Imam Behind Ft. Hood Shooting Calls Muslims To Kill U.S. Civilians, Awlaki Not Among FBI’s ‘Most Wanted’ Terrorists; No Reward Offered for His Capture

Anwar al-Awlaki, the U.S.-born Islamic cleric who in a new video clip urges Muslims to kill American civilians, does not appear on the FBI’s list of wanted terrorists and the government has yet to place a reward on his head.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Sunday the U.S. was “actively” hunting for Awlaki, who “supports al-Qaeda’s agenda of murder and violence.”

“We are actively trying to find him and many others throughout the world that seek to do our country and to do our interests great harm,” he said on the CBS program “Face the Nation.”
