Adam Gadahn, the American Al Qaeda Terrorist, (Azzam the American) Captured in Pakistan (Update: Nope, Not Him)
Adam Gadhan, aka Azzam the American has been arrested in Pakistan. Adam Gadhan, the Californian Al Qaeda leader has long been sought and on Washington’s Most Wanted list has according to The Dawn captured in Karachi, Pakistan!
Adam Gadhan, aka Azzam the American captured!!!
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.
Sources confirmed that the arrested militant commander has been shifted to Islamabad for further investigation.
The story was initially sketchy as to whether Adam Gadhan, aka Azzam the American and the rest of his alias had been captured. Looks like the reports are being confirmed by news sources.
The CIA does not have a handy Top Ten list of wanted terrorists; hopefully, they want them all. The FBI does have a list of its top wanted terrorists, though, and has this listing for Gadahn:
Aliases: Abu Suhayb Al-Amriki, Abu Suhail Al-Amriki, Abu Suhayb, Yihya Majadin Adams, Adam Pearlman, Yayah, Azzam the American, Azzam Al-Amriki
Now please, please can we bring back waterboarding and make this treasonous bastard talk and give up everything he knows. Looks like we are not alone in our want for the return of waterboarding, the Astute Blogger is on the same page.
A note to President Barack Hussein Obama, this would be what we in the real world call a victory in the WAR ON TERROR not an overseas contingency plan.
An intelligence source confirmed the report to NBC News, adding that Gadahn was detained in Sohrab Goth, a suburb of Karachi, and was later moved to the capital Islamabad.
The arrest is a major victory in the U.S.-led battle against al-Qaida and will be taken as a sign that Pakistan is cooperating more fully with Washington. It follows the recent detentions of several Afghan Taliban commanders in Karachi.
It appears that the confirmed reports were not so confirmed, hold the champagne. CBS is now reporting that the capture was not of Gadahn, but another important Taliban militant.
“In the light of our latest information, I can say, this is not looking like Gadahn. But it is still the arrest of an important Taliban militant,” said the Pakistani security official who spoke to CBS News late Sunday.
Although as per Hot Air, it seems to be all up in the air as to who was really arrested in Pakistan. Some media outlets are stilling going with Gadahan.
