A news story in Pakistan’s Daily Times reports that American al Qaeda, Adam Gadahn (Abu Azzam Amriki), was detained with another unnamed Arab individual connected to al Qaeda in November. There have been similar reports of Gadahn’s capture before that have proven to be false, so we remain guardedly optimistic this time. No U.S. officials, or other news sources have confirmed the report.
The raids in Sohrab Goth areas last November resulted because of a call intercepted by a local FBI station in Karachi, which intercepted the communication and as per an agreement informed the Pakistani authorities. It should be noted that from the same, Sorab Goth area, an American al Qaeda member, Adam Gadahn (Abu Azzam Amriki), was detained with another unnamed Arab individual connected to al Qaeda. Adam and an associate are reported to have been captured during a raid by Pakistani special forces at the Super Highway in Karachi. While the arrests had been kept secret, a top intelligence source told Daily Times that some al Qaeda members had been captured and moved to their headquarters in Islamabad, where “a joint investigation team of both Pakistanis and Americans are interrogating them”.
