August 2nd, 2012, The FBI, for the the first time, has admitted publicly that it knew the radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki was returning to the US in October 2002 and that an FBI agent discussed the American’s return with a US attorney before he was detained and then abruptly released from federal custody. Al-Awlaki, who would become the first American targeted for death by the CIA, eventually was killed last September in Yemen by a US drone strike. Since September 2009, 26 terrorism cases have been tied to him and his digital jihad, INSPIRE, according to the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy.
“I really want to get to the bottom (of this),” said Republican Rep. Frank Wolf, chairman of the committee that has oversight of the FBI. The committee was holding a hearing Wednesday on the Webster report on the FBI’s intelligence failures leading up to the Fort Hood massacre. Al-Awlaki exchanged 19 emails with Maj. Nidal Hasan, accused of murdering 13 in the shooting.
“Terrorists Samir Khan and Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen orchestrated at least 4 terror attacks that hit or missed inside the USA. Anwar al-Awlaki was linked to Mohamed Atta and the 9/11 hijackers. My pal Samir Khan put me on a hit list and posted death threats about me along with a YouTube terror video dedicated to me.
Posted on Samir Khan’s website May 1st, 2009; “The lying enemy of Allah, Bill Warner – may Allah destroy him - claimed that he was the one who shut down our blog. Let this be a testimony that this disbeliever is a liar. May Allah send a hurricane over his house so that he can be wiped out, humiliated. We have dedicated a video, to the return of the blog, to strike fear in the hearts of the Kuffaar (Bill Warner) and Munafiqeen. Please pass the message on, SEE VIDEO CLICK HERE.
July 18th, 2012, Families of three Americans killed in drone attacks in Yemen last year have sued Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, CIA Director David Petraeus and two top special operations forces commanders.
The Sept. 30th, 2011 airstrikes killed radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, a senior figure in al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula; his 16-year-old son, Abdul Rahman; and Samir Khan, the editor of an online, English-language jihadist publication, INSPIRE.
The American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Constitutional Rights filed the suit on behalf of the father of Anwar al-Awlaki, who was born in New Mexico, and the mother of Samir Khan, a naturalized citizen who had lived in New York City and North Carolina. Al-Awlaki’s son was born in Colorado.
