  • — Anwar al-Awlaki, the notorious Al Qaeda cleric believed to be hiding in Yemen and the lone American on the U.S. government’s capture or kill list, who conducted a prayer service on Capitol Hill shortly after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.  

    — Randall “Ismail” Royer, a former communications associate for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), who confessed in 2004 to receiving jihadist training in Pakistan. He is serving a 20-year prison term.

    Andre Carson just won Election for Congress in Center Township in Indianapolis. The Republican running against him was highly criticized for bringing up Carson's ties to Terrorist groups. Carson won anyway.
