Is There a 9/11 Link to Ft. Hood?

As the investigation continues into the Fort Hood shooting last week, it’s been discovered that Major Nidal Malik Hasan worshipped at a Virginia mosque at the same time as two of the September 11 hijackers. Britain's Sunday Telegraph reports that the only suspect in the killing of 13 U.S. soldiers in Texas attended the Dar al-Hijrah Mosque, where the imam Anwar al-Awlaki presided. A former Homeland Security official has called al-Awlaki an "al Qaeda supporter, and former spiritual leader to three of the September 11 hijackers ... who targets U.S. Muslims with radical online lectures encouraging terrorist attacks from his new home in Yemen."
