go-to imam that the most influential media (NY Times, Washington Post) went to (the "moderate" imam) for all things Islam right after the September 11th attacks (as did the 911 hijackers, for spiritual guidance), is calling for the Muslims to kill Americans.
Devout Muslim al-Awlaki not only ministered to the 911 Muslim terrorists, but also provided succor and Islamic spiritual guidance to the Fort Hood jihadi, the Christmas balls bomber, and the Times Square deadly car bomber — and that's what we know of.
While being entertained the Pentagon. They had the pious Imam to dinner.
Al-Awlaki best illustrates the dangerous failure of the government and the media in understanding our mortal enemies and the ideology that inspires them. Instead of looking objectively at jihad, they demonize and slander those of us who do. Counter jihad leaders are "racists," "bigots," or "anti-muslim-islamophobic bigots." That's where this twisted, perverse narrative has gotten us. Big media, the NY Times, the Washington Post and the U.S. Government believe that any Muslim who is not actively setting off a bomb is ipso facto a "moderate." But they have no qualms about vicously attacking me or Spencer as the real "extremists."
Instead of wining and dining Awlaki after 911, he should have been arrested and tried for treason and executed. Easy in hindsight? Yes, but still that lesson has not been learned.
We are witnessing the same delusional (and invariably, fatal) thinking in the media and the government's love affair with Ground Zero mosque Imam Rauf.

The U.S.-born Islamic cleric Anwar al-Awlaki made what looks to be his most threatening message yet: calling on Muslims to kill Americans at will, because it is "either us or them."
The video posted on extremist websites Monday may be Awlaki's attempt to capitalize on his recent notoriety. Awlaki, who the United States believes is in Yemen, is accused by Yemen of playing a role in the sending of bombs through the mail in packages addressed to Chicago.
