A report of contact with al-Awlaki since the underwear attack

In Yemen.

Robert F. Worth at New York Times

Excerpt --
Mr. Awlaki said he had met and spoken with the Nigerian suspect, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, in Yemen last fall, according to the journalist, Abdulelah Hider Sha’ea, who played a digital recording of the cleric’s comments for this reporter.

Update 2 February: Sha'ea has sold Anwar's latest batch of threats to al-Jazeera. This is Sha'ea's personal website.

Update 7 February: To the suprise of nobody, al-Jazeera is now broadcasting al-Awlaki's terrorist rhetoric and incitement. As I predicted, al-Awlaki has suddenly become less mealy-mouthed and more overtly vicious.
