The man who was the inspiration for the Christmas bomber, Times Square bomber AND Fort Hood terrorist Major Hasan reportedly has been killed in Yemen.
Two interesting things. Look at this story from the AP. Major Hasan isn’t mentioned. 

The 40-year-old al-Awlaki is believed to have inspired and even plotted or helped coordinate some of the recent attacks on the U.S., including the failed Christmas Day 2009 bombing of an airliner heading for Detroit, Michigan, and the also unsuccessful plot to send mail bombs on planes from Yemen to the United States in October.
Then look at this old ABC story of the connection between Major Hasan and al Awlaki. 

United States Army Major Nidal Hasan told a radical cleric considered by authorities to be an al-Qaeda recruiter, “I can’t wait to join you” in the afterlife, according to an American official with top secret access to 18 e-mails exchanged between Hasan and the cleric, Anwar al Awlaki, over a six month period between Dec. 2008 and June 2009. 

Awlaki, who was born in New Mexico, was once the imam of a Falls Church, Virginia mosque attended by Hasan and two of the 9/11 hijackers. After an intensive investigation by the FBI, Awlaki moved to Yemen where he was imprisoned in 2006 and says he was interrogated by U.S. authorities.

Then look at this story from 2010 when the Obama State Department put him on the hit list (imagine Bush doing that and the blow back he’d get) but the terrorist designation never mentions Hasan. 

Although not mentioned by Treasury, Awlaki has also been linked to Major Nidal Hasan, the US Army doctor who murdered 13 soldiers at a deployment center at Fort Hood, Texas, in November 2009. While Awlaki had originally denied radicalizing Hasan, his emails, which he provided to Al Jazeera, show that he provided the religious justification for Hasan to conduct the attacks.
In March 2010, Awlaki released an audiotape praising Hasan and Abdulmutallab’s attacks on the US. He also admitted that he is now at war with the US.

And from the Terror watchers at the Long War Journal 

Awlaki released a videotape in April 2010 in which he claimed he was “proud” to have trained Hasan and Abdulmutallab. “I am proud to have been their teacher,” Awlaki said in the videotape, which was aired on Al Jazeera.

Just interesting facts from a press and Administration that is loathe to label the Ft Hood massacre a terrorist act. 
Hey Anwar al Awlaki: I hope you’re really dead.
