Anwar Al-Awlaki may be the first American on the CIA's kill or capture list, but he was also a lunch guest of military brass at the Pentagon within months of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, Fox News has learned.
Documents exclusively obtained by Fox News, including an FBI interview conducted after the Fort Hood shooting in November 2009, state that Awlaki was taken to the Pentagon as part of the military’s outreach to the Muslim community in the immediate aftermath of the attacks.
Collins said he believed the event was sponsored by the office of the Secretary of Defense. A spokeswoman there said she would look into it and get back to Fox News.
A former high-ranking FBI agent told Fox News that at the time Awlaki went to lunch at the Pentagon, there was tremendous "arrogance" about the vetting process at the Pentagon.
"They vetted people politically and showed indifference toward security and intelligence advice of others," the former agent said.
Curious... Why is the office of the SoD conducting an outreach program a few weeks after 9/11? Is it Rumsfeld's role to mend fences and host luncheons out one side of his mouth, and propagate fear, fraud, vengeance and hostility out the other? Very strange.

Re: FOX Exclusive: Al Qaeda leader dined at Pentagon just months after 9/11
Yeah the vain attempt to couch extremist as 'moderate' muslims was a mojor failing of the Bush administration.They should have challenged Imam's to denounce terrorist attacks and any who didn't should be denounced themselves instead being invited to dinner and having their butts kissed.
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."
