Blowing Up In Somalia

Remember those missing Minnesotan Somali “youths” I wrote about yesterday? It seems that the FBI has determined the whereabouts of one of these fun-loving young whippersnappers: he’s back in Somalia, and may no longer be in one piece.

According to Refugee Resettlement Watch:

Somali terrorist group wants to throw the West “into hell”

And, guess where they are recruiting? According to a pair of stunning articles today, it looks like right in the good old USA. Yes, that is right! Remember those Minneapolis missing young men? When we suggested in that post yesterday that we are breeding and raising Jihadists, whose families have possibly arrived in the US fraudulently through the Refugee Resettlement Program, we might really be on to something.

No wonder the Department of Homeland Security put the squeeze on the State Department to shut the family reunification (P-3) program down. Family reunification, we have learned previously, is the largest portion of our legal immigrant program. I don’t think Somalis come into the US in any other way than through Refugee Resettlement (or I suppose illegally).

From Minneapolis 5 Eyewitness News :

5 EYEWITNESS NEWS has learned that federal law enforcement sources believe that a Twin Cities man blew himself up in a suicide bombing in Northern Somalia last month.

The FBI and Homeland Security are investigating whether Shirwa Ahmed had developed a terrorist recruiting network in the area.

5 EYEWITNESS NEWS learned that Ahmed came to the Twin Cities in 1996 and graduated from Roosevelt High School in Minneapolis. He was a naturalized U.S. citizen.

More than a dozen young men of Somali descent, mostly in their 20s, from the Minneapolis area have recently disappeared, U.S. law enforcement officials tell 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS. All are thought to be associates of Ahmed. U.S. officials suspect most of the young men have departed for Somalia to fight in ongoing violence there or to train in terrorist camps. Family members of the young men are said to be distraught, trying to figure to out what happened to them, sources say.

So far, the investigation has not uncovered credible evidence of a plot targeting the U.S. but American officials want to track down all these young men before they can say for certain what this is or is not…

OK, now is the time to put all that expensive state-of-the-art high-tech TSA equipment to good use. Retinal scans, facial recognition software, fingerprints, X-rays, whatever it takes — if Granny has to take off her shoes at the airport, then surely we can keep these punks from re-entering the United States.

If we can’t, then what good is the Department of Homeland Security, anyway?

The real question is: when will the Footballs guy pick up the story?

Somalia threw itself into hell long ago, by promising to throw us into hell, they think we are Somalia too, ergo there is no reason to throw us "into hell". Or should we be "the same" for different reasons?

Or do they think to be in heaven?
Then we are in hell already, everything is OK.

Baron, you answered it yourself. To make sure that: "... Granny has to take off her shoes at the airport..."

If only Homeland Security would do racial profiling, it would be a *lot* of good!

It's so simple. Yet, the courage to do it is lacking.

BTW, with regards to the 'Footballs guy', I doubt he will post this. It's too important. He's busy posting images of watertaps, cloudy skies and other things that make sense in his universe. The result is predictable - a tailspin in traffic: While Alexa isn't exactly known for precision, it actually reports that GoV had more traffic than the lizards' nest on the 24th :)
