Sunday Sign of Hope October 15th 2006

American charged with treason for alleged al-Qaeda ties

Here's a kid who took the whole "teenage-rebellion" thing WAY WAY out of control. I hope he one day faces these charges.


As a teenager, Adam Yedihe Gadahn appeared to be on a spiritual quest.

The 28-year-old American charged Wednesday with treason for allegedly aiding al-Qaida was raised in a largely nonreligious household. At one point he dabbled with demonic heavy metal music and later studied Christianity.

Still in his teens, he abandoned both, walking into an Orange County mosque in the 1990s and pronouncing his devotion to Islam.

“I can't say when I actually decided that Islam was for me. It was really a natural progression,” he wrote on a Web site in 1995, when he was 17 years old. “I knew well that they were not the bloodthirsty, barbaric terrorists that the news media and the televangelists paint them to be.”

Now, Mr. Gadahn stands accused of joining al-Qaeda and appearing in its propaganda videos, including one in which he declared, “America's streets will run red with blood.”

The California native is a fugitive, believed to be somewhere in or near Pakistan. His case marks the first time a charge of treason has been used in the U.S. war on terrorism.

Sorry to say this, but with a name like Adam Yedihe Gadahn, he is not an American.

If a dog is born in a stable, it does not make it a horse.
