“Azzam the American” is “Adam Yahiye Gadahn”

Via Fox News we hear of Imam Haitham Bundjaki telling us that Azzam the American sounds an awful lot like Adam Yahiye Gadahn, a young man he converted to Islam. (See also “Adam Pearlman” or “Abu Suhayb Al-Amriki”.)

The 9/11 Commission report had a lot to say about certain mosques in the US, and how Al-Queda members used them as recruiting grounds although they couldn't necessarily assert that it was an approved practice. Adam, at least, is supposed to have gone to Pakistan to meet with Abu Zubaydah in Pakistan or Afghanistan.
