With the recent death of Usama bin Laden, the life of another Al Qaeda-linked radical Muslim cleric is taking on greater significance, and documents obtained exclusively by Fox News and its Specials Unit shed new light on his stint as a guest speaker at the Pentagon just months after the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, the first American on the CIAs kill or capture list, is still considered a grave threat to U.S. national security. He now is hiding out in Yemen, where earlier this month a U.S. missile attack tried to kill him and his followers.
The scene was much different on February 5, 2002, when the radical imam was invited to and attended the Pentagon event.
Fox News obtained new documents through a Freedom of Information Act request as part of a year-long investigation called "Fox News Reporting: Secrets of 9/11." An internal Department of Defense email that announced the event with Awlaki also laid out other details, like a proposed menu including pork, which is prohibited for Muslims. The email states "the chef will create something special for vegetarians."

who was his lunch partner and translator??
let me guess - Major Hasan, the Ft Hood shooter
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Who was this "Defense Department lawyer"?
This article is useless without names.
They very carefully noted “SHE”........
What”s with “Usama” all of a sudden instead of “Osama”?
It looks less like Obama
Don’t know but I have a feeling some in our DD can’t be trusted. Maybe Assange can get more details.
Journalistas got angry about misreading OSAMA as OBAMA off their teleprompters on tv.
Been that way for a LONG time. The Reds inside the State Department went on the offense against HCUA, McCarthy, and Cohn. They found it "shocking" that anyone would accuse people within our government and military as having foreign loyalties and seeking to take down the US from within the institutions.
The SS and DD needs to find out who was in charge of the vetting and investigate that person or persons. There seems to be a serious vetting problem these days.
I wonder if anyone will do any follow-up to this story.
At this point, probably Wikileaks. Actually, Wikileaks is another story I find odd.
They are a bit too ‘mysterious’.
He must be a very confident terrorist to walk into the pentagon after 9/11 for a “lunch”.
Yeah, the more I learn about the Bush admin., the more disappointed I become.
