updateFBI trying to confirm ID of Somalia suicide bomber
Abdirahman Warsame at Terror Free Somalia informed us late last night that messages appearing on known al-Shabaab websites indicate that a suicide bomber who carried out on attack on AMISOM forces in Mogadishu on Monday was a Somali-American from the Minneapolis area. A twenty-two minute audio was posted on the Somali Memo website (article and audio have since disappeared) that included a segment of an English-speaking Somali speaker — apparently the suicide bomber — who encourages Muslims in the West to “die for their religion.”Joined the African Taliban eh? Shocking....
Another article on Somali Memo identifies the speaker as Asadullahi Axmed “al-Imriiki” (“the American”), a 25-year old-from Minneapolis. The news is quickly being picked up by other Somali online forums.
The issue of radicalization and terror recruitment among Somali-American youths is an issue I’ve covered here at Pajamas Media since 2007 (long before it became fashionable for the establishment media). In November 2007, I wrote about a terror fundraiser and deputy of designated terrorist Sheikh Aweys, Zakaria Haji Abdi (who is now part of the Somali TFG government), who was scheduled to speak at several events in Minnesota and Virginia. Our pleas to Homeland Security officials to deny entry to the fundraiser fell on deaf ears and the event took place as planned.
I was able to locate the .mp3 but its in Somali.
