor website maintenance, or yet another indication that the right hand in Washington has no idea what the left hand is doing?

Some early research on Mohammad does little to inspire confidence in the war on terror. The Guardian newspaper did a lengthy piece on Mohammad and his arrest and release by Pakistani authorities several years ago. He was later sought by the FBI as being a member of a suspected terror cell based in Raleigh, N.C.

Mohammad’s wanted poster explains that “Mohammad is at large” and sought on a 2009 warrant “for conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists and conspiracy to murder, kidnap, maim, and injure persons in a foreign country.”

    If a reporter will dare to write this story, then our executive branch will learn about it and take action.

    Possible that removing him at the time would have led to lowered ability to gather intel, such as was announcing the death of Bin Laden. Perhaps they learned from their mistakes, however unlikely.

    Let’s be fair to the FBI… I’m sure they didn’t know about it until they heard it on TV… 0:o)

    Maybe scandal #6? Do we have evidence that the scumbag was actually killed, or only the word of the gubmint? I wonder if Bin Ladin is on the list, too.

      At this point I wouldn’t be suprised if this was scandal #6, I really wouldn’t. At this point I refuse to believe anything that comes out of this administrations mouths.

      Let’s make a list of this administrations major scandals:
      Fast and Furious
      AP scandal
      Benghazigate
      IRS scandal
      Justice department investigating FOX news/media spying

      Honorable mentions but not quite scandals:
      Voter intimidation
      Failure to investigate Tamerlan Tsarnaev properly(how many more have slipped through the cracks?)

      Where in the world is Obama when this shit is happening?
      Yup, this is the most trustworthy and transparent administration ever/sarcasm.
