A New York congressman sent a letter to the chief executive of YouTube Sunday, asking that the company remove all videos featuring Anwar al-Awlaki — a man the congressman called the “bin Laden of the internet.”
Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-New York, made the request one day after the online appearance of a new al-Awlaki video. The Yemeni-American cleric and militant has been linked to al Qaeda terrorists in Yemen, where he is believed to be in hiding.
Weiner said that hundreds of al-Awlaki videos are available on YouTube, with a combined total of more than 3.5 million views.
