Born and raised in the U.S., Anwar al-Alwaki was once profiled on American television as a moderate Muslim.  Then he became one of a handful of al-Qaeda figures rising to fill the void left by the death of Osama Bin Laden.  Terence McKenna tells the story of Anwar al-Awlaki, once considered the greatest terrorist threat to the United States.

Awlaki was killed in Yemen by a joint CIA-U.S. military air strike on Friday, September 30, 2011.
