Malik Hasan Tied to 9/11 Hijackers, Radical al Qaeda Preacher

Jawa Report provides more spot-on analysis:

....Hasan attended the radical Saudi funded mosque in Virginia who's now oft quoted and shocked-and-horrified imam is also a big supporter of the ISNA.

....Hasan attended that mosque at the same time as two of the 9/11 hijackers -- Nawaf al-Hamzi and Hani Hanjour.

Did Nidal Hasan know them? Maybe, maybe not.

But the most disturbing part is that the imam of the mosque at the time was Anwar al-Awlaki.  Awlaki is an American who now lives in exile in Yemen where his website incites Muslims to jihad and who has nothing but praise for al Qaeda.

Awlaki is hands down the most cited English language preacher in the underworld of online jihad.

And what was Hasan's view of al-Awlaki?
Hasan's eyes "lit up" when he mentioned his deep respect for al-Awlaki's teachings, according to a fellow Muslim officer at the Fort Hood base in Texas, the scene of Thursday's horrific shooting spree.
Any one who knows anything about al-Awlaki knows he is as radical as they come. A deeper terrorist plot? No indication of that. But those who continue to claim that the attack had nothing to do with a broader goal of jihad really have nothing left to stand on.

Again, let me remind the simple minded that like most human behavior murder is often motivated by many things....

However it is also clear that he held the same world view as the vast majority of Islamist terrorists and that this was at least one of his motivations.

UPDATE: Just checked AllahP who quotes a U.S. Intel official:
There is good reason to believe Anwar Aulaqi has been involved in very serious terrorist activities since leaving the United States, including plotting attacks against America and our allies.”
Update by Barbarossa: Yes, that would be the same Anwar al-Awlaki praised by the New York Times just weeks after the 9/11 attacks as "a new generation of Muslim leader capable of merging East and West":
Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki, spiritual leader at the Dar al-Hijra mosque in Virginia, one of the nation's largest, which draws about 3,000 worshipers for communal prayers each Friday, said: ''In the past we were oblivious. We didn't really care much because we never expected things to happen. Now I think things are different. What we might have tolerated in the past, we won't tolerate any more.'' ''There were some statements that were inflammatory, and were considered just talk, but now we realize that talk can be taken seriously and acted upon in a violent radical way,'' said Mr. Al-Awlaki, who at 30 is held up as a new generation of Muslim leader capable of merging East and West: born in New Mexico to parents from Yemen, who studied Islam in Yemen and civil engineering at Colorado State University.
