Anwar al-Awlaki, reportedly killed in Yemen, joins list of terrorists with Colorado connections
Anwar al-Awlaki, a cleric with alleged ties to the Fort Hood shootings and the underwear bomber, was reportedly killed in Yemen, but his death strikes close to home. Born in New Mexico, he attended Colorado State, where he studied civil engineering and attended a mosque near campus. As such, he's another terrorist with Colorado ties, joins a list of ten we assembled for the 9/11 anniversary. See the entire roster below.
10. Zacarias Moussaoui.
Often referred to as the twentieth hijacker, Moussaoui was accused of having been a replacement for any of the nineteen participants in the 9/11 attacks who could not fulfill their lethal duties. The French citizen was convicted of conspiracy, sentenced to life without parole, and sent to Supermax.
