Summary:

Judicial Watch used FOIA to obtain Federal Bureau of Investigation records which tracked activities of Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen who joined Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and was killed by a September 2011 drone strike; the monitoring included detailed information about his visits with prostitutes in America, and the Bureau even considered possible legal charges.

Notes:

One of the FBI documents, a heavily-redacted note from February 4, 2002, described al-Awlaki as a member of a terrorist organization; as Judicial Watch noted, al-Awlaki spoke at a Pentagon luncheon the next day.
