American in Syria Loved Kitties, Blowing Self, Others Up

I hope no kitties were killed when Abu Hurayra Al-Amriki blew himself up. Any one know this American suicide bomber in Syria's real name?

Over at Long War Journal Tom Joscelyn reports:

An American was one of four suicide bombers who took part in a recent coordinated assault in Syria, according to an Al Nusrah Front sharia official who is active on Twitter.

On May 25, the Al Nusrah Front, al Qaeda's official branch in Syria, announced that the joint attacks had been launched in conjunction with another rebel group, Suqour al Sham. A rumor circulated on Twitter that one of the four suicide bombers was an American, but there was no official confirmation from either of the groups responsible for the attacks.

That is no confirmation until today when Australian Abu Sulayman al Muhajir tweeted what you see above.

On the bright side: that's one less jihadi we'll have to worry about coming home to do damage here.
