Next up: Adam Gadahn!
He'll be harder to get rid of, particularly if he's still hiding in CONUS [Continental United States] somewhere.
Gadahn? No, Gadahn nee Pearlman is in AFPAK somewhere with his boys and goats. Still, I'd love to see him captured and see if DOJ applied the death penalty to him for treason (he's the first in 50 years or so indicted for treason).

Oh, I know -- that's why I'd like to see how it played out. But I agree he is far more likely to be turned into mincemeat by a drone strike.
Mincemeat, or maybe fish food, like this:
