Adam Gadahn: Riding on the Coat Tails of Killers

Is it just me or does Adam Gadahn's video look make him look like a cheap wannabe riding on the coat tails of killers? He reminds me of those kookie guys that always try to confess to some heinous crime so they can be "famous". The video looked like it was shot in front of a blue screen or merged to show some fake background and the guy himself looked like a kid playing make believe.

What's with him hiding his face? As if nobody has a picture of him without a turban or scarf across his face.

Also, his hand movements were extremely wimpy. Was that finger pointing supposed to make us afraid?

My honest opinion? Mr. Gadahn is a nobody who is acting out a fantasy, pretending to be somebody he isn't and making videos proclaiming attacks on specific cities because he wants to be something he isn't. A very dangerous game, to be sure, but a game none the less.

I particularly found this statement ironically amusing:

"Yesterday, London and Madrid. Tomorrow, Los Angeles and Melbourne, Allah willing. And this time, don't count on us demonstrating restraint and compassion," the man says during the 11-minute tape.

Restraint? Compassion? Laughable. Not only because the attacks against civilians have neither been restrained or compassionate, but because he is trying to intimate that their relative smallness compared to giant car bombs in Iraq and the attacks of 9/11 are because they are showing restraint as opposed to unable to do anything else in these restricted arenas with stronger security and control by the authorities.

My first reaction to his statement was: don't make me laugh you little pissant peacock.

Anybody else think that Adam and Johnny Walker's parents should have beat them more?

In Sparta, the obviously defective infants were taken outside the city and left on a barren hillside for the wolves. Seemed barbaric when I read it, but maybe they were on to something.

Now, I don't use this word too often because of its emotional negativity, but I think it's in order:

What a whiney little cunt
