Chattanooga Shooter Linked To CIA, FBI Asset Anwar Al-Awlaki

Al-Awlaki, who dined at the Pentagon, also had ties to Ft. Hood shooting, Charlie Hebdo attack

Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez, the gunman who killed four Marines and a Navy sailor last week in Chattanooga, Tenn., was heavily influenced by Anwar al-Awlaki, a CIA and FBI asset who had dined at the Pentagon not long after 9/11.

Abdulazeez had collected CDs and downloaded audio recordings of al-Awlaki’s teachings, placing him in the same company as the Ft. Hood shooter, the underwear bomber, three of the alleged 9/11 hijackers and the Charlie Hebdo terrorists.

Al-Awlaki, however, was a CIA asset with additional links to the FBI and was invited to attend a luncheon at the Pentagon in 2001, despite his known connections to the 9/11 hijackers.

“American-born cleric al-Awlaki’s role as a key figure in almost every recent terror plot targeting the United States and Canada, coupled with his visit to the Pentagon, only confirms our long stated position that al-Awlaki is a chief terrorist patsy-handler for the CIA – he is the federal government’s premier false flag agent,” Paul Joseph Watson wrote.

In other words, al-Awlaki influenced and recruited young Muslims for violent jihad against soft targets in the U.S. and abroad.

The two alleged terrorists who attacked the satirical French magazine Charlie Hebdo in Jan., Cherif and Said Kouachi, admitted they were recruited by al-Awlaki.

“I was sent, me, Cherif Kouachi, by al-Qaeda of Yemen. I went over there and it was Anwar al-Awlaki who financed me,” Kouachi told BFM-TV by telephone prior to an assault by French police, according to Reuters.

Additionally, government documents released by the watchdog group Judicial Watch exposed al-Awlaki’s relationship with the FBI and that the agency even ordered customs agents to ignore an outstanding warrant for al-Awlaki’s arrest.

“Fox News was first to report that in 2002, al-Awlaki was released from custody at JFK International Airport — despite an active warrant for his arrest — with the okay of FBI Agent Wade Ammerman,” Fox News reported in 2014. “[The documents] show the cleric was emailing and leaving voice messages with an FBI agent in 2003, a year after Ammerman told customs agents at JFK airport to bypass an outstanding warrant for the cleric’s arrest.”

“The documents further support claims that al-Awlaki, who eventually went overseas and linked up with an al-Qaeda affiliate, worked with the FBI and was likely a U.S. government asset.”
