Tape Delivered to ABC Threatens Attack on L.A.

A video tape threatening a terror attack on Los Angeles has been delivered to ABC News in Pakistan. The big question, as Suburban Guerilla asks, is it real?

A tape delivered to ABC News in Pakistan this weekend features a masked man making terrorist threats against Los Angeles and Australia. ABC News reported that the man is believed to be Adam Yahiye Gadahn, an American from California purported to be an al-Qaida member and wanted by the FBI. The CIA said Sunday it was aware of the report but had no immediate comment about the tape's authenticity. Counterterror officials believe Gadahn also may be the person on a 75-minute video given to ABC News last year in Pakistan.

    I wonder who Adam Pearlman is really working for.

    Why it might be fake: Bush could use the distraction from his current screw-up and "Look over there! Terrorists!" is the song he knows best. Why it might not be: As far as would-be terrorists are concerned, Bush's reaction (or lack thereof) to Katrina may as well have consisted of ringing a dinner bell and yelling "Come and get it."

    for some reason, this chap shows up every time bush REALLY needs a boost: http://mypetjawa.mu.nu/archives/052254.php i'm just sayin'.
