Just over a year ago I broke the story exclusively here at PJ Media about Anwar al-Awlaki’s appearance leading Friday afternoon prayers inside the U.S. Capitol following the 9/11 attacks. As Fox News later reported, Anwar al-Awlaki was not the only terror-tied Al-Qaeda cleric leading prayers for the Congressional Muslim Staff Association.

Here’s a short follow-up report that my colleague Erick Stakelbeck did that includes video footage of Awlaki leading prayers for congressional Muslim staffers (which also included then-CAIR official and now convicted terror operative Randall “Ismail” Royer) shot for a PBS documentary called, “Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet“:
