Gadahn's Threat and Iran's Naval Provocation Are Not Coincidental

This man has now sealed his fate.

Al Qaeda Leader To Bush: 'We Will Be Waiting For You' - Adam Yahiye Gadahn, American-born cultural expert for the al-Qaeda organization told his followers to welcome Bush "with bombs and traps" upon his upcoming visit to the Middle East. source

On October 11, 2006, Gadahn had been indicted by a United States District Court in California for treason, and was added to the Bureau of Diplomatic Security Rewards for Justice list of wanted terrorists. Those actions merely magnified his esteem within the Al Qaeda.
His recent threat on the life of a sitting U.S. president, however, has more serious ramifications for this lazy, Islamist convert. His mouth made a contract his butt can't keep. Why? Because when the U.S. goes after Osama later in 2008, Gadahn will not be protected at the risk of Islamic families whose children now stand between him and capture.
When the first missile strikes close to his hideout, Gadahn will instantly become an unwelcomed liability. His head will likely be placed on a pike by his erstwhile hosts and word of his demise will spread. Try as he will, Gadahn is not really one of them; nor does he even work for his own meals. Get the picture? If he were your freeloading nephew, wouldn't you kick him out? Well, it's a little bit trickier for radical Islamists.
The naval incident: “The five Iranian fastboats essentially came in and charged the ships,” the Defense Department official said. The verbal warnings heard in English over the internationally recognized bridge-to-bridge radio channel said, “I am coming at you, and you will explode in a few minutes,” the official said. The confrontation came at a time of considerable tensions between the two countries, and a day before President Bush was to visit the region for a weeklong tour aimed both at encouraging Middle East talks and conveying a message that Iran continues to pose a serious threat.
“Whether they’re just testing us to learn about our procedures, or actually trying to initiate an incident, we don’t know,” the official said.
First, the two possibilities cannot be separated logically, its just that the DOD official is not at liberty to give any additional information the U.S. may have. The protest is being handled diplomatically, which means the press will get a cover story to quiet the public.
I will suggest an obvious cover story: Actions by naval units of Iran's Revolutionary Guard were due to an overzealous reaction of an I.R.G.C. maritime forces officer who interpreted the proximity of U.S. warships to Iranian waters as highly threatening.
The Fars news agency, which is close to the Revolutionary Guard, wrote in an analysis that the accusations were baseless and aimed at depicting Iran as a threat ahead of President Bush’s trip to the region. It said that the news received considerable attention in the Arab media. source
When it comes to threats against U.S. presidents, administrations are united in what must be done. Republican or Democrat, it makes no difference. Hunting season in Pakistan is about to begin. To the hunt!
One more thing. Leaders of the Iranian naval forces are not capable of testing the US. Navy to learn about our military procedures. Next time Iran tries that, the reaction could be quite different, but no more revealing to their military. Submarine, air, surface-to-surface strikes or combinations of equally fast reactions could ruin Iran's day, now, since turn about is fair play.
