The As-Sahab Foundation for Islamic Media Publication, is the media production house of Al-Qaeda, used to relay the organization’s views to the world.Click here for here for video.
As-Sahab “produces documentary-quality films, iPod files and cellphone video.” In 2007, it released 97 original videos, a sixfold increase from 2005.
As-Sahab’s first production was believed to have been in 2001 with the involvement of Adam Yahiye Gadahn. U.S. and British intelligence officials believe it to be run by former Orange County California resident Adam Gadahn, who left America to join Al-Qaeda in Pakistan, as first reported by ABC News.
Although it has been reported that the media production of these messages has had a notable decrease in quality, possibly due to Gadahn’s involvement in other tasks for Al Qaeda.The “high quality” of the English subtitles and the “references to Malcolm X” in al-Qaeda’s 2008 post-presidential election video where Barack Obama is attacked as a “House Negro,” has been said to “reflect the influence” of Gadahn.
