The outreach director for the northern Virginia mosque where the suspected Fort Hood shooter sometimes attended prayer services said on Monday that Maj. Nidal Hasan was not an active member. Imam Johari Abdul-Malik of the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church also denounced statements from a radical American imam living in Yemen who praised Hasan as a hero on his personal Web site Monday. Abdul-Malik said the imam, Anwar al Awlaki, was employed by the mosque from January 2001 to April 2002. Staff members observed Hasan attend prayer services occasionally at the mosque following his mother's death in 2001, said Abdul-Malik. He added they noticed Hasan being "disoriented" and distant.
