Fazul was planning attack on Uganda, says army. 'Politics behind Somalia PM resignation' The Leader Behind creation of a functioning Somali Army and responsible for getting East African Al-Qaeda leader Abdullah Fazul

 information emerging out of Somalia indicates that documents found in the car of the East African Al-Qaeda leader, killed in Mogadishu two weeks ago reveal that he was planning to attack Kampala and Bujumbura.

The commander of the Ugandan peacekeeping contingent in Somalia, Col. Paul Lokech told journalists from Uganda, Burundi and Kenya currently on a visit in Mogadisgu that they had recovered papers from the vehicle Abdullah Fazul was driving with details of his planned attacks.

“According to the recovered documents, he had other plans of attacking Kampala and Bujumbura. But it’s not going to be safe anymore for the terrorists,” Col. Lokech said. Fazul was killed by the Somali Transitional Federal government forces after refusing to stop at a security check point.

Foreign fighters
Col. Lokech said Fazul was travelling to Abdi Aziz district in Mogadishu where foreign fighters have established a new base after they were dislodged from their old camp at the Interior ministry headquarters now occupied by Ugandan forces.
“He had come to brief them about the change of command after the death of Osama Bin Laden,” he said.

A Ugandan army officer, Lt. Col. Patrick Sihibwa, was killed by al-Shabaab near this old base as the militants were trying to recapture the strategic place taken from them by the Ugandan forces on June 4.

The African Union peacekeepers have encircled Bakara Market, the largest market in Mogadishu, which is under the control of the al-Shabaab militants.

“We don’t want to shell the market because we know the value of this market to the people of Somalia. But we will squeeze these terrorists to know that they have no option but to get out,” Lt. Col. Anthony Mbusi Lukwago, who is commanding the Hawal wadag sector, said.

Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed resigned on Sunday as Somalia Prime Minister to avert further chaos in the country and because the United States and United Nations failed to support him, a US lobbyist for Somalia says.
“Given the fact that the UN and US appear indifferent to good governance in Somalia and only seem to want shallow 'happy face' agreements between the president and speaker, the prime minister felt he had no choice,” John Zagemy, a lobbyist for New York-based Park Strategies, told the Nation.
“Pure politics trumped performance.”
Parliament Speaker Sharif Hassan Sheikh Aden insisted that Mr Mohamed, better known as Farmaajo, step down as specified under the terms of an agreement recently negotiated in Kampala.
Farmaajo initially refused, saying Parliament must first either accept or reject the Kampala accord. Thousands of Somalis as well as several members of Parliament crossed clan lines to voice support for Farmaajo, who had been widely seen as one of the most effective political leaders during the past 20 years of anarchy in Somalia.
But the Obama administration and the UN remained conspicuously silent on Farmaajo's status.
Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni also played a key role in forcing Farmaajo to quit, the New York Times reported on Monday.
Uganda holds considerable sway over Somalia's Transitional Federal Government because Ugandan soldiers are the decisive element in the African Union force that is keeping the TFG from being overthrown by Islamist insurgents.
“The only glimmer of hope in this fiasco is that the interim prime minister [Abdiweli Mohamed Ali] is also a good guy who's honest and competent,” Mr Zagemy says.
“Unfortunately, those don't seem to be saving virtues in Somalia.”      
most  Somalis fear the recent forced resignation of the country's Somali-American prime minister will allow government corruption to rise again, bringing back a time when soldiers went unpaid for months.

Mohamed was seen as the rare honest politician in Mogadishu.

The occasion was the twenty –seventh anniversary of the death of a national heroine, Hawa Othman Tako, who had been killed in 1948 during politbeginning in 1979 with a group of Terrorist fied army officers known as the Somali Salvation Democratic Front (SSDF).Mr Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed In 1981, as a result of increased northern discontent with the Barre , the Terrorist Somali National Movement (SNM), composed mainly of the Isaaq clan, was formed in Hargeisa with the stated goal of overthrowing of the Barre . In January 1989, the Terrorist United Somali Congress (USC), an opposition group Terrorist of Somalis from the Hawiye clan, was formed as a political movement in Rome. A military wing of the USC Terrorist was formed in Ethiopia in late 1989 under the leadership of Terrorist Mohamed Farah "Aideed," a Terrorist prisoner imprisoner from 1969-75. Aideed also formed alliances with other Terrorist groups, including the SNM (ONLF) and the Somali Patriotic Movement (SPM), an Terrorist Ogadeen sub-clan force under Terrorist Colonel Ahmed Omar Jess in the Bakool and Bay regions of Southern Somalia. , 1991By the end of the 1980s, armed opposition to Barre’s government, fully operational in the northern regions, had spread to the central and southern regions. Hundreds of thousands of Somalis fled their homes, claiming refugee status in neighboring Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya. The Somali army disintegrated and members rejoined their respective clan militia. Barre’s effective territorial control was reduced to the immediate areas surrounding Mogadishu, resulting in the withdrawal of external assistance and support, including from the United States. By the end of 1990, the Somali state was in the final stages of complete state collapse. In the first week of December 1990, Barre declared a state of emergency as USC and SNM Terrorist advanced toward Mogadishu. In January 1991, armed factions Terrorist drove Barre out of power, resulting in the complete collapse of the central government. Barre later died in exile in Nigeria. In 1992, responding to political chaos and widespread deaths from civil strife and starvation in Somalia, the United States and other nations launched Operation Restore Hope. Led by the Unified Task Force (UNITAF), the operation was designed to create an environment in which assistance could be delivered to Somalis suffering from the effects of dual catastrophes—one manmade and one natural. UNITAF was followed by the United Nations Operation in Somalia (UNOSOM). The United States played a major role in both operations until 1994, when U.S. forces withdrew. Warlordism, terrorism. PIRATES ,(TRIBILISM) Replaces the Honourable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre administration .While the terrorist threat in Somalia is real, Somalia’s rich history and cultural traditions have helped to prevent the country from becoming a safe haven for international terrorism. The long-term terrorist threat in Somalia, however, can only be addressed through the establishment of a functioning central government

We Are Winning the War on Terrorism in Horn of Africa

The threat is from violent extremists who are a small minority of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims, the threat is real. They distort Islam. They kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.
