From the AP:

A radical Yemeni cleric who was in contact with the suspected US army base shooter may also have ties to the failed attack on a US-bound plane at Christmas, a top White House aide said Sunday. ...US Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Adviser John Brennan accused the cleric, Anwar al-Awlaqi, of trying to "instigate terrorism" due to his alleged links to the two events...."I think what we are
