Sit down, stop cheering! It's not Bush.
Instead, our government is charging 28 year-old Adam Gadhan with this most serious of Constititional crimes. I'll admit it -- I too was unaware this most dangerous man was walking the earth, free to bring down America with his . . . through his nefarious . . . umm, what'd he do again? He "appeared in five videos broadcast between October 2004 and September 11, 2006."
Appeared in videos. In fact, according to the article, Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty told reporters that, "Gadahn appeared to be involved only in propaganda for [Al Qaeda], not in planning any attacks."
Now I'll admit, I don't care what happens to this jackass. He can rot in hell as far as I care. If he thinks his life is better living under sharia in some shithole in the hills of Pakistan, he's more than entitled to do so. And should a bomb or bullet -- originating from West or East -- find his heart, well that wouldn't cause me to lose a wink of sleep.
That said, who the hell are we kidding here? The kid's been out of the country for years. He clearly doesn't see himself as an American anymore. He's not a traitor, he emigrated! And now he's on "the other side." Who cares about him? Nonetheless, "the FBI added him on Wednesday to its list of the most wanted terrorists and a U.S. State Department program offered up to a $1 million reward for information leading to his arrest."
As always, your federal tax dollars hard at work.
And if I may say so, ain't there another guy in the mountains of Pakistan we should be a little more hyped on finding? Good grief.
