Prostitution And Jihad: The Double Life Of Anwar al-Awlaki

It looks like Anwar Al-Awlaki, spiritual advisor to a slew of jihadists from Nidal Hassan to the Detroit underwear bomber Abdulmuttalab, was a naughty boy prior to inspiring jihad in others.

According to a report on Fox news, the feds just released a mug shot of al-Awlaki for soliciting prostitution in the mid 1990s while he was Imam of the Rabat Mosque in San Diego. Yes, our holy man Anwar was preaching the virtuous Islamic life during the day and hitting the pros at night. He apparently was also arrested for the same thing in Virginia more than 4 years later. Because of a plea agreement he was never prosecuted, although he did perform some community service, given a small fine and forced to get tested for HIV.

As Fox news reporter Catherine Herridge questions, what took so long for this information to be released, particularly in light of the fact that the man is such an inspiration to so many?

Who knows if he's getting any in Yemen, but I'm sure he's probably finding a way. Old habits die hard.

What a hypocrite!

Whether he is getting any or not in Yemen is rather clear-cut: the goats are aplenty over there, I hear ;-)
