American al Qaeda spokesman-complete transcript of latest message

15 June 2009: Adam PEARLMAN, a/k/a Adam Yahiye Gadahn,  the American Muslim under federal indictment for treason and a member of the FBI’s Most Wanted, appears in an as-Sahab production released on 13 June 2009. GADAHN, most recently referenced in al Qaeda postings and publications simply as “Azzam” shortened from “Azzam the American,” narrates his latest message titled “Let’s continue our jihad and sacrifice.”  The video and PDF translation was originally obtained by deep-cover operative “Archangel” within minutes of its posting to the Internet, and immediately submitted to U.S. intelligence agencies. Based on dates contained within the production credits of the video, it appears to have been produced several weeks ago. GADAHN references his Jewish ancestry and addresses, ostensibly, Barack Hussein Obama’s “apologetic” speech to Muslims worldwide that Obama delivered in Turkey. Upon analysis of the video and transcript by investigators of the Northeast Intelligence Network, one notable and interesting part is a specific reference to a speech given by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu almost 13 years ago to the day - June 18, 1996 - to the Knesset. Whether the incorporation of the remarks by Netanyahu made on that date relative to the release of the video is merely coincidental, or if there is some other significance to that date remains under analysis.
