Adam Gadahn To Face Treason Charges

This is big. It's been over fifty years since the charge has been pressed and Tomoya Kawakita was the person that it was leveled at then. Mr. Kawakita was a Japanese-American citizen, with dual citizenship. His case went before the Supreme Court in 1952, in Kawakita v. United States. In that case, his death penalty was upheld, but before President Eisenhower left office, he commuted the sentence to life imprisonment. Under President Kennedey, when Alcatraz was closing (which is where Mr. Kawakita was being held), he pardoned the man.

Now, Adam Gadahn is being charged with treason for his willing assistance to al Qaeda. AllahPundit was all over this when it first was reported. For those that don't know who this man is (as Allah pointed out, it appears that CNN was unaware of who he was) Michelle Malkin caught his "invitation to Islam" video back in September during which he invited people to either conver or die. Pleasant fella, and the charges couldn't have come at a better time.

We've had a few Americans caught in al Qaeda's midst. The most famous of which is John Walker Lindh who should have been facing these charges. But, here's what the AP Report says courtesy of Charles at LGF:

The charge of treason was used for the first time in the United States' war on terrorism Wednesday, filed against a California man who appeared in propaganda videos for al-Qaida.

Adam Yehiye Gadahn, 28, could be sentenced to death if convicted of the charge, which has been used only a few dozen times in U.S. history and not at all since the World War II era. He also was indicted on a charge of providing material support to terrorists.

Gadahn "knowingly adhered to an enemy of the United States, namely, al-Qaida, and gave al-Qaida aid and comfort ... with intent to betray the United States," according to the indictment, handed up by an Orange County grand jury.

The suspected al-Qaida operative has been sought by the FBI
since 2004. Based on the indictment, the FBI added Gadahn to its list of most wanted terrorists and offered a $1 million reward for information leading to his arrest or conviction.

Gadahn, who is believed to be in or near Pakistan, is suspected of having attended the terrorist group's training camps in Pakistan and serving as one of its translators. He has become known by his nom de guerre, Azzam al-Amriki, or "Azzam the American."

Gadahn appeared last month in a 48-minute video along with al-Qaida's No. 2 leader, Ayman al-Zawahri, calling on his countrymen to convert to Islam and for U.S. soldiers to switch sides in the Iraq and Afghan wars.

It was the second time he appeared in the same video with al-Zawahri. In a July 7 video marking the one-year anniversary of the terror attack on London commuters, Gadahn appeared briefly, saying no Muslim should "shed tears" for Westerners killed by al-Qaida attacks.

Body and blood, mind and soul, Adam Gadahn is a die-hard convert to Islamofascism. Everything he has done has shown the world that he abhors Western civilization, and that he wants us dead. Sure, convert if you want (and you don't mind being looked down on by "true" Muslims), otherwise you'll get the sword. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is exactly why these charges were handed down. He is willing to assist our enemies--in any way possible--to help them achieve their goals. He is, by all accounts and definitions, an enemy of the state.

The antiwar lefties that believe we're the enemy will come out in defense of this man. But there is no defense for actions that are completely contrary to the security of the nation. You want to disagree, you're entitled to that. But he has called upon US soldiers to abadon their oaths and their nation's defense, and join the jihad. He has praised the bombers from 11 September, the 7 July bombers, and the 11 March bombers. I'm sure if he were offered a chance to martyr himself for the cause, he'd jump at the chance, and relish the feeling of killing innocent men, women, and children. Evil like this can only be haded one charge.

I agree with the charge of treason being levied on him. He's a POS that deserves the death sentence. Now, we just need to get him alive.
