Al-Qaida's US-born member calls fighters to greet Bush with bombs

Al-Qaida's American spokesman Adam Gadahn called on the terror network's fighters to greet U.S. President George W. Bush with "bombs and booby-trapped vehicles" when he visits the Middle East later this week, according to a new video posted Sunday. The anti-American rhetoric-packed video that also featured Gadahn tearing up his US passport as part of a "symbolic" protest against Washington marked the terror network's first message of 2008. "Now we direct an urgent call to our militant brothers in Muslim Palestine and the Arab peninsula ... to be ready to receive the Crusader slayer Bush in his visit to Muslim Palestine and the Arab peninsula in the beginning of January and to receive him not with flowers or clapping but with bombs and booby-trapped vehicles," Gadahn said in Arabic.
