Document: CENTCOM Response to Awlaki, AQAPINTELWIRE has obtained a Powerpoint on responses to al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, created by the U.S. Central Command about a month after President Obama authorized lethal force against Yemeni-American cleric Anwar Awlaki.
The heavily redacted SECRET document, declassified in part through the Freedom of Information Act, outlines what CENTCOM "must" and "cannot" do relative to AQAP, but both lists are redacted in full. The released portions of the document include a limited description of Awlaki and his role with AQAP as well as an interagency plan for dealing with AQAP.
