Not at all surprising to read from British press that Nidal Malik Hasan attended the same mosque that three 9-11 hijackers attended - probably at the same time. While virtually all American media solemnly and virtuously ignores the Islamic aspect of what caused the death of 13 American soldiers on American soil, and left many more severely wounded, The TelegraphUK found a possible connection
According to the report, Hasan worshipped at the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Great Falls Virginia in 2001. The iman, who regularly called for jihad in America, was adored by his followers, and he is American born.
...at the same time as two of the September 11 terrorists, The Sunday Telegraph has learnt. His mother's funeral was held there in May that year.
The preacher at the time was Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born Yemeni scholar who was banned from addressing a meeting in London by video link in August because he is accused of supporting attacks on British troops and backing terrorist organisations.
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....
Al-Awlaki moved to Dar al-Hijrah as imam in January, 2001, from the west coast, and three months later the September 11 hijackers Nawaf al-Hamzi and Hani Hanjour began attending his services. A third hijacker attended his services in California....
Charles Allen, a former under-secretary for intelligence at the Department of Homeland Security, has described al-Awlaki, who now lives in Yemen, as an "al-Qaeda supporter, and former spiritual leader to three of the September 11 hijackers... who targets US Muslims with radical online lectures encouraging terrorist attacks from his new home in Yemen".
