Adam Gadahn Captured In Pakistan UPDATE: Maybe Not


For realies, this time  –  Hot Air reports that NBC, AP, and Bill Roggio’s sources say that it really is Gadahn:

AP: 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.

So how is the Obama administration going to handle this one? Has he been read his Miranda rights? Will he be tried in a civilian court, or by military tribunal?
