Times Square bomb plot suspect Faisal Shahzad is a “fan and follower" of a radical American-born cleric linked to the Fort Hood attack in November and the attempted jet bombing on Christmas Day, sources tell Fox News.Al-Awlaki was also a former Imam at the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, VA, where he was a cleric to two of the 9/11 hijackers who hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 and crashed it into the Pentagon. The mosque held a fundraiser last month in which DNC Chair Tim Kaine, Democrat Congressmen Jim Moron and "Jihad" Gerry Connolly were invited. Kaine & Moron did not attend, however Connolly and two Fairfax County supervisors are not willing to say if they did nor did not attend.
Shahzad is a fan of Anwar al-Awlaki's CDs, which promote the cleric's extremist Muslim ideology, sources say, however, there is no known evidence yet that that Shahzad had direct contact with Awlaki, such as through e-mails.
Awlaki, who is under a kill-or-capture order by the U.S. government and believed to be hiding in Yemen, is now linked to the last three terrorist plots designed to kill Americans at home.
This is now four acts of terrorism or attempted terror plots linked to this Imam.
