Born in U.S., a Radical Cleric Inspires Terror
By SCOTT SHANE
Published: November 18, 2009
WASHINGTON In nearly a dozen recent terrorism cases in the United States, Britain and Canada, investigators discovered the suspects had something in common: a devotion to the message of Anwar al-Awlaki, an eloquent Muslim cleric who has turned the Web into a tool for extremist indoctrination.
For at least a decade, counterterrorism officials have had a wary eye on Mr. Awlaki, an American citizen now living in Yemen. His contacts with three of the Sept. 11 hijackers, at mosques where he served in San Diego and Falls Church, Va., remain a perplexing mystery about the 2001 attacks, said Philip Zelikow, who was executive director of the national 9/11 commission.
But in recent years, concerns have focused on Mr. Awlakis influence via his Web site, his Facebook page and many booklets and CDs carrying his message, including a text called 44 Ways to Support Jihad.
Mr. Awlakis current site, www.anwar-alawlaki.com, went offline after he was linked to Major Hasan, apparently because a series of Web hosting companies took it down. The home page on Wednesday displayed a Muslim greeting and a promise: The Web site will be back to normal with a few days time.
Portions of Awlaki's website have been recovered from Google cache:

We hereby declare and make absolute public declaration that the website anwar-alawlaki.com operates under the divine right bestowed by the Creator to freedom of religion and tasteful expression and that in no, way, shape or form do we call for war against U.S. civilians.
We hold the belief, that the Muslim world should be permitted to unite under the banner of Islam. To suggest that this in some way implies that the reestablishment of the caliphate would require the dismantlement of the United States government is fallacy. We seek, rather, to witness the imperialist ambitions of the United States government and especially the private tyrannies (corporations, financial institutions, military-industrial complex) that control it subside in their quest for empire and "full spectrum dominance" and we call for the relinquishment of autonomy and respect for sovereignty across the Muslim world to the people and not in the hands of the dictators, and authoritarian regimes this structure keeps in power by continuing to engage in foreign policy we feel is the root cause of all the terrorism in the world.
