Fox News Reporting: The American Terrorist

Sunday, June 20 at 12 a.m. and Monday, June 21 at 12 a.m. and 3 a.m. ET
Hosted by Bill Hemmer

This Fox News investigative special goes deep inside the mysterious and deadly world of American born terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki.

Fox News correspondents Catherine Herridge and Greg Palkot follow Awlaki's twisted and destructive trail from suburban communities in the U.S. to his hideout in Yemen.

New evidence emerging in the details about the Times Square bomber, the failed attempt to blow up a plane on Christmas Day and the massacre at Fort Hood has put for the first time a U.S. citizen on the CIA's "capture or kill" list.

Evidence includes documents that relate to the investigation of Anwar Al-Awlaki, the Muslim cleric who has been associated with 9/11 hijackers, Major Nidal Hasan, the alleged-Fort Hood shooter, and Umar Abdulmutallab, the so-called Christmas Day bomber.

They include declassified memoranda for the record from the 9/11 Commission, the warrant for Awlaki's arrest from June 2002 as well as the motion to dismiss the warrant from October 2002.

Also included is the Justice Department's statement to Fox News regarding our inquiry into the decision to rescind Awlaki's arrest warrant.

Exclusive interviews with former and current government agents raise several questions: Was Awlaki part of a terrorist cell within this country that attacked America on 9/11? And following the attacks, was there an attempt by our government to turn Awlaki into an informant or track him for intelligence?

Following last week's original airing of "Fox News Reporting: The American Terrorist," Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., wrote a letter to FBI direct Robert Mueller where he raised "troubling" issues about the handling of the investigation into terror suspect Anwar Awlaki and called to bring back the 9/11 Commission to review purported flaws in national security.

You will see for yourself how this American terrorist is using our system against us.
