Only one person in the United States -- Zacarias Moussaoui, the so-called 20th hijacker -- has been tried and convicted for the murder of over 3,000 Americans. But, as you will see, there were others -- some still living here -- who helped 19 men fly planes into the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
Fox News reveals new details of a support network, here in America for decades.
In this shocking special, we investigate the associates of the 9/11 terrorists, including American-born cleric Anwar Awlaki, who is now on the CIA's capture or kill list. By digging deep into thousands of government records from the 9/11 Commission, the Congressional Joint Inquiry and the FBI, Fox News fills in some of the blanks about who really helped the hijackers across America.
And, in a Fox News exclusive, why was Anwar Awlaki invited to the Pentagon for lunch after 9/11 when the FBI knew of his relationship with three of the hijackers aboard American Airlines Flight 77?

"They weren't murderers or anything; they had merely stolen more money than most people can rationally conceive of, from their own customers, in a few blinks of an eye. But then they went one step further. They came to Washington, took an oath before Congress, and lied about it.Thanks to an extraordinary investigative effort by a Senate subcommittee that unilaterally decided to take up the burden the criminal justice system has repeatedly refused to shoulder, we now know exactly what Goldman Sachs executives like Lloyd Blankfein and Daniel Sparks lied about. We know exactly how they and other top Goldman executives, including David Viniar and Thomas Montag, defrauded their clients. America has been waiting for a case to bring against Wall Street. Here it is, and the evidence has been gift-wrapped and left at the doorstep of federal prosecutors, evidence that doesn't leave much doubt: Goldman Sachs should stand trial..." http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/the-people-vs-goldman-sachs-2011051...
TSA defends frisking of baby at KC airport
By BILL DRAPER Associated Press
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Federal officials insisted Wednesday that screeners at Kansas City International Airport were just doing their jobs when they frisked a baby, an incident that gained worldwide attention after a pastor posted a cellphone picture of the pat-down on Twitter.
The baby's stroller set off an alert of possible traces of explosives Saturday, so the screeners were justified in taking a closer look at the boy cradled in his mother's arms, said Nick Kimball, a spokesman for the Transportation Security Administration.
The Rev. Jacob Jester, an Independence evangelist who snapped the photo Saturday after he cleared security for a flight to Albuquerque, N.M., said it didn't sit right with him to see the baby being patted down. He said he thought the boy was about 8 months old.
After taking the picture, he posted it on the social networking site Twitter, commenting that the search was "extreme." His wife and another pastor also posted it, and soon it was a cyberspace hit with more than 300,000 viewers. It eventually made it onto such websites as The Drudge Report and London Daily Mail, sparking complaints from many readers that the TSA's actions crossed the line.
"That was definitely a surprise," Jester said of the reaction to the photo. "I didn't expect to get all the attention I've garnered from that picture."
He said the woman whose baby was patted down contacted him later, and he apologized profusely for drawing all of the attention to her and her child.
"I apologized left and right," he said. "I said, 'I regret that I tweeted the picture in the first place. But she was laughing the whole thing off.'"
Jester, who has an 8-month-old son of his own, declined to disclose the woman's name or any contact information.
The Kansas City airport is one of 16 in the U.S. that uses private screeners, instead of those provided by the TSA, Kimball said, but private screeners follow government guidelines.
"Less than 3 percent of all passengers get pat-downs at the checkpoint," Kimball said.
The hubbub surrounding the Kansas City incident is similar to a story last month about a 6-year-old girl who was patted down at an airport in New Orleans.
The girl's mother, Selena Drexel, said she asked why her daughter was selected for a pat-down, but was not given a reason. Drexel and her husband uploaded the video of the screening onto YouTube, generating huge national interest and prompting sharp criticism from a congressman involved in national security issues.2011-05-12 04:05:05 GMT
"by Michael BoldinRound two of the battle for travel freedom is well underway. The first round, which garnered national attention in the fall of 2010, focused primarily on the TSA implementing new procedures…pat downs, body scanners….and the public outcry against it….boycotts, protests, calling congress to demand change. But, as the public response failed to stop the scanners and searches, round two has moved to state legislatures around the country. Most prominently, Texas, where the state house just passed a bill banning TSA searches without probable cause. Click here to read the Tenth Amendment Center’s report on the bill. This time, the TSA is on the defensive, and published an official statement about the Texas bill on their blog: 'What’s our take on the Texas House of Representatives voting to ban the current TSA pat-down? Well, the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution (Article. VI. Clause 2) prevents states from regulating the federal government.' The problem here? The statement is false. Ignorance from the TSA is unlikely, so I’ll call a spade a spade. They’re lying. The supremacy clause says nothing of the sort..." http://www.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2011/05/14/in-public-statement-tsa-lies-a...
