Thoughts on the military and military activities of a diverse nature. Free-ranging and eclectic.

This is coolbert:

Adam Gadahn. A/k/a Azzam al Amriki [Azzam the American].

A terribly troubled and disaffected young American man who has followed, unfortunately, in the footsteps of Iva Toguri, Mildred Gillars, William Joyce, and John Amery.

A person who has cast his lot with the worst of the worst. The terrorists of Al Qaeda. A convert to Islam who has totally and apparently without reservations become a confidant and "translator" for Osama bin Laden.

A young man who makes propaganda videos that are broadcast the whole world over.

A disaffected young man who has committed treasonous acts and continues to do so.

As a propagandist, Adam/Azzam does a poor job. Those videos of his are poorly done. Adam/Azzam is not a good speaker and presents himself poorly. His efforts are more or less for naught. He must think he is doing "good" for his cause. But he is only hurting himself and getting in deeper and deeper. He cannot go much deeper at any rate, he is so far down to begin with.

Reading of the Adam/Azzam's upbringing, he appears to be from a family that is devolving. Grandfather was a surgeon, father was more or less a hippie, and Adam/Azzam is well on the road to oblivion.

"Gadahn was born Adam Gadahn, the son of musician Phil Pearlman. Pearlman changed his surname before Adam's birth. Gadahn's family raised and butchered goats in accordance with halal food requirements for sale to Muslim groceries on a farm in Riverside County, California. Gadahn's Jewish grandfather, Carl Pearlman, was a prominent surgeon and on the Board of Directors of the Anti-Defamation League."

My intuition tells me that Adam/Azzam is just plain ordinary troubled. Was looking for "something" and found that "thing" in Islam. Superficially a Muslim, but inside, not really sure of ANYTHING.

Likes the exoticness of his new "culture" and religion. Wears the turban or dress of the Taureg for these videos, so as to appear mysterious and alien. Thinks he is impressing everyone, when he is not.

Only ends up looking like a fool that he is. Headed for a bad end. Maybe on the eventual receiving end of a Hellfire missile.

He will not be missed!!

Adam, if you read this by any chance, please turn yourself in and cooperate before it is too late.
