Adam Gadahn as featured on the FBIâ€™s Most Wanted List
Months of attacks by unmanned US predator aircraft have caused carnage among the middle ranks of terrorist leaders in the lawless lands along the border with Afghanistan, where al-Qa’eda remains dangerous despite suffering a serious defeat in Iraq.
Their victims have included experienced Arab leaders and, it is now thought, Adam Gadahn, a former heavy-metal fan and so-called “killer computer nerd” originally from California. Nothing has been heard from him for months, leading intelligence experts to conclude that he may be dead.
Mr Gadahn has been credited with helping transform al-Qa’eda’s al-Sahab propaganda wing into a slick operation which communicates in fluent English and produces professional quality DVDs, including one for Osama bin Laden last year.
But he may have fallen victim to an expanded programme of predator assassinations which in the last year has targeted and killed many of al-Qa’eda’s military commanders, terrorist trainers and facilitators.
So, who knows?
Perhaps Gadahn will surface like he did in January this year in the video depicted below:
Perhaps, Adam Gadahn has QUIT Al Qaeda or been demoted to front line suicide bomber. In any event, Americans will remember his support of Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden and should he resurface pursue him like the treasonous criminal he is.
