Anwar Awlaki, now believed to be an Al Qaeda recruiter hiding in Yemen, is connected to at least two recent suspected terrorism cases the Fort Hood attack and the attempted Christmas Day jet bombing.
The American Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, considered by some to be one of the most wanted terrorists behind Usama bin Laden, was educated in the United States with taxpayers money, an ongoing Fox News investigation has found.
Awlaki, now believed to be recruiting for Al Qaeda from hiding in Yemen, is connected to at least two recent suspected terrorism cases the Fort Hood attack and the attempted Christmas Day jet bombing.
A former diplomatic security agent who was tasked with investigating Awlaki immediately after the Sept. 11 attacks told Fox News that the Yemeni-American national lied on his visa application to attend Colorado State University, where he studied engineering. Rather than tell U.S. immigration officials that he was born in Las Cruces, N.M., in 1971, Awlaki stated that the was foreign born, the security agent, Ray Fournier, said.
Awlaki received $20,000 in scholarship money from a U.S. government program for his schooling in Fort Collins, Colo. When asked if Awlaki was eligible, Fournier said, No, he is absolutely forbidden to have it.
"That's the taxpayers' money," Fournier added, saying Awlaki knew that lying about his birthplace would help him get the scholarship money.
A spokesperson at Colorado State University confirmed that Awlaki listed himself as an international student during his years there. The school would not comment on his financial records citing privacy issues.

Heard this today and wondered how many others (BO included) have gotten a free education by declaring they were exchange students.
Does Alackey have a Hawaiian birth certificate?
So why does being born in the US disqualify one for taxpayer funded financial aid?
So much of the Dept. of Homeland Security.
A muslim liar? No way.
We’ll never know, but I’ll wager there’s others.
They know how to game our system.
Was that radical cleric’s last name Obama?
