This Fox News investigative special goes deep inside the mysterious and deadly world of American born terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki.
There are 22 known terrorist training camps within the United States. Why don’t we hear special reports about all of them?
FOX NEWS Report covers Awlaki’s twisted and destructive trail from suburban communities in the U.S. to his hideout in Yemen. New evidence emerging in the details about the Times Square bomber, the failed attempt to blow up a plane on Christmas Day and the massacre at Fort Hood has put for the first time a U.S. citizen on the CIA’s “capture or kill” list.
Evidence includes documents that relate to the investigation of Anwar Al-Awlaki, the Muslim cleric who has been associated with 9/11 hijackers, Major Nidal Hasan, the alleged-Fort Hood shooter, and Umar Abdulmutallab, the so-called Christmas Day bomber. They include declassified memoranda for the record from the 9/11 Commission, the warrant for Awlaki’s arrest from June 2002 as well as the motion to dismiss the warrant from October 2002.
Exclusive interviews with former and current government agents raise several questions: Was Awlaki part of a terrorist cell within this country that attacked America on 9/11? And following the attacks, was there an attempt by our government to turn Awlaki into an informant or track him for intelligence?
CBS NEWS Anwar al-Awlaki – the U.S.-born Muslim cleric who has been linked to the 9/11 attackers, accused Ft. Hood shooter Nidal Hasan, and accused Christmas Day bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab – released a statement Friday seemingly taunting the West over its inability to stifle “homegrown” radicalism.
“Eight years after 9/11 and the declaration of war against terrorism, Jihad is still reaching the shores of Europe and America,” al-Awlaki writes. “Not from the outside, but from within. Jihad is not being imported but is being homegrown.“ The media around the globe is painting Jihad in the worst possible colors. Day and night the masses are hearing an orchestra of smear against the mujahideen.
In such an inhospitable environment, Jihad is still flourishing, like a blessed tree sprouting through an earth of waste and pollution. The Jihad movement has not only survived but is expanding. Isn’t it ironic that the two capitals of the war against Islam, Washington D.C. and London have also become among the centers of Western Jihad? Jihad is becoming as American as apple pie and as British as afternoon tea.
