Images of a nation in mourning :Norway gunman warns of terror network, but police cast doubts on claim . Norway terror suspect claims to have worked with 2 other cells

The man responsible for the deaths of 76 children and adults in Friday’s Norwegian terrorist attacks has admitted to his acts, but argues that he is not guilty because they were acts of self-defense on behalf of an entire continent -- and that he has cells of comrades waiting to commit similar crimes The overall toll was previously given by police as 93 but was recently revised. Anders Behring Breivik, a 32-year-old Norwegian, spoke in a closed pretrial sentencing hearing to Judge KIim Heger. He had asked to have a public hearing so he could make an ideological statement reflecting the contents of the 1500-page manifesto he released Friday, and to wear the uniform of his self-described anti-multiculturalist army, but he was refused “The objective for the attacks was to hand people a powerful message,” Judge Heger told reporters afterwards, summarizing his statements. Mr. Breivik said he wanted to “save Europe” from multiculturalism and immigration of Muslims, and to punish Norway’s governing Labour Party by bombing the Prime Minister’s office and going on a shooting rampage at an island camp for children of party members.
“The accused wanted to cause the Labour Party as much damage as possible, so that recruitment would be limited in the future,” the judge said. “The operation was not about killing as many as possible, but to provide a significant signal that simply could not be misunderstood,” Mr. Breivik said, according to the judge. “As long as the Labour party maintains their ideological line of politics, whereby they deconstruct Norwegian culture and ‘mass-import’ Muslims, they must be held accountable for treason. One cannot allow one's country to be colonised by Muslims.”
Most ominously, he claimed that he has “two cells” of accomplices in his "Knights Templar" group elsewhere in Europe waiting to commit terrorism. Norwegian police, however, think gunman Anders Behring Breivik is probably a lone wolf, a view also held by some researchers who cast doubt on his claim that he was working with two other cells. Earlier, Mr. Breivik maintained he acted alone. Police attorney Christian Hatlo told reporters on Monday he “cannot completely, and I stress completely, rule out that others were involved in what happened.” But police say privately that they think more cells are unlikely although security services are checking with their international partners about potential foreign links. “We feel that the accused has fairly low credibility when it comes to this claim but none of us dare to be completely dismissive about it either,” a source close to the investigation told Reuters. Police are checking Mr. Breivik’s phone and credit card records as well as his known movements to determine whether he was working alone. Magnus Ranstorp, Research Director at the Centre for Asymmetric Threat Studies at the Swedish National Defence College, said that, as far as he knows, nobody had evidence of the existence of the Knights Templar organization. “There’s no one who seems to know if the group exist or if it’s something he made up,” he told Reuters. “They (mass killers) are usually alone. He’s extremely narcissistic and he goes on about himself and his role in history.” Ragnhild Bjoernebekk, a researcher at Norway’s police school who specialises in crime and violence, said it was not inconceivable that Mr. Breivik was part of a network, but added: “The fact he wants to talk about it is surprising. Perhaps he wants to suggest that he is part of something bigger than himself." Further undermining his claim, Mr. Breivik’s manifesto published before his shooting rampage suggested authorities should be disinformed about collaborator “Give the impression that your cell is larger by attempting to forward misinformation on the police band or by other means,” he said in the 1,500 page document. In the rambling manifesto, which mixes imagery of medieval crusades and Internet war games, Mr. Breivik calls himself a “Justiciar Knight Commander of Cell 8” and said he would try to “initiate contact with cell 8b and 8c ,The document says that each cell commander has up to two operatives. “Intuitively, it feels like he is alone when you read the document. It’s like he’s lost in this made up world and can’t distinguish between fantasy and reality,” said Mr. Ranstorp. Mr. Breivik will be held without bail for eight weeks, four of them in complete isolation, until his trial begins.
Norwegian police said Mr. Breivik had said during interrogation that he was prepared to spend the rest of his life in prison. Mr. Breivik had remained calm during questioning and appeared “unaffected” by his brutal shooting and bomb attacks, police said. The degree of Norwegian revulsion at the acts was apparent when Mr. Breivik’s defense lawyer gave an interview Monday morning in which he argued that his client’s remarks should not be made public and that he should not be permitted to wear his uniform. Police fanned out across the continent to investigate those who may be linked to the terrorist. One person was arrested in Wroclaw, Poland, apparently for selling chemicals to him that were used in the construction of the car bomb. His father, who lives in France and says he has not spoken to his son since 1995, was placed under police guard.

Honorable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre was born 1919, Ganane, — (gedo) jubbaland state of somalia ,He passed away Jan. 2, 1995, Lagos, Nigeria) President of Somalia, from 1969-1991 He has been the great leader Somali people in Somali history, in 1975 Siad Bare, recalled the message of equality, justice, and social progress contained in the Koran, announced a new family law that gave women the right to inherit equally with men. 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.
