New documents show a connection between radical American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and the men who carried out the terrorist attacks of 9/11/01.  Within days of the attacks, the FBI suspected he had purchased tickets for the hijackers.

FOX's Catherine Herridge reports from Washington:

According to newly-released, heavily-redacted FBI records - exclusively reviewed by FOX News and obtained by Judicial Watch - the Bureau's investigation of al-Awlaki's VISA transactions showed purchases for a Mohammed Atta on August 13th, 2001 for an American West Airlines flight from Washington DC to Las Vegas to Miami.

According to the joint Congressional inquiry into 9/11, this was one of Atta's final, crucial surveillance flights.  The records also list the names of Satam al-Suqami and a W. al-Sheri, they appear to be muscle hijackers.
