Fort Hood

Did Hasan Know 9/11 Hijackers?

Major Nidal Nalik Hasan may not have been carrying out a terrorist plot when he allegedly attacked Fort Hood, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t rubbed shoulders with those who have: Hasan apparently attended the same mosque as two 9/11 hijackers, hosting his mother’s funeral there at the time they attended. A radical imam, Anwar Aulaqi, led the Dar al Hirjah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Virginia at the time. It is unclear whether Hasan had contact with hijackers Nawaf al-Hazmi and Hani Hanjour.
