He appears to be a man of mystery:
.Little is known about the shadowy al-Adel, who is also known by the names Muhammad al-Makkawi and Ibrahim al-Madani. Born in Egypt, al-Adel is said to have served as a colonel in its Special Forces.
I don't suppose we will get any more information about him, unless one of the fatheads on Sixty Minutes scores an on-air interview with him. I don't look forward to this event. I can certainly picture Mike Wallace trying to explore his human side, asking him about his hobby--collecting fountain pens, perhaps, or bowling--his preference in beverages (decaf mint tea?) and how he is so busy running JihadsRUs that he doesn't get to spend as much time as he would like with the wife and kids.
