apparently al-awlaki actually did have dinner at the pentagon after 9/11?

Thought it would be some conspiracy theory, but apparently a lot of reputable sources are picking it up, (fox, cbs, etc.)

Wondering what you think of it, seems sort of sketchy to me. I'm generally not one for conspiracy theories but i'm not sure what to make of this.

Update:

edit: the sketchy part is that they don't run better background checks before inviting people over to the pentagon

    He was seen at the time as a moderate Muslim who could help relations between an outraged country and a religion that many now saw as an enemy. Turns out, he was one of the lunatics and now he's having dinner in Hell. It's a pretty simple story really, not sure what you think is "sketchy" there.

    Just as a reply to the person who says he was not known 'to be a member of Al Quada at that time' and was simply a 'moderate muslim'.

    I've got to ask, since when does being a 'moderate muslim' constitute getting to have dinner at the Pentagon? I seriously doubt that is the case.

    edit: Also, while it is true that saying there is any conspiracies going on here is merely speculation - it is also true that to say there was nothing going on here is also a speculation, as neither positions have any proof to say otherwise.

    I'd hope that the US has the capabilities to know if they were letting a future terrorist into the Pentagon (!!). I personally get the feeling something fishy was going on, I'm not sure what though, and of course - no proof.

    My initial thoughts are "so what"?

    If true this does not by itself prove anything one way or another. There are many reasons why he might have been invited to meet at the Pentagon and without that context everything is mere speculation.

  • He was an Imam at a Falls Church Islamic Center at that time. I won't be surprised if he visited the Pentagon since everyone around the area was bending over backwards to prove that they held no hostility toward Islam.

    I'm going to show you two Fox news reports on this, but first let's look at what this precedent means for us. See this:

    Now for the FOX videos on the Pentagon dinner. If you watch the two short videos below your head will be spinning so you better sit down:

    Fox News, CBS, etc; it's admitted. But you can expect those mainline corporate news agencies to water down the truth by saying it was a meeting for peace or some similar bull.

    It's admitted that the underwear bomber was let on the plane, without a passport, by the state department. It's all a fraud. Give up your liberties for security is the name of the game.

    The question I would be asking, was he known to be a member of Al Quada at that time? According to the story as i read it, it was not known. He was considered a moderate in the muslim community.
