Al Shabaab threatened to disrupt Obama inauguration today

Update Feb. 28th:   AP has more details on what went down on inauguration weekend.

Update Jan. 21st:   PI Bill Warner has more on this story and directs us to al Shabaab’s recruitment website in Vancouver, WA.

Update:   Washington Post has this story too with a bit more detail, but the Post reporter does not have the most up-to-date information on al Shabaab’s activities in the US as the LA Times reported a couple of days ago.  Reuter’s version is here.


The following is the subheading of the article from Fox News today (Hat tip: Blulitespecial):

Law enforcement and intelligence officials received information that a Somalia-based Islamic terror group, al-Shabaab, might try to travel to the U.S. with plans to disrupt the inauguration.

Hint to Homeland Security:  They do not have to travel to the US, they are already here!    Maybe you law enforcement guys aren’t following RRW daily, but gee, don’t you even read the Los Angeles Times!   Read our post  of two days ago and you will know that al-Shabaab is recruiting at mosques in the US.

And one wonders if the Fox reporter did any googling before writing!

More from the Fox story:

WASHINGTON — Authorities monitored a rush of intelligence leads Tuesday at the largest security operation in presidential inauguration history, including a possible threat from an East Africa radical Islamic terrorist group.

Law enforcement and intelligence officials received information that people associated with a Somalia-based group, al-Shabaab, might try to travel to the U.S. with plans to disrupt the inauguration, according to a joint FBI/Homeland Security bulletin issued Monday night. The information had limited specificity and uncertain credibility, said Homeland Security spokesman Russ Knocke.

Then this is really ticking me off!  (BOLDING, Italics, capitalizing and underlining means really ticked off.) 

Officials told FOX News that they are actively exploring whether a link exists with two Americans of Somali descent recently identified as suicide bombers in Somalia.

EXPLORING!  EXPLORING!   The FBI has already identified and buried America’s first suicide bomber—Shirwa Ahmed—al Shabaab American citizen.  What aren’t you law enforcement people talking to each other again?  I thought putting you all under the same head man (now head woman) was supposed to solve that problem.    Or are you possibly soft peddling this story so as not to scare the party goers?

And, by the way, al Shabaab is the same as Al Qaeda—they both want a worldwide Islamic caliphate governed by Sharia Law.   They just keep making up new names to throw us off track, and we keep falling for it!

BUT WAIT!  Why would they attack us now?   Isn’t Obama here to save the day?  Won’t the lion soon lay down with the lamb?

Note to new readers:  The US State Department with the help of 10 non-government contractors including Catholic Charities, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society and Church World Service have resettled over 80,000 Somalis in the US in the last 25 years.
