An Al Qaeda leader who is one of the most wanted men in the world was invited for lunch at the Pentagon in the aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks, a new report has claimed.
New documents have been obtained which apparently detail how Anwar Al-Awlaki, the first American on the CIA's kill or capture list, rubbed shoulders with high-ranking military personnel just months after the atrocities.
They have also found innovative ways to funnel money to their so-called enemy of the "War on Terror."
The US paid an al Qaeda foot soldier a £17 million reward for the capture of terror mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed - including a £1.2 million bonus to relocate to Britain, it was reported today.
The Libyan Al Qaeda has been on the payroll of British intelligence since at least 1996.
One of the goals of all this funding is to shape and shove the food "revolutions" across the Middle East into a radical Sunni alliance to support a war against Shiite Iran.
