Most wanted: Anwar al-Awlaki

Each week, CNN examines one of the most wanted terrorists around the world. Check out more of the Most Wanted.

Who is he?
An American-born radical cleric who now lives in Yemen, Anwar al-Awlaki is the public face of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), one of the most active al Qaeda affiliates.

Born in New Mexico, he preached at a mosque in Virginia before leaving the U.S. for the Middle East. The U.S. regards al-Awlaki as the biggest threat to its homeland security.

U.S. officials say al-Awlaki helped recruit Umar Farouk AbdulMutallab, the Nigerian man charged with trying to blow up a transatlantic flight as it landed in Detroit, Michigan, on December 25, 2009.

The militant cleric is also said to have exchanged e-mails with accused Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hassan who killed a dozen fellow soldiers and a civilian in a rampage at the Texas base.

AQAP claimed responsibility for the attempt to ship explosives into the United States via cargo planes late last year.

In 2011, al-Awlaki narrowly survived an American drone assault after he switched vehicles with fellow jihadis, a senior security official told CNN.

At a U.S. congressional hearing earlier this year, Michael Leiter, Director of the National Counterterrorism Center, said: "I actually consider al Qaeda in the Arab peninsula with al-Awlaki as a leader within that organization as probably the most significant threat to the U.S."

Date of Birth: April 22, 1971
Place of Birth: United States
Nationality: U.S. and Yemen

    This should not be a war between two religions. Yea, its true that the Americans are oppressors, used us Africans as slaves to build their country, even up till this moment, most of the important people are blacks, that said, the muslims are not without blame either, y believe in such arrant nonsense that when you blow yourselves and kill other people you have got virgins waiting for you, why take lives of people you never created. Christianity is so different from Islam because we dont believe in Violence, we dont fight for God,our God fights for himself and for us. We dont have to kill people to show our faith in Him.

      slavery in Africa predates European dominance or colonies there. African tribes raided each other, took slaves, and in the 18th century SOLD them to European slave traders. The Mahdi of the Sudan, a BLACK, rose to power and received support because he supported the continuation of slavery. At the time, the British were trying to rid the Sudan and surrounding area of slavery. That did not sit well with the Mahdi of the Sudan.
      In a nutshell, you should stop blaming whites for problems for slavery that is neither a white nor a black practice.

They want the United States to do all the work while they just sit on their azzes and do nothing!! Do not tell me that your country is perfect b/c it is one that sits when they should be helping. It is best to crush a problem away from home then fight it at home – you are a dumbazz!

    The Devil tempted Jesus by offering Him the kingdoms, their wealth and all the pleasures of the world as long as Jesus worshiped him. Precisely that is what Islam offers to Muslim monarchs and leaders as long as they worship the Ant-Christ and do whatever it takes to keep Him above all things. Islamic monarchs owe their wealth, absolute power, their hundreds of concubines and pleasures to Satan, it is logical to maintain, glorify and expand Satan' rule over the world providing all the means necessary to his followers to execute their evil commands.

    Secular Americans, when you talk about respecting everyone, it sounds only as a bad joke because you disrespect God and bash Christianity and your own ancestors. We non-Westerners are trained not to trust disobedient kids, playboys and pro-sti-tu-tes like secular Americans. You make your slave-owning great grand-parents look a lot nicer than you.

      Zelda, first of all... my ancestors are from Poland and Germany, during the 1800s, and never owned slaves. Their children and grandchildren came to America, fought in two different wars to overthrow tyranical governments in their grandparent's homelands. And I can garantee this is a common story across the U.S.

      Please don't judge a country on the worst examples. If you go anywhere on this planet, your going to remember your visit, and look back and first remember the worst of it, how rude somebody may have been. Please don't judge by the worst examples... Judge by the best. And for the record, Paris Hilton, Snooki, and Lindsey Lohan are NOT the Best... By most Americans they are considered amoung the worst. They just happen to find cameras more often than the 'Best.'

      Sal Guinta, for an exhedingly good example of the 'Best'. Look also at how generous the American public is as a whole. How much money is donated to various causes around the world. At all the housing, hospitols and schools are being built by our military, as well as the British, Polish and German militaries, in Afghanistan.

      Additionally... Soldier... Here Here!!!

      Show me one tribe of humans who did NOT have slaves. All our ancestors have blood on their hands. My people got enslaved by Moroccans even before we bought slaves ourselves. It was economically a good hint of those muslims, in that era. You could buy them from the Yoruba or more directly from the Imbangala tribe if you went more inland into Nigeria. So if someone wants to get even, as regards 17th century slavery, I suggest to find the culprits near the source, i.e., in Africa.

      Zelda, what? did you go to 2 public schools in America? Highschool and Community College? WE HAVE RELIGIOUS SCHOOLS ALL OVER THE UNITED STATES DUMB ASS. Here you idiot, is a list of almost all RELGIOUS SCHOOLS (PRIVATE) in the state of TEXAS. http://www.texaschristianschools.com I'm sure they would be more than happy to explain how much they love christ. I went to a private Catholic school my whole life and enjoyed learning about scripture, tradition, and God. (WOWZERS IM NOT EVEN CATHOLIC) Guess what? The purpose of not teaching religion in public schools is to not "offend" anyone elses beliefs and restricts the influence on children(WHICH HELPS THE CHILD MAKE THEIR OWN DECISION ON RELIGION). Just how not teaching christianity to a school full of jews, christians, muslims, hindus, and jedi offends you.

    bajazit, your fervor for a fight is to be commended but you will still be fighting a losing war. The US has enough firepower to kill everybody on the planet 3(?) times. That's Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines.

    The US Army is the best equipped and best trained ground force in the world and is getting better at the counter terrorism and insurgent mission.

    The US Navy can be deployed anywhere in the world given enough time and project force in any direction. If you think about all the carriers with all their planes and the tomahawk missile ships and the submarines, that's A LOT of firepower. I'd be afraid of the subs considering Islamist extremists can't do anything about them.

    The US Air Force has better planes and better pilots than anybody else in the world. There's also the AC-130 Spectre, very useful for demolishing an entire terrorist training camp.

    As for the Marines, if you see one then lose sight of them, you're already dead. Pound for pound, Marines are the meanest people on the planet. It would be VERY detrimental to your health to piss one off.

    To finish, I'll leave a quote from Gen. George S. Patton:

    "Untutored courage is useless in the face of educated bullets."

      It kind of depends upon how you measure "best." For best health care, there are lots of countries ahead of the USA. The same is true for education. If we look at unemployment, again, the USA isn't the best. Yes, if you measure lots of different things, you might convince yourself that overall the USA is best and that lots of people want to come here. However, there are a lot of people who do not. Your "majority" comment is just stupid. In a planet with Billions of people on it, we only have a few hundred million people in the USA, and relatively speaking, there are not that many trying to get here, legally or illegally.

    Saying Islam is backward or the root cause- explains a lot of ignorance of history. Remember the ottoman period, andalucia, the crusades. And if you think Christianity is better than Islam, remember what Hitler did or the F' serbs in Bosnia with killing and rape. You can blame Muslims but don't blame Islam. People who commit killing of innocence dont know islam and are not muslims. If you think Muslims are backward look how many are your doctors? your lawyers? Just please stop the garbage hate.

      The "oppression" and "lack of hope" do NOT come from America. They come from the thieves, rats and scoundrels who call themselves "shieks" and "leaders" while robbing their own people blind. The blame for all the hatred of America falls squarely on the shoulders of the filthy Imams and ayatollahs who are afraid their own people will learn to think and reject their ridiculous religion. So they drum hatred of the West into everybodys heads with their lies.

    The little blurb about Anwar al-Awlaki fails to mention that while in San Diego, he was arrested several times for solicitation, as well as cited repeatedly for loitering around playgrounds and schools. Neither does it mention that he is really very ignorant about the Quran, bluffing his way through theology even as he was passing himself as an imam, something anyone can claim, of course, because there are no standards. Yes, he is probably the most important and dangerous terrorist because of his influence on others, yet he remains a US citizen...whose President has (at least publicly) put out a contract on him.

    The root of the problem is ISLAM. This religion -actually a sect- transforms ordinary people into irrational beasts. Muslim clerics (ayatollahs, mullahs, muftis, imans, ullemas, sheiks, etc) are the main responsible of the violence, terrorism, hatred, resentment and discrimination around the world. These evil creatures find brainless people and social pariahs to brainwash them to commit all kinds of atrocities without remorse. Islamic clerics insert into their followers' minds their distorted Muslim morality and lack of universal ethical and moral standards. It is just NOT possible that someone can go to paradise and be saved as long they follow the "Five Pillars of Islamic Faith" (pilgrimage to Mecca, fast in Ramadan, pray 5 times a day, proclaim One God, pay the tithe to mosques) without considering how many people were assassinated, mutilated, raped, tortured, robed, etc. by Islamic followers. Christian's second commandment is to love one's neighbor as oneself, Muslim second commandment is an "eye-for-an-eye". Unless these Anti-Christ disciples change their ideology/religion nothing is going to change. Mohammed immoral conduct and highly questionable actions will continue to be the role model for all these despicable demonic individuals.

        With about 1/2 the muslim world illiterate (1 billion people), yeah, we do think you guys are stupid.

        If not, why would you worship a cult of death set up by a 7th century highwayman/bandit/murderer/robber/rapist/pedophile.

        Ooh EGYPT and PAKISTAN. We're so afraid.

        Egypt and Pakistan have over 80 million and 130 million people respectively.

        But each of their economies are smaller than Singapore's (5 million people)?

        Incredible. This just shows how backward the muslim world is.

        Remember, it is because the West loves life more than you muslims love death, we have not exterminated all of you yet. But keep up your nonsense. Keep firebombing embassies, killing cartoonists, burning cars, bombing markets, assaulting schools.

        One day the West will get tired of your antics, and another Holocaust will happen.

        Except this time, you people FULLY DESERVE IT.

        i needed to learn to translate american language,for example,when americans want to say 'we are cowards,we will milk america,but wouldn't sacrifice ourselves'-amercans use the phrase 'we love life'.when americans want to say 'we are fascists and we want to occupy your country and steal everything' then americans will say 'we have money and technology'.of course you have,because you stole both from half of the world.and you hate everyone who resists and call names and kill people.but you will fall on your back very hard.if muslims wanted to end this occupation,they would arm talibans and after one month with one thousand casualties,america would pull out.but muslims want to see you hurt badly,and for that you need to bleed long and stay there,until everything crashes here and america ends up in bloody civil war.

        Im with bajazitz with this one, the only reason Muslim countries are behind is due to foreign interference and placing dictators. Its only a matter of time when Muslims take their countries and resources.

      Islam is not the root of the problem. It can be the fundamentalism, conflict between the Shiite and Sunni and many other reason other than just Islam. Don't start point fingers at Islam, because it will give them a reason to dislike or hate any countries. Ask yourself "how I will react when they talk down about my religion and culture?" Then you see how they feel. You should respect and tolerate other religions and cultures.

      americans are spineless people that will join anyone,if it will make money for them.in 1940 they sent jews back to auschwitz,8 years later they helped those same jews in stealing palestine.in 1980-ies america was helping saddam and talibans,in 1990-ies it was making war on them.americans are like aligators,good only to be used for making shoes.often americans here ask me what people abroad think of americans.what do they expect i will answer?people think you are garbage.you are not welcome.but,hey,you can still have garages full of chinese crap.

        That's...not much really. Individually, most anyone could pay that themselves, monthly. Do you have that period in the right spot?

        I'm absolutely disgusted with some of the comments here, namely Cheeseroll's (am I supposed to take that name seriously?) You're in favor of slaughtering and torturing an entire religious group of millions and millions of people and children, based on the actions of the few? You think that because a few Muslims have attacked us, now ALL of them should be mercilessly killed just because of their religion? Your post just screams "This lunatic is a sociopath". I hate to do the standard internet cliche of bringing up Hitler (especially when you've already done it, you pig) but that is exactly the mindset he had when he murdered all those people. Murder is NEVER right or justified. We have no right to decide who "deserves" to live or die.
