The United States is hunting for American-born Yemeni cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Sunday.

The radical cleric is calling for the killing of American civilians in a new video released Sunday by Yemen-based Al Qaeda offshoot, Al Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula.

The White House spokesman told CBS' “Face the Nation” that despite calling himself a cleric, Awlaki “supports Al Qaeda's agenda of murder and violence.”

“The president to graduates at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point said that members of Al Qaeda are small men who will be on the wrong side of history,” Gibbs said, referring to President Obama's commencement address on Saturday.
