Anwar al-Awlaki, the U.S.-born radical cleric who was reportedly targeted this week by an American drone missile, called the September 11, 2001 attacks “an accident” just two days after they occurred.
Al-Awalaki spoke on camera to a local television station on September 13.
“The mosque has been shut down, since the day of the accident,” he said.
Al-Awlaki, who was born in New Mexico, was the Imam at the Dar Al Hijrah Mosque in Virginia, which had been vandalized at the time.
