What is being asked of Obama?

Winnipeg, Canada

Regarding The Washington Post article titled “Mr. Obama, did you or did you not kill Anwar al-Awlaki?,” which ran in The Japan Times opinion section Feb. 16: Writer David Cole asks whether Obama killed the American citizen with a drone strike.

To which, U.S. President Barack Obama can answer “yes” or “‘no.” Either response is correct and neither resolves the issue. If a clear answer is wanted, ask a clear question.
