Congress to Probe Suspected Connection Between Anwar al-Awlaki and 9/11

Would not surprise me, how about you?
Awlaki was a lot younger and probably trying to get on the good side of Al Qaida in the days before 9/11, and the whole thing may have been overlooked or swept under by the 9/11 investigators.

Yep no need to have him on the Kill or capture list.

The House Homeland Security Committee “has initiated an investigation” into the radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and whether he was an overlooked key player in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, a letter from the committee chairman to Attorney General Eric Holder says.

The three-page letter, obtained exclusively by Fox News, makes the case that a decade after the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil, the full story of 9/11 has not been told.

“This congressional investigation will seek to determine:

"1. To what extent Anwar al-Awlaki wittingly or unwittingly facilitated the plot of the 9/11 hijackers; and

"2. to what extent al-Awlaki was an al Qaeda operative, offering support to acts of terrorism before 9/11.”

The letter to Holder, sent by Republican Rep. Peter King of New York, confirms that investigators believe the American cleric's contacts with three of the five hijackers on Flight 77, which slammed into the Pentagon, were more than a series of coincidences, but rather evidence of a purposeful relationship.
