Al Shabaab trained terror suspect free of all controls on UK streets

Second man suspected of being "committed and well connected" fanatic also released from terrorism prevention and investigation measures
A suspected Islamist fanatic trained by the Somali terror group Al-Shabaab and an alleged recruiter of jihadists has been freed of all controls on his activities.
The man, known only as CF, is also an associate of Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed who fled his terror controls last year and disappeared.
A second suspect who MI5 warned is a “long-term, committed and historically well-connected extremist” has also been released from all restrictions on his movements.
The men are among seven alleged fanatics who have been subject to terrorism prevention and investigation measures (Tpims), which replaced controls orders and were designed to restrict their activities.
A two – year time limit on the orders of each of them will have expired by Sunday and the Government is powerless to stop the restrictions being lifted.
 
It means they will be free to go wherever and meet whoever they wish but anonymity orders prevent the public from knowing who any of the men are.
CF is a British citizen of Somali descent who, in 2009, absconded from court bail and travelled to Somalia for alleged terror training, court papers show.  He is said to have been trained by Al-Shabaab and fought alongside them over the next two years as well as providing advice on travelling to Somalia to others and attempting to recruit fighters in the UK.  Al-Shabaab is the al Qaeda-linked terror group that was behind the Westgate shopping centre atrocity in Kenya last year that left up to 70 innocent people, including six Britons, dead. 
 
The missing British terror suspect Samantha Lewthwaite, dubbed the “white widow”, has also been linked to the group.  CF was captured in 2011, returned to the UK and placed under a control order, which was replaced with a Tpim the following year.  Atone stage, he was deemed such a risk that he was even banned from having an iPod amid fears he could store messages from extremists on it. 
During a review of his controls in the High Court last year, the Security Service said there remained a high risk of him absconding and that the extremist network he was allegedly part of could help him disappear.  The controls were kept in place even though the court was also told that CF has started a university course and it was hoped restrictions would not frustrate his studies.  Another Tpim suspect, known as BF, is also now free of his controls despite concerns he continues to pose a threat to UK national security. 
 
The High Court was told last summer that BF was a “long-term, committed and historically well-connected extremist and his close associates continue to be involved in ongoing extremist activities”.
There are also concerns that he will be encouraged to continue his alleged terror-related activities by his second wife, known only as V, who is said to hold extremist views herself.  BF is alleged to have travelled to Pakistan in 2008 for terrorism purposes and had planned to go there again the following year when he left a “farewell letter” for his family saying: “I will always remember you and my babies”. 
 
The concern is once he is free of restrictions he may now try to travel to Syria where he could connect with al-Qaeda, the court papers show.  “It that event, such a person would constitute a significant threat to the United Kingdom national security and be able to engage in terrorist training and fighting,” the court was told.  A Home Office spokesman said: “TPIMs were introduced because Control Orders were not working and their powers were being struck down by the courts.  “They now provide some of the strongest possible protections that the courts will allow and the police and Security Service believe they have been effective in reducing the national security risk posed by a number of individuals.  “But TPIMs are just one weapon in the considerable armoury at the disposal of the police and Security Service to disrupt terrorist activity.”

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.
