Reports: U.S. Drones Target al-Awlaki

A U.S. drone attack in Yemen on Thursday missed its target, the U.S.-born radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, according to media reports.

The Wall Street Journal cites U.S. and Yemeni officials as sources, and the targeting comes just five days after a U.S. special forces team killed Osama bin Laden, enemy No. 1 of the United States, wanted for his role as the archictect of terrorist campaigns against America. 

Awlaki heads al-Qaida in Yemen and has been linked, through emails, to Nidal Hassan, the U.S. Army officer accused of killing 13 people at Fort Hood, Texas, as well as to Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a Nigerian national accused of trying to blow up a plane headed for Detroit on Christmas Day.
