Somali Intelligence Chief Talks to Asharq Al-Awsat,,confirms our story...Details on habar-gidir hawiye Terrorist kidnapped Two French men

Cairo, Asharq Al-Awsat- Director of the Somali Intelligence services, General Muhammad Sheikh Hassan, has said that contacts between the Somali government and the kidnappers of the French security experts detained by the Somali Shabab Movement are about to come to a halt.
In a telephone interview with Asharq Al-Awsat; his first since he took office last April [ 2009], the intelligence chief stressed his objection to any French military operation to free the hostages, even though the Somali Prime Minister, Omar Abdul-Rashid Sharmakie said he would not object to a French commando operation to free the two French hostages. The intelligence chief revealed that a military operation to free the hostages has been cancelled because "it was too difficult for us to carryout."
He denied that the Somali intelligence apparatus has been infiltrated by the Shabab Movement, but he revealed that 12 have been arrested in connection with this incident; some of them are members of the Islamic Military Court militias, who are allied with the interim Somali government led by President Sheikh Sharif.
The intelligence chief, General Muhammad Sheikh Hassan is 55; he joined the intelligence Academy of Mogadishu in 1975 and was promoted to the rank of Second Lieutenant. In 1986, he moved to the diplomatic service and worked in the office of the foreign minister with the rank of Colonel, until the collapse of the regime of President Muhammad Siad Berri in 1991.
During the civil war in Somalia he lived in Ethiopia and Kenya, and in September 2005, after the formation of the provisional parliament in the Kenyan capital Nairobi, he became director of the office of the Speaker of the Somali Parliament, Sharif Hassan Sheikh Adam. After the election of Sheikh Sharif as president earlier this year, he became director of the presidential office, and on the 19th April 2009, the Somali Council of Ministers approved his appointment as director of the Somali intelligence apparatus.
The following is the text of the interview:
[Asharq Al-Awsat] What is the latest information regarding the French hostages?
[Hassan] There is no news until now. There have been attempts to contact them, but these are on the brink of being brought to an end as the kidnappers are clashing [with one another] and there are many conflicting reports. We do not intend to carry out any military operation as this would lead to heavy losses.
[Asharq Al-Awsat] The Somali Prime Minister said that he would not forbid French military intervention?
[Hassan] Yes, this is the government position.
[Asharq Al-Awsat] Are you unconvinced of the French military intervention? [Hassan] I do not think that such intervention will be beneficial, we prepared a plan to release the hostages by force, but this proved too difficult and we turned away from implementing this. We do not know the extent of the possibility of the French intervening and [successfully] freeing the hostages.
[Asharq Al-Awsat] Are there any communications [between you and the hostages]?,..more..

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.
