Traitorous Adam Gadahn Met Justice In Hellfire?

Well, according to Pakistani reports, US officials believe that they got Adam Gadahn (aka Azzam the American) along with Abu Laith al-Libi, who al Qaeda concedes was killed in the airstrike in Pakistan. Gadahn is charged with treason for aiding al Qaeda and is the first American to be charged as such since 1952.
According to sources, American officials who are yet to publicly confirm the killing of Abu Laith al-Libi, had reportedly sharing information with western media that most likely another most wanted figure, Adam Gadahn, has also been killed in the air strike by the CIA-operated unmanned drone on a house in Khushali Torikhel village near Mirali town.

According to sources, the American al-Qaeda militant, who has been reportedly spending much of his time in Afghanistan and Pakistani tribal areas along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, had reached Mirali for an important meeting with other senior al-Qaeda commanders for planning the so-called spring offensive against US and Nato troops in Afghanistan.

However, there were no details whether he arrived in the town when a house reportedly housing some senior al-Qaeda operatives including Abu Laith al-Libi, was blitzed. US military officials based in Afghanistan are reportedly collecting details about those killed in the attack on the house and in this regard two of their spy planes continued flying over the same area even after the tragic incident.
Al Qaeda hasn't confirmed that Gadahn was killed, and the evidence is pretty circumstantial at this point.

He was last seen ripping up his US passport in an al Qaeda video.

Allah considers the chances of Gadahn being at the meeting with al Libi to be pretty thin. I'm not entirely convinced that he wouldn't be at such a meeting. After all, terrorists and megalomaniacs need their press flacks to shoot video or take directions, and Gadahn is one of the go-to guy for al Qaeda leaders getting their messages out.
