California Man Revealed as al Qaeda Leader

For the first time, a former Orange County, Calif. teenage rock music fan has revealed his role as a top al Qaeda leader.

Adam Gadahn, who disappeared from California seven years ago, appeared unmasked on an al Qaeda tape made public on the internet today.

As previously reported by ABC News, the FBI had concluded that the masked man was Gadahn based on voice analysis of previous al Qaeda tapes. On today’s tape, Gadahn is bearded, wearing a turban.

He denounces U.S. soldiers in Iraq and their alleged murder and rapes of Iraqi citizens.

"Who are the real terrorists?" Gadahn asks.

There was no immediate response from Gadahn’s family, which still lives in California. They had previously denied he was the masked figure on al Qaeda tapes.

Of course the reporter here is Brian Ross, so who knows if this is true.

But assuming it is, when will Gadahn be matriculating to Yale?
