American Al Qaeda Spokesman Killed by U.S.



U.S.-born Al Qaeda leader Adam Gadahn was killed in a drone strike in Pakistan in January, Obama administration officials announced on Thursday. Gadahn-who was raised Christian and whose grandfather served on the board of directors for the Anti-Defamation League-served as a spokesman for the terrorist group after moving to Pakistan in 1998. He converted to Islam as a teenager living in California.

Through Abu Zubaydah, one of Osama bin Laden’s close advisers, Gadahn is believed to have come into the inner circle of Bin Laden himself. Some of his early work for Al Qaeda includes English-language translations of Bin Laden’s addresses. Read more at the Wall Street Journal.
