    Five years after Anwar al-Awlaki was killed by an American drone strike, he keeps inspiring acts of terror. Investigators say a bomb that rocked New York a week ago, injuring more than two dozen people, was the latest in a long line of incidents in which the attackers were inspired by al-Awlaki, an American imam who became an al-Qaida propagandist.
