Default Radical al Qaeda cleric “lunched” at Pentagon

Awlaqi, a Yemeni-American cleric, was brought to the Pentagon as part of an effort by the office of the secretary of defense (OSD) to reach out to the Muslim community after the September 11, 2001 attacks, military spokesman Colonel Dave Lapan told AFP.
“Our understanding thus far is that this was an informal outreach conducted by part of the OSD staff in the aftermath of 9/11 in an effort to gain a better understanding of Islam,” Lapan said.
The account of the lunch with military officers and defense officials was first reported by Fox News, which cited FBI documents and sources.
President Barack Obama’s administration has authorized the targeted killing of Awlaqi, an American citizen who US officials believe is linked to three plots against the United States, including a shooting rampage at Fort Hood last year, a failed bid to blow up a US-bound airliner on Christmas Day and an attempt to set off a car bomb in New York’s Times Square.
A current employee of the Defense Department told the FBI last year that she had helped arrange the invitation after hearing Awlaqi speak in Alexandria, Virginia.
The employee “recalls being impressed by this imam. He condemned al Qaeda and the terrorist attacks,” according to an FBI document posted online by Fox News.
At that time, the then-secretary of the US Army was interested in having a “moderate Muslim” speak to a Pentagon audience, said the FBI document.
Awlaqi came under FBI scrutiny after the 9/11 attacks because of his ties to some of the hijackers.
But Pentagon officials who approved the lunch invitation were apparently unaware of the FBI’s interest in Awlaqi.
The Pentagon employee was interviewed by the FBI as part of the investigation into the Fort Hood shooting, which left 13 people dead.
Now based in Yemen, Awlaqi rose to prominence last year after it emerged he had communicated extensively by email with Major Nidal Hasan, the US Army psychiatrist accused of opening fire on colleagues at Fort Hood.
Awlaqi has praised the Fort Hood rampage and said Muslims like Hasan should only serve in the US military if they planned to carry out similar attacks. —AFP

Is there a reason why you quote and link to the Sun rather than the Weekly World News?

The plot failed because the bombs were so badly stitched inside the dogs that they died, according to a report in the respected French daily newspaper Le Figaro.

“This case illustrates the determination of al-Qaeda militants, who are trying to circumvent terrorism controls by any means,” French criminologist Christophe Naudin, an aviation security expert, told the newspaper.

The plot unfolded two years ago, when al-Qaeda bomb makers grabbed the two stray dogs off the street and surgically implanted powerful explosives and detonators in each, the New York Post reported.

The dogs were then placed in kennel carriers and sent to the Baghdad airport for a flight to the US. Le Figaro did not say what city they were headed for.

Of course it was all made up ric, we all know Al queda is too reasonable to do something like that.
