August 16, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Troubling new evidence possibly linking Anwar Al-Awlaki, an American citizen believed to be living in Yemen, with the September 11 terror attacks, is under scrutiny by the House Homeland Security Committee.
Detailing these new concerns, a letter sent [May 26, 2011] to AG Holder by the Committee's Chairman, Peter King [R-NY] states in part:
"With the years of hindsight into al-Awlaki's growing status within al Qaeda, including his involvement in the Christmas Day 2009 attack, there exists the critical need to reexamine the facts surrounding al-Awlaki and the 9/11 attacks. For instance, The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States...suspected that al-Awlaki tasked Jordanian national Eyad al-Rababah in May 2001 to assist two 9/11 hijackers in finding an apartment. Al-Rababah eventually transported four of the hijackers from Northern Virginia to Connecticut and then Paterson, New Jersey, where they met four others. That group formed the core of the conspiracy to prepare and collaborate for the 9/11 attacks..."
The Committee is requesting documents relating to this aspect of its ongoing probe of the extent to which American Muslims are being radicalized, as well as asking for access to various JTTF personnel who may have knowledge of the dealing of al-Awlaki, vis a vis 9/11.
