Updates on Nidal Malik HasanThere were two items of note in the weekend papers. The first is an exchange between Hasan and an acquaintance that clarifies why this case belongs on this site:
"Jihad means an inner struggle, fighting against corruption and injustice."
The second item comes from The Telegraph. It's a bit sensational and no one else has reported this, so take it with a grain of salt for now, but:
Hasan, the sole suspect in the massacre of 13 fellow US soldiers in Texas, attended the controversial Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Great Falls, Virginia, in 2001 at the same time as two of the September 11 terrorists, The Sunday Telegraph has learnt. His mother's funeral was held there in May that year.
Anwar Awlaki is a figure of high-interest to the violent jihad movement. I'll be discussing him in some detail in my book.

Their smart, granular analysis is a bracing antidote to both facile dismissals and wild exaggerations... a nuanced and readable account of the ideological and organizational origins of the group." -- Washington Post
