U.S.-Born Qaeda Operative Captured

It looks like the California native and al Qaeda spokeman Adam Gadahn, who was reportedly arrested by Pakistani officials, is still at large. It emerged Sunday that his name was confused with the name of the al Qaeda operative who was actually arrested, Abu Yahya Mujahdeen Al-Adam, after the Associated Press and Reuters had already reported Gadahn’s capture. Not much is known about Al-Adam’s background, though he is believed to be connected to al Qaeda’s operations division and in command of fighters. He was born in Pennsylvania. Gadahn, the spokesman, has been on the FBI’s most wanted list since 2004 with a $1 million reward, and is officially accused of treason.
