US-born radical cleric added to terror blacklist

File - This Oct. 2008 file photo by Muhammad ud-Deen shows Imam Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen. The Obama administration has added the U.S.-born, al-Qaida-linked cleric accused of helping to plan the failed Christmas Day airline bombing to a terrorism blacklist, targeting him with sanctions aimed at cutting off his financial support. The Treasury Department placed Anwar al-Awlaki on its list of Specially Designated Global Terrorists on Friday. That would aim to freeze his assets, bar Americans from sending him money and ban him from traveling to the U.S. (AP Photo/Muhammad ud-Deen, File) ** MANDATORY CREDIT NO SALES **
