Fat Bastard Adam Gadahn Killed in US Drone Strike
Al-Qaeda leader Ahmed Farouq, who was an American citizen, was also killed in the operation that killed the two innocent hostages.Our thoughts go out to the families of the innocent hostages.
Adam Gadahn, another American who joined al-Qaeda, was also killed by U.S. forces in the region, "likely in a separate" counterterrorism operation, Earnest said in the statement.
American officials at the time had "no reason to believe either hostage was present" when the raid was launched on a compound in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region.
One of the hostages killed in the operation was Warren Weinstein, an American held hostage by al Qaeda since 2011. The other hostage, Giovanni Lo Porto, was Italian and had been held by al-Qaeda since 2012.
We last saw Adam in an al-Qaeda propaganda video in November 2014.
But if Adam Gadhan is dead, this is the time at Jawa Report when we dance.
He's dead Jim!
When it comes to the Cyber Jihad the damage Adam did was immeasurable, you might consider him the founder of the Online Jihad in English. He basically was as-Sahab Media in English. Good riddance.
f Osama bin Laden was the founding force behind Al Qaeda, then Adam Gadahn was perhaps its leading American voice.
“Because Gadahn was a spokesman and not an operational planner, his death will have little practical bearing on Al Qaeda’s terrorist operations,” said an assessment issued on Thursday by Stratfor, a geopolitical risk analysis company. “However, it is quite telling that As Sahab media has been uncharacteristically silent in 2015.”

The Real Reason Behind Mediterranean Refugee Crisis Islamic Terrorism
People just aren't just drowning in the Mediterranean Sea because they are "Most Africans" I'm looking at you NPR.
Its the Systematic elimination of Christians. Not to mention any Muslim who refuses to join the terrorists who are seeking to escape on a mass exodus from ISIS terror.
Grymay Tesfamical lifts his shirt to show a scar on his back, the mark of the bullet he dodged.
The 18-year-old former student said he was traveling with a group of fellow Eritreans on two buses when they were intercepted by 10 armed ISIS fighters, just south of Tripoli.
"Two buses were surrounded and they were looking for Christians and Muslims. They put Muslims here and Christians over there. That was Da'esh in Libya," Tesfamical said.
He said the ISIS fighters beheaded 20 people at the side of the road; he ran away, feeling the sting of a bullet as it grazed his back.
"In Libya it was very very dangerous. If you have this," he said, clasping the crucifix around his neck, "it means this," gesturing to suggest a knife slicing his throat.
This Can't Stand!
here's a rumor going around that when Star Wars is released on digital format tomorrow it will restore a key scene. Badass Digest reports that Star Wars will have Han shooting first.So awesome that someone cares more about the story than toys and the kiddies!
In 1977's Star Wars, audiences were introduced to Han Solo in a badass way. He is confronted by Greedo, a bounty hunter, in Mos Eisley cantina. Greedo wants to collect the bounty on Han, which was set by Jabba the Hutt. As the scene plays out we see Han very slyly reach for his gun and in a casual manner fires it, killing Greedo.
Then Lucas decided to alter the scene for the 1997 Special Edition re-release. Instead of having Han fire first, he had Greedo take a shot a Han. This destroyed a key component of Han's character development. We ended up with a generic self-defense scene.
Just downloaded "Star Wars: A New Hope" HD on Australian iTunes. No change from the Blu-ray - Greedo still shoots first god damn it.— Garth Franklin (@darkhorizons) April 9, 2015
Han Shoots First alternate
Because Fox doesn't know WTF fair use is
Also FOX no longer has a claim they sold out to Disney
Hat Tip: B'emet Or.
Updated: 04/22/15... As a kid I not only saw star wars. I had the Album and also the book. I hate to say the book has long ago been lost but thanks to the wonder that is Google we can now see the Han vs. Greedo encounter in its entire context. (also good if you want to read about Luke goofing off at the power station with his no good friends but I digress).
So you see Greedo had a gun on Solo and threatened him three times, also Solo didn't reply "I'll bet you have." to Greedo's "I've waited for this for a long time".
He replied, "I think you're right." to Greedo's ,"...for the last time."
Regardless HAN SHOOTS FIRST!
I'm Afraid You'll Have to Sell Your Speeder
It's all right, I don't think I'll need it again.
He's too dangerous to be left alive.

Report Caliph Ibrahim Has a Very Bad Day
The leader of Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has been seriously wounded in an air strike in western Iraq, sources have told the Guardian.
A source in Iraq with connections to the terror group revealed that Baghdadi suffered serious injuries during an attack by the US-led coalition in March. The source said Baghdadi’s wounds were at first life-threatening, but he has since made a slow recovery. He has not, however, resumed day-to-day control of the organisation.
Baghdadi’s wounding led to urgent meetings of Isis leaders, who initially believed he would die and made plans to name a new leader.
Zombie Saddam Rules ISIS
Iraqi volunteer forces said Khaled Faisal, who “was a former General in the National Intelligence Service under the regime of Saddam Hussein,” was killed in an operation by the Iraqi volunteer forces south of the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk, English-language online newspaper Iraqi News reported.Meanwhile Spiegel reports that documents captured in Syria show ISIS was founded by former Saddam intelligence officer Samir Abd Muhammad al-Khlifawi in 2012.
Faisal acted as a self-proclaimed military commander of the Takfiri ISIL group in the area of al-Bashir in the city, the forces added.
Faisal’s son, identified as Hamaza, was also killed in the operation.
Iraqi forces earlier killed Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri, the former commander of the so-called Army of the Men of the Naqshbandi Order under Hussein, during a preemptive operation in the eastern part of Iraqi city of Tikrit.
shot and killed him after a brief firefight in the town of Tal Rifaat on a January morning in 2014 knew the true identity of the tall man in his late fifties. They were unaware that they had killed the strategic head of the group calling itself "Islamic State" (IS). The fact that this could have happened at all was the result of a rare but fatal miscalculation by the brilliant planner. The local rebels placed the body into a refrigerator, in which they intended to bury him. Only later, when they realized how important the man was, did they lift his body out again.The current; Caliph Abu Bakr al-Bahgdadi was chosen to all an Islamic flavor to the already openly Islamist Ansar al-Sunnah brand merging it with Taweed and Jihad and taking the brand name of AQI or Islamic State of Iraq to broaden its appeal.
Samir Abd Muhammad al-Khlifawi was the real name of the Iraqi, whose bony features were softened by a white beard. But no one knew him by that name. Even his best-known pseudonym, Haji Bakr, wasn't widely known. But that was precisely part of the plan. The former colonel in the intelligence service of Saddam Hussein's air defense force had been secretly pulling the strings at IS for years. Former members of the group had repeatedly mentioned him as one of its leading figures. Still, it was never clear what exactly his role was.
But when the architect of the Islamic State died, he left something behind that he had intended to keep strictly confidential: the blueprint for this state. It is a folder full of handwritten organizational charts, lists and schedules, which describe how a country can be gradually subjugated. SPIEGEL has gained exclusive access to the 31 pages, some consisting of several pages pasted together. They reveal a multilayered composition and directives for action, some already tested and others newly devised for the anarchical situation in Syria's rebel-held territories. In a sense, the documents are the source code of the most successful terrorist army in recent history.
Bad Gun Control Thwarts Jihadi
An Algerian Youth's bid to make it big in the word of Jihad went awry when after or while murdering his first victim Allah saw fit to cause him to shoot himself in the leg.
An Islamic extremist with an arsenal of loaded guns was only prevented from opening fire on churchgoers because he accidentally shot himself in the leg, French officials said Wednesday.Then to add insult to injury he called an ambulance. Rather than killing the first responders like a good Jihadi he asked that they save his life.
The 24-year-old computer science student, who was also suspected in the death of a young woman whose body was found on Sunday just ahead of his arrest, had been flagged as a risk last year and earlier this year for intent to travel to Syria but there had been no specific reason to open a judicial investigation, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said Wednesday.
he apparently shot himself by accident and called for an ambulance. He was waiting outside for first aid when police arrived at the scene. They discovered a blood trail leading to his car, which contained loaded guns and notes about potential targets.Strait to hail! Allah don't respect no fail.
"Documents were also found and they prove, without any ambiguity, that the individual was preparing an imminent attack, in all probability, against one or two churches," Cazeneuve said.
In the man's apartment, in southeastern Paris, more weapons were found as well as Islamic extremist material, the official said. There was no immediate evidence that the suspect had direct ties to any organized groups, the official said.
Aurelie Chatelain, a 32-year-old Frenchwoman visiting Paris for a training session for her work, was found shot to death on Sunday morning in her car. The security official said Chatelain appeared to have been killed at random and ballistics evidence linked her death to the suspect.
Our thoughts go out to the innocent woman murdered by this Asian Youth...... If they French brought out the guillotine for him it would be even better.
