All American Al Qaeda Look the Same, Apparently


Though Pakistani intelligence sources got everyone all excited about the capture of Al Qaeda’s American-born spokesman, Californian Adam Gadahn, on Sunday, such reports are now believed to be incorrect. The “fair-skinned” American Al Qaeda member who was recently captured in Karachi was a different guy — according to the Times, a Pennsylvania native “who was thought to be affiliated with the operations division of Al Qaeda, commanding fighters in Afghanistan.” But we guess they all look alike to you, Pakistan. A little respect, please, for our disgraced traitors. [NYT, AP]
