American al Qaeda Member Indicted for Treason

Hosted by

America's first charge of treason since World War II makes an unlikely connection between al Qaeda and a Republican stronghold in California. Adam Gadahn of Orange County is thought to be overseas.  He now calls himself Azzam al-Amriki -- "Azzam the American" -- and he's appeared on five the terrorist group's tapes, four of them with Ayman Al-Zawahiri, who's number two to Osama bin Laden. Yesterday, a federal grand jury in Orange County charged him with treason.
