This 2008 image taken from Fox News video shows Samir Khan in Charlotte, N.C. U.S-born Samir Khan, who edited the slick Jihadi Internet magazine, and cleric Anwar al-Awlaki were killed Friday, Sept. 30, 2011 in an air strike on their convoy in Yemen by a joint CIA-U.S. military operation, according to counterterrorism officials. A federal judge said Friday, July 19, 2013, that she finds “disconcerting” the Obama administration’s position that courts have no role in a lawsuit over the 2011 drone-strike killings of three U.S. citizens in Yemen, including an al-Qaida cleric and Khan.
