    A U.S. counter-terrorism official says the CIA is looking into reports of Adam Gadahn's capture, but could not immediately confirm his arrest.

    Reporting from Islamabad, Pakistan - Pakistani intelligence sources in Karachi said Sunday that security forces in the southern port city have arrested Adam Gadahn, a Southern California native who became a top propagandist for Al Qaeda and is wanted by the U.S. on treason charges.



    A U.S. counter-terrorism official said later that the CIA and other agencies "are looking into reports" of Gadahn's capture, but could not immediately confirm his arrest.

    If it's really him, I certainly hope we let the Pakistanis interrogate and try him first.

    After he's gotten the full treatment from the peaceful and humane Islamic society he so admires, we can try what's left.

    If Pakistan tortures him, and I criticize that particular Islamic Republic, does that make me an Islamaphobe?

    Damn. It's the politically correct version of a dead end.

    Or, to use the lingo, a "life-challenged completion of a non-denominational pathway."

    Nope. There is nothing wrong with criticizing a government, nation, or religion when they are in the wrong. If someone calls you an "Islamaphobe" or some other word it is probably because they have already lost the debate... and need to resort to insults.

    After listening to the son of the Hamas leader's son on Fox last night, if you're not an Islamophobe you should be.
