Obama removed Times Square Bomber from Terrorist watch list

Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit is reporting that Faisal Shahzad had had contact with the Mumbi Massacre mastermind and radical American-born Muslim cleric Anwar Awlaki and was removed from the DHS Terror watch list some time after Obama took office.
ABC reported:

Shahzad also had a web of jihadist contacts that included big names tied to terror attacks in the U.S. and abroad, including the figure who has emerged as a central figure in many recent domestic terror attempts – radical American-born Muslim cleric Anwar Awlaki.

Besides Awlaki, sources say Shahzad was also linked to a key figure in the Pakistani Taliban, its Emir Beitullah Mehsud, who was killed in a drone missile strike in 2009. The Mehsuds had been family friends of Shahzad, who is the son of a former high-ranking Pakistani military officer.
