Den kjente jihad-predikanten Anwar al-Awlaki skal ha brukt tusenvis av dollar på prostituerte da han reiste rundt i USA for å verve folk, skriver Daily Mail.

The radical American-born Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki spent thousands of dollars on prostitutes while he traveled the country preaching fundamentalist Islam, it had been revealed.
The FBI, which was tracking al-Awlaki’s movements, watched as he met at least seven times with prostitutes in the Washington D.C. area between November 2001 and February 2002, according to newly leaked documents.
The agency estimated he spent $2,300 on hookers in Washington alone. He is also believed to have purchased the services of prostitutes when he traveled to Florida.

En kvinne beskriver mötet med ham i februar 2002. Han betalte henne 400 $ og var høflig. Dette var rett før al-Awlaki skulle forklare for en kongresskomite hvordan man forebygger radikalisering!

The encounter came at a Washington hotel on Feburary 4, 2002 – one day before he was invited to give a presentation at the Pentagon. Al-Awlaki was recruited by the government speak about outreach to moderate Muslims, it was revealed in 2010.

Another prostitute told the FBI that al-Awlaki paid her $300 to watch as ‘as she engaged in erotic behavior and stimulated herself’ in December 2001.
They met again for the same activity in January 2002.
Despite al-Awlaki’s fundamentalist religious teachings, it appears the married father of five had a history of paying for sex.
He was arrested in 1996 and 1997 for soliciting prostitutes in San Diego. He pleaded guilty and paid a fine.
Al-Awlaki’s predilection for prostitutes recalls reports that several 9-11 hijackers traveled to Las Vegas and bought lap dances at strip clubs before the September 11 attacks.

Al-Awlaki ble drept av droner i Jemen i september 2011. Omstendighetene rundt hans død vakte diskusjon. Al-Awlaki var amerikansk statsborger. President Obama autoriserte at han ble «tatt ut», og spørsmålet var om han kunne gjøre det uten lov og dom.
