"Azzam the American" Captured in Pakistan (?); Who Do We Pay?


Evidently, the American-born al Qa'ida operative who was arrested in Karachi today was not / not Adam Gadahn, AKA "Azzam the American."


According to Pakistan's Dawn News:

KARACHI: Pakistani security forces along with help of US intelligence arrested Abu Yahya Mujahdeen Al- Adam, who is a close associate of Osama Bin Laden. Abu Yahya was arrested on Sunday from an area surrounding the super highway, on the outskirts of Karachi.

The Associated Press is also reporting the arrest of Adam Yahiye Gadahn, the native American who became al Qa'ida's spokesman to the English-speaking world and who is under indictment in the United States for treason. So it might be true, but we should wait for official confirmation of his identity.

The arrest occurred on the same day Gadahn's latest video was posted to militant web sites.

Here's a profile of Gadahn that helps to put the twisted freak into perspective.

Assuming the man in custody in Karachi is really Gadahn, it looks like the Department of State might owe someone one million dollars.
