In an interview on the Michael Smerconish Radio Show this afternoon – simulcast on MSNBC - President Obama wouldn’t give any details about the Awlaki killing.
Host Smerconish asked President Obama if he gave that order to kill the Yemeni cleric.
“You know, I can’t talk about operational details, Michael,” the president said. “This is something that we had been working with the Yemeni government on for quite some time. There’s been significant cooperation at the intelligence levels with a lot of countries in the region.”
The president said: “We are very pleased that Mr. Awlaki is no longer in a position to directly threaten the United States homeland as well as our allies around the world.”
