American-Born al Qaeda Arrested

In a major victory in the U.S.-led battle against al Qaeda, two officers claim Pakistani intelligence agents have arrested American-born al Qaeda spokesman Adam Gadahn. The arrest was made in the southern city of Karachi and is a sign of confidence that Pakistan is committed to aiding Washington in its effort against terror. According to the FBI, Gadahn moved to Pakistan in 1998, where he attended an al Qaeda training camp six years later. With a $1 million reward to his name, Gadahn continued to post messages calling for the destruction of the West, the most recent of which praised the Fort Hood shooter and urged other Muslims to follow suit. According to the Associated Press, “A U.S. court charged Gadahn with treason in 2006, making him the first American to face such a charge in more than 50 years. He could face the death penalty if convicted.”
