Adam Gadahn, American Taliban, is going to be tried for Treason in absentia. The evidence against him is overwhelming, and I don’t see how the prosecution can fail. That is unless the ACLU gets involved. Reuters Story:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A California-born convert to Islam, accused of making a series of al Qaeda propaganda videos, became on Wednesday the first American charged with treason since the World War Two era, U.S. Justice Department officials said.
Fugitive Adam Gadahn, 28, who is believed to be in Pakistan, was accused of treason, which carries a maximum punishment of death, and providing material support to al Qaeda, they said.
According to the charges, Gadahn appeared in five videos broadcast between October 2004 and September 11, 2006, giving al Qaeda “aid and comfort … with the intent to betray the United States.”
Don’t be surprised to see people protesting outside the trial, and expect to see Kefiyahs, HAMAS T-Shirts, and the usual signs of anti-Jewish bigotry there.
