Islam Cleric Al-Awlaki Warns of Future Attacks Against The United States

Awlaki is warning of more terrorist attacks man caused disasters

Fugitive American-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki warned of new attacks on Americans at home and abroad in a new video released over the weekend.

Anwar al-Awlaki, who is believed to be hiding in Yemen, accused U.S. forces of deliberately killing women and children in Iraq and Afghanistan. And he praised Maj. Nidal Hasan, the U.S. Army psychiatrist charged in the November massacre at Fort Hood, Texas, calling him "one of my students."

"Oh, America, if you transgress against us, we will transgress against you, and you keep killing our people, we will kill your people," Anwar al-Awlaki says in the video. "This is the image that we need to present. These American soldiers heading to Afghanistan and Iraq will be killed. We will kill them if we can, there in Fort Hood, or we will kill them in Afghanistan and Iraq."

U.S. authorities also have linked al-Awlaki to the failed attempt to blow up a U.S.-bound jetliner in December.

Wild Thing's comment........

I hope a drone finds him soon. Just curious, why hasn’t his citenzenship been revoked?

This below is from 2004 article in US News and World Report on Al-Aulaqi provided this curious tidbit about the “imam”:

The probe of the 9/11 attacks soon led Washington FBI agents back to San Diego, where they found that al-Awlaki had twice been busted for soliciting prostitutes in 1996 and 1997 but had avoided jail time. Al-Awlaki has previously described these charges as “bogus.” But FBI agents hoped al-Awlaki might cooperate with the 9/11 probe if they could nab him on similar charges in Virginia. FBI sources say agents observed the imam allegedly taking Washington-area prostitutes into Virginia and contemplated using a federal statute usually reserved for nabbing pimps who transport prostitutes across state lines. But in March 2002, al-Awlaki abruptly left the country for Yemen. “When he left town, it was as if the air went out of the balloon,” says one FBI source. Al-Awlaki briefly returned to the United States in October 2002, but federal authorities did not have sufficient cause to detain him, even though his name popped up on a terrorist “lookout” database. Now he’s back in the Middle East, where FBI agents are said to be keeping their eyes on him.

This jackass should have been in the cross-hairs a long time ago.

Jim, I agree, they can't ignore him anymore like they have been.
