Breaking: Pakistani Officials Report American Born Al Qaeda Operative Adam Gadahn Arrested in Pakistan

USA Today is reporting the good news that Adam Gadahn, the American who sold his soul to Islamofascism, has been arrested in Pakistan:

Pakistani intelligence officers say they have arrested Adam Gadahn, the American-born spokesman for al-Qaeda.

Two officers say Gadahn was arrested in the city of Karachi in recent days.

They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information.

Gadahn has been wanted by the FBI since 2004 and two years later was charged with treason. There is a $1 million reward for information leading to his arrest or conviction.

He has posted videos and messages calling for the destruction of the West and for strikes against targets in the United States. The most recent was posted Sunday, praising the U.S. Army major charged with killing 13 people in Fort Hood, Texas.

The AP is also reporting of Gadahn’s arrest:

Pakistani intelligence agents have arrested Adam Gadahn, the American-born spokesman for al-Qaida, in an operation in the southern city of Karachi, two officers and a government official said Sunday.

The arrest of Gadahn is a major victory in the U.S.-led battle against al-Qaida and will be taken as a sign that Pakistan is cooperating more fully with Washington. It follows the recent detentions of several Afghan Taliban commanders in Karachi.

Gadahn was arrested in the sprawling southern metropolis in recent days, two officers who took part in the operation said. A senior government official also confirmed the arrest.

Update: CBS reported earlier this evening that the man captured was not Gadahn, but McClatchy reports that Pakistani officials are adamant that it is him (hat tip: Hot Air).

JammieWearingFool writes about Pakistan’s insistence that they have captured Gadahn:

If that’s indeed the case they could remove any doubt by producing some photo evidence.

Yep, agreed.
