The Muslim Public Affairs Council says the statement by American-born Adam Gadahn is a failed attempt to deliver Al-Qaida's
bankrupt ideology to Western Muslims. Pakistani officials said Sunday that Gadahn had been arrested recently.
Gadahn described the man accused of the Fort Hood attacks, Maj. Nidal Hasan, as a role model for other Muslims, especially those
serving Western militaries.
Hasan had previously studied at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda and attended prayer services at the Muslim Community Center in Silver Spring.
