Awlaki Strikes Again ^ | May 10, 2010 | Investors Business Daily staff

War On Terror: The world's most dangerous man — Anwar Awlaki — just got more dangerous with news he also inspired the Times Square terrorist. More must be done to take out this menace.

The U.S.-born Muslim cleric, who's believed to be al-Qaida's top recruiter in the West, also radicalized the Fort Hood shooter and the Christmas crotch-bomber. Awlaki privately ministered to some of the 9/11 hijackers as well.

Now it turns out that confessed New York car bomber Faisal Shahzad is a fan and follower of Awlaki. He joins a growing list of homegrown terrorists who fell under the al-Qaida operative's spell.

Investigators say Shahzad, a financial analyst-turned-jihadist, listened to Awlaki's online sermons calling for violent jihad. Awlaki has 4,800 Facebook friends, including many in the U.S.

With the Times Square plot, Awlaki is now linked to the last three terrorist plots designed to kill Americans at home. This makes him a direct and immediate threat to this nation — and a bigger threat than even Osama bin Laden. In fact, he's America's bin Laden.
