Hasan Tried to Contact Al Qaeda

U.S. intelligence agencies learned months ago that Army Major Nidal Hasan was trying to make contacts with Al Qaeda, two sources tell ABC News. It is unknown if these agencies informed the Army. Hasan also attended a mosque run by a radical imam named Anwar al Awlaki in Falls Church, Virginia at the same time as two of the 9/11 hijackers, though it is unknown if there was ever any contact between them. Now living in Yemen, Awlaki blogged on Monday, “Nidal Hassan Did the Right Thing.”
