A White House official sent an in-person thank you, along with a written message from President Obama, praising the mosque that Oklahoma beheading suspect Alton Nolen (Jah’Keem Yisrael) frequented.

Nolen had attended the Greater Islamic Society of Oklahoma City, a mosque in which the imam and other congregants have tried to establish distance from this story.

The previous imam at the Oklahoma City mosque in which Nolen attended however, Suhaib Webb, had been labeled by the FBI as a “known confidant of Al Qaeda mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki.”
