An American calls to “Jihad”

CNN has broadcasted a new audio made by Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born Muslim cleric with links to several terrorist plots. In the audio, a voice similar to Mr. Awlaki’s says: “with the American invasion of Iraq and continued U.S. aggression against Muslims, I could not reconcile between living in the U.S. and being a Muslim, and I eventually came to the conclusion that jihad against America is binding upon myself just as it is binding on every other Muslim.” Mr. Awlaki, born in New Mexico, left the US to live and work in Yemen in 2002.
