It's not terrorism

Update: The decline and fall of U.S. journalism

Sometimes it seems that no story is too big for the U.S. lame-stream media to spin wrong in order to protect President Barack Obama. In this case, a major event of domestic terrorism -- the worst since 9/11 -- is pawned off as ... something else.

It falls to the foreign press to get it right.

Major Nidal Malik Hasan worshipped at a mosque led by a radical imam said to be a "spiritual adviser" to three of the hijackers who attacked America on Sept 11, 2001.

Hasan, the sole suspect in the massacre of 13 fellow US soldiers in Texas, attended the controversial Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Great Falls, Virginia, in 2001 at the same time as two of the September 11 terrorists, The Sunday Telegraph has learnt. His mother's funeral was held there in May that year.

The preacher at the time was Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born Yemeni scholar who was banned from addressing a meeting in London by video link in August because he is accused of supporting attacks on British troops and backing terrorist organisations.
