Friday, September 30, 2011 Samir Khan's Only On-Air Video Interview With WBTV With Help From Private Investigator Bill Warner SANAA, Yemen (WBTV) - A Charlotte man who ran the al-Qaida newsletter from Yemen was killed in a drone attack that also took out a prominent cleric Friday. Samir Khan, from Charlotte, just published a new issue of al-Qaeda's online magazine earlier this week. WBTV was the first to report about Khan in 2008 and at the time Khan began criticizing WBTV.
In addition to Khan, the U.S. airstrike Friday also killed American-Yemeni cleric Anwar al-Awlaki. Khan, who was 22-years-old in 2008, was of Pakistani heritage from Charlotte who produced "Inspire," an English-language Web magazine which spread al-Qaida ideology and promoted attacks against U.S. targets, even running articles on how to put together explosives. Khan was living in Yemen and his main article in the latest issue dealt with American media. In an earlier issue, Khan wrote that he had moved to Yemen and joined al-Qaida's fighters, pledging to "wage jihad for the rest of our lives."
Adam Yahiye Gadahn was indicted in the Central District of California for treason and material support to Al Qaeda. The charges are related to Gadahn's alleged involvement in a number of terrorist activities, including providing aid and comfort to Al Qaeda and services for Al Qaeda. The Rewards For Justice Program, United States Department of State, is offering a reward of up to $1 million for information leading to the arrest of Adam Yahiye Gadahn.
ADAM GADAHN FROM GARDEN GROVE CA JAIL IN 1997 TO SPOKESMAN FOR AL-QAEDA. Adam Gadahn has come a long way from his Garden Grove CA days (see jail photo above) where he got his SSN 623-78-xxxx in 1995 and started surfing the Internet. In 1995, at age 16, Adam Gadahn moved in with his grandparents in Santa Ana, California, where he worked in a computer store and explored the Internet.
Adam Gadahn was setting up web sites on the Internet for his heavy metal music reviews and then he discovered Islam ; "The turning point, perhaps, was when I moved in with my grandparents here in Santa Ana, the county seat of Orange, California. My grandmother, a computer whiz, is hooked up to America Online and I have been scooting the information superhighway since January. But when I moved in, with the intent of finding a job (easier said than done), I begin to visit the religion folders on AOL and the Usenet newsgroups, where I found discussions on Islam to be the most intriguing".
MOBILE PRESS-REGISTER NEWS Thursday, September 10, 2009. Private investigator Bill Warner says Daphne terror suspect Omar Hammami linked to jihadist Web site.
A Web site used by a Somali jihadist group that has been tied to a suspected terrorist from Daphne was hosted by an Internet company based in the United States, according to a private investigator. Bill Warner an investigator from Sarasota Fla who tried to shut down a number of Web sites linked to extremist groups, said he first targeted an al-Shabaab Web site in May 2008 after the U.S. government labeled it a terrorist organization.
Dotster Inc. of Vancouver, Wash., took the Web site down in January, Bill Warner said, after an order from the federal government. Bill Warner said he has run a detective agency for 15 years and has been trying to shut down terrorist Web sites — on his own time without pay — since 2003.
When watching an April 2007 al-Shabaab Web posting, he said, he was particularly intrigued by one of the men on the Web site, a fair-skinned man, who stood apart from the Somali fighters.
That man went by the name Abu Mansour al-Amriki. Fox News reported that his true identity is Omar Hammami and that he faces a secret indictment in Mobile's federal court on a charge of providing material support to terrorists. Omar Hammami, 27, attended Daphne High School and the University of South Alabama.
'Bill Warner said news reports of Hammami's past as a computer science student confirmed his suspicions that al-Amriki had provided technical assistance to al-Shabaab. "At that time, I suspected he was involved with setting up the Web site," he said. "It appears Omar, with his background, is the perfect guy to set this up for them."
According to the US Treasury Department, "Omar Hammami serves as a military tactician, recruitment strategist and financial manager for al-Shabaab. Hammami has commanded guerilla forces in combat, organized attacks and plotted strategy with al-Qa’ida. He was also involved in organizing a suicide bombing attack carried out by a Somali-American from Minnesota who traveled to Somalia to join al-Shabaab. That attack, and four others organized by Hammami and carried out in October 2008, killed more than 20 people.”
