Adam Gadahn, the former Garden Grove jail inmate in Orange County, Calif., who's become known as al Qaeda's media director, resurfaced in a new video released on the Web (first week of October 2008) after nearly nine months of silence. 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, 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.
Adam Gadahn worked for his aunt's radio and television production company in Los Angeles during the mid-1990s, and she thought he would become a broadcast journalist. In one of his last conversations with his family, Adam Gadahn said he was working for a newspaper in Pakistan (possibly As-Sahab) a family member told the Register in a 2004 interview. Adam Gadahn and some of his mentors in Orange County CA became the nucleus of what is now the As-Sahab media production wing of al-Qaeda.
