    I suspect he's got a few charges to face in Pakistan before they extradite him. Personally, I don't believe in capital punishment for any crimes so.... I hope he stays in Pakistani gaols for a long, long time. I'm pretty confident they will be significantly nastier that American gaols.

    Who knows a bit of background? Who is he? Where's he from? Why'd he turn into a f**knut?

    BBC News - Pakistan 'detains al-Qaeda commander'

    Anyone know anything about this Abu Yahya Azam?

    He is still an American just not as important.


    U.S.-Born al Qaeda Arrest News Incorrect - CBS News

    The New York Times, sourcing American and Pakistani officials, reports that the man arrested was Abu Yahya Mujahdeen Al-Adam, and describes him as an al Qaeda commander who was born in Pennsylvania.

    Western diplomats in Islamabad, responding to the latest twist to this increasingly confusing saga, said the arrest is not insignificant. "Even if this is not Adam Gadahn, it is still not an unimportant development. But let's hold our breath before we come to a final conclusion. We may be groping in the dark 'til someone, especially the Pakistanis who are holding this man, agree to present him publicly," said one western diplomat in Islamabad who spoke to CBS News on condition of anonymity.

    I know he's going to Islamabad for interrogation.
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    For the record, Adam Gadahn has already been indicted (in 2006).

    Gadahn was indicted based on the testimony of the FBI case agent E.J. Hilbert II, in the Southern Division of the United States District Court for the Central District of California by a federal grand jury for the capital crime of treason for aiding an enemy of the United States (i.e. Al-Qaeda).

    Are you refering to the innocent people who have been released only to rejoin the jihad and return to the battlefield?

    So you are saying yes to my question?
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    No im referring to people like this. How I fought to survive Guantánamo | World news | The Guardian

    The truth about Guantánamo | Moazzam Begg | Comment is free | guardian.co.uk

    Certainly not amusing but by no means neutered either.
