“These events can happen anywhere in our country at any time,” Napolitano said. “We cannot limit our efforts to a few urban areas.”Houston law enforcement officials said after the hearing that they have considered homegrown terrorism threat for years and are working to prevent an attack on potential targets, including ports, oil refineries and the Johnson Space Center.“Too many local law enforcement people think the only way they can address homeland security is by being concerned about what's going on in foreign countries or what's coming to us from foreign countries,” said Bob Doguim, the chief of homeland security and emergency management at the Harris County Sheriff's Department. “But we address our homeland security from a different perspective.”Mueller said that while foreign al-Qaida operatives are still determined to attack the U.S., his bureau is devoting increased attention to the specter of “homegrown” terrorism perpetrated by American natives or legal permanent residents.“Several FBI terrorism subjects with no known connections to overseas groups have taken steps to move from violent rhetoric to action,” Mueller said. He said these “lone wolves” are more difficult to detect than terrorist groups because they operate quietly and independently. Often they get their inspiration and training online, rather than in person.But should they travel to Pakistan, Yemen, or Somalia for further training, their status as legal residents of the U.S. makes it easy to come and go...more..http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/metropolitan/6645914.html
MOGADISHU (TF.SF)—Fierce fighting between Terrorist al Shabaab and Terrorist Hizbul Islam militants has erupted in the port town of Kismayo , where the two sides have been preparing for fighting to control the Somali port city for the last three days, witnesses and officials say.
the fighting has started in the town. There are no further details about the fighting. Residents say the sound of heavy gun fire could be heard in the town. More civilians started fleeing from Kismayo early on Wednesady. Al-shabaab Terrorist has declared war on Hizbul Islam Terrorist on Wednesday and Hizbul Islam replied that they will defend any fighting from the Shabaab al- shabaab Terrorist . On the other hand there is tension in Afmadow town in the region, where al Shabaab Terrorist has reportedly deployed more fighters near the town to fight with fighters loyal to Terrorist Hizbul Islam based in the town. There is power struggle between the two Terrorist groups. Terrorist Sheik Hassan Dahir Aweys leads Hizbul Islam which is among the Islamist rebels fighting to topple the Transitional Federal Government. two Terrorist rebel groups.
The two groups have been fighting against the fragile government led by President Sheik Sharif Sheik Ahmed together since May 2009. But their dispute started when al Shabaab formed an administration in Kismayo unilaterally.

More than 250,000 people have fled renewed fighting in Mogadishu since May, bringing the total number of displaced within Somalia to over 1.5 million. Over 18,000 civilians have died since early 2007.
On the day of his death, Khalafe was carrying 25 Somali Bibles he hoped to deliver to an underground fellowship in Somalia. At a checkpoint controlled by al Shabaab--a rebel group linked with al Qaeda which has taken over large parts of the war-torn country--bus passengers were ordered to disembark for inspection. Voice of the Martyrs Canada and Compass Direct reports agree on the events following the discovery of the Bibles. The assailants used photos they found to determine if they could match the faces to any passengers. When they noticed a resemblance to Khalafe, they asked if the Bibles were his. The radicals shot and killed him when he did not respond. Militants then displayed his body in Merca along with the Bibles as a warning to others. Later that day, a militant reported Khalafe's death on a radio program.
Khalafe, who had been a Christian for 45 years, was active in sharing the Good News and baptizing converts from Islam. Khalafe's family is in mourning, but due to the risk of exposure, his wife and seven children were unable to participate in his burial because of the risk of being killed by militants, reports Compass Direct. Despite the shock and brutality of Khalafe's death, the hope of the Gospel is still going forward through the underground church. Keep praying for wisdom for the workers who continue to follow Christ. http://www.onenewsnow.com/Missions/Default.aspx?id=703106

Security analysts warn that the failed Horn of Africa state is a safe haven for militants, including foreign jihadists, and Washington says al Shabaab is al Qaeda's proxy in the country. Hizbul said if it were attacked in the port of Kismayu its fighters would retaliate everywhere in Somalia, including the capital Mogadishu, where the two groups have battled together against the government and African Union peacekeepers.
Relations between al Shabaab and Hizbul Islam degenerated last week after al Shabaab named its own council to run Kismayu, which is a lucrative source of taxes and other income. Until then, the two groups had run the port in an uneasy coalition...more,,http://www.alertnet.org/thenews/newsdesk/LU001642.htm

Yemen launched a major military offensive against al-Houthi rebels in the north in early August in an effort to overcome internal pressures undermining government control.Western and regional intelligence officials, however, say the focus by the Yemeni government on internal issues allows al-Qaida to exploit the instability to create a base in the region, The Wall Street Journal reports Intelligence officials point to a legacy of al-Qaida activity in Yemen, as evidenced by the USS Cole attack in 2000 and the temporary refuge of Osama bin Laden.
International efforts to trounce al-Qaida in Afghanistan and Pakistan, meanwhile, may push insurgents to areas with less external military focus, witnessed by the recent collaboration of the Somali and Yemeni branches of al-Qaida.U.N. officials, for their part, note al-Qaida may be using Yemen to help Somali rebels topple the government in Mogadishu.Apart from that, aid groups note that the conflict, entering its seventh week, is creating mass displacement and a humanitarian disaster in one of the poorest countries in the world
Seven jehadist from Somalia fighting with al-Houth rebels captured
A U.S. counterterrorism official said that the combined advances have led to the deaths of more than a dozen senior figures in al-Qaeda and allied groups in Pakistan and elsewhere over the past year, most of them in 2009. Officials described Osama bin Laden and his main lieutenants as isolated and unable to coordinate high-profile attacks.
Recent claims of significant success against al-Qaeda have become part of White House deliberations about U.S. strategy in Afghanistan, centering on a request by Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, the top American and NATO commander there, for an expanded counterinsurgency campaign that will require more U.S. troops. Discussions began in earnest Tuesday as senior national security and military officials met with President Obama.
Those within the administration who have suggested limiting large-scale U.S. ground combat in Afghanistan, including Vice President Biden, have pointed to an improved counterterrorism effort as evidence that Obama's principal objective -- destroying al-Qaeda -- can be achieved without an expanded troop presence. ..more..http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/09/29/AR2009092903699.html
Somali government spokesman Sheik Abdirisaq Qeylow confirmed the battle took place but did not give any other details. An AU peacekeeping force spokesman, Barigye Bahoku, also confirmed the fighting.Later yesterday, residents reported missiles pounding Mogadishu’s main market and said they were fired from an AU base nearby. Witnesses say they saw at least five civilians killed.However, Bahoku said AU soldiers did not target the market in the city’s south and instead were firing to protect a cargo ship docking at the port, which was being attacked by Islamic insurgents.The African Union force, which is meant to protect key government installations such as the main air and sea ports, has become the main target of Islamic militias keen to overthrow the fragile UN-backed government. A loose alliance of Islamic groups opposed to the government controls most of Mogadishu and other areas of southern Somalia.
Somalia has not had an effective government since 1991, when Hawiye warlords overthrew Honourable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre and then turned on each other.Earlier yesterday, a firing squad of 10 al-Shabab men killed two Somalis in Mogadishu’s main livestock market after the group accused them of being spies for foreign organizations.

Somali Government Claims Al-Shabab Executed Innocent
Somalia's U.N.-backed transitional government has condemned the execution of two men Monday by al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab militants and says al-Shabab murdered innocent civilians. Somali government spokesman Farhan Asanyo says the two Somali men executed by a firing squad in the capital Mogadishu had no ties to the government or to the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, as al-Shabab alleged.Asanyo says the men were innocent Somalis falsely accused and murdered by al-Shabab militants. The spokesman charged that al-Shabab often targets people without evidence of any wrongdoing. The executions were carried in front of hundreds of spectators after an al-Shabab-run court found one man guilty of working as spy for the African Union peacekeeping mission in Somalia and the other of providing intelligence to the CIA. Al-Shabab officials said the pair admitted their crimes before being sentenced to death. Al-Shabab is the most powerful of several Islamist insurgent groups attempting to overthrow Somalia's transitional federal government and force the withdrawal of 5,000 Ugandan and Burundian peacekeepers from Mogadishu. The militant group, listed as a terrorist organization by the United States and Australia, is considered to be a proxy group for al-Qaida. Two weeks ago, one of al-Qaida's top operatives in the region, Kenyan-born Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan, was reportedly killed in a U.S. Special Forces operation in southern Somalia. U.S. counter-terrorism officials believe Nabhan was also a senior al-Shabab official, who provided a link between the Somali group and the al-Qaida leadership based in Pakistan..more..http://www.voanews.com/english/2009-09-29-voa51.cfm
MOGADISHU, Somalia — An extremist Islamic group has executed two Somali men in the country's capital, accusing them of being spies for foreign organizations.A firing squad of 10 al-Shabab men killed the two on Monday in Mogadishu's main livestock market, says Said Yusuf, who was one of hundreds of witnesses.Al-Shabab's Mogadishu chief Ali Mohamed Hussein says the group carried out the executions after determining the men worked for the African Union peacekeeping force in Somalia and the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency.Al-Shabab controls large parts of southern Somalia and its members vow allegiance to al-Qaida. It has carried out several whippings, amputations and executions to enforce its own strict interpretation of Islam.http://www.news.ino.com/headlines/?newsid=92820090858H\T fromreflector

The NEFA Foundation has obtained new video footage of Shabaab al-Mujahideen militants fighting on the frontline in southern Somalia. The undated recording shows masked Shabaab commanders leading their charges under the official banner of Al-Qaida's "Islamic State of Iraq." Militants repeatedly demonstrate the tactics (and perils) of using "technicals"--civilian trucks and flatbeds that have large anti-aircraft weapons mounted on the rear. The video was released by Shabaab as part of a larger propaganda package titled, "Labayk Ya Usama!" ("At Your Service, O' Usama!").
The NEFA Foundation plays a role in the fight against terror through cohesive and comprehensive efforts to research, analyze, and disseminate information pertaining to past and current terrorist activities. The Foundation shares its findings with law enforcement agencies and the intelligence community where appropriate, and works with other research organizations to educate the public on the threat of terrorism. NEFA, by funding extensive field research, is able to obtain original documents as well as develop an on-the-ground understanding of events.

Sky News reporter Ashish Joshi, in the Gulf of Aden.
Anti-piracy commanders insist their patrols in the Gulf Of Aden are working despite fresh attacks in the region.Seven pirates were arrested off the coast of Somalia on Saturday after the alarm was raised by two separate Panama-flagged merchant vessels that feared they were being targeted.Turkish navy commandoes on board the TCG Gediz were then involved in a raid on a small pirate vessel.
The frigate is one of about 25 ships on counter-piracy patrols in the area.It is part of a Nato force that complements ships from the European Union and independent navies.The international anti-piracy efforts are co-ordinated by the Combined Maritime Force (CMF) based in Bahrain, which has its own specialist task force called CTF 151.Speaking on board the CTF's flagship battleship, the USS Anzio, Admiral Scott E Sanders said efforts off the Somali coast were yielding results.'Due to the effective co-ordination between the many navies operating in the Gulf Of Aden pirates are having to resort to multiple attacks,' he said.'They will target one ship after another because their attempts are being thwarted by our swift response tactics.''The fact that the international maritime community has tightened up its procedures is evident in the recent failed attempts.'Somali pirate attacks in the Gulf of Aden peaked between the end of 2008 and the beginning of 2009.The internationally recommended transit corridor (IRTC) was created in February 2009.The 464-mile stretch of water runs right through the middle of the Gulf Of Aden.It is one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world, with some 33,000 merchant ships passing through the channel every year.By having a recognised corridor it is much easier to co-ordinate international efforts against pirate attacks.Anti-piracy commanders say the drop in the number of hijackings is evidence their strategy is working.Royal Navy Captain Keith Blount, the chief of staff on board the USS Anzio believed the patrols were working.'Conditions have been perfect for pirate attacks in recent weeks yet no ships have been successfully taken despite a number of attempts,' he said.That's down to the standing patrols from CTF 151 and those of the other navies in the area together with the co-operation of the merchant marine community.'Four ships and their crews were still being held hostage by Somali pirates and negotiations to secure their release were ongoing.H\T http://www.skynews.com.au/world/article.aspx?id=377016
The source, close to the Yemeni army, told the Arabic-issued Akhbar al-Yawm newspaper that the Somalis were among 20 Yemeni rebels captured on August 11.
The source further predicated that Somalis have connections to Somali Jihadi groups supported by Iranian and Eritrean intelligence agencies.http://www.alsahwanet.net/view_nnews.asp?sub_no=401_2009_09_27_73137
Go beyond words
Mr Kirwa called on the international community to take immediate and effective action, to go beyond words and act against all spoilers in the region. Igad and the African Union recently made strong recommendations for sanctions against Eritrea and other entities, “aiding, financing and facilitating resources for the al-Shabaab and other negative entities”.The resolutions were tabled before the UN Security Council in June. The US has also pushed for an immediate endorsement of the proposals. However, other Security Council members: China, France, Russia and the UK, are divided on the resolutions.
The resolutions had proposed air and sea blockage in the region to prevent the flow of arms and foreign combatants to Somalia. They also proposed freezing the assets and imposing travel ban against individuals involved in the Somalia crisis.Eritrean top officials on the list include Yemane Gebreab — head of political affairs and presidential adviser at the People’s Front for Democracy and Justice (PFDJ) party, Ali Abdu — Information minister and Teame Abrehasillase — Intelligence chief. They are among the individuals allegedly involved in arms smuggling activities in Somalia...MORE..http://www.nation.co.ke/News/africa/-/1066/664534/-/136biwrz/-/
But important as they were, those news reports masked a surprising and perhaps heartening long-term trend: Many students of terrorism believe that in important ways, Al Qaeda and its ideology of global jihad are in a pronounced decline — with its central leadership thrown off balance as operatives are increasingly picked off by missiles and manhunts and, more important, with its tactics discredited in public opinion across the Muslim world.
“Al Qaeda is losing its moral argument about the killing of innocent civilians,” said Emile A. Nakhleh, who headed the Central Intelligence Agency’s strategic analysis program on political Islam until 2006. “They’re finding it harder to recruit. They’re finding it harder to raise money.”
Marc Sageman, a former C.I.A. officer and forensic psychiatrist, counted 10 serious plots with Western targets, successful and unsuccessful, that could be linked to Al Qaeda or its allies in 2004, a peak he believes was motivated by the American-led invasion of Iraq the year before. In 2008, he said, there were just three.
Dr. Sageman has been in the forefront of those who argue that the centrally led Al Qaeda responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks is giving way to a generation of dispersed, aspiring terrorists linked largely by the Internet — who still pose a danger, but of a lesser degree.“I said two years ago it was a diminishing problem, and everything I’ve seen since then has confirmed it,” Dr. Sageman said of what counterterrorism specialists call Al Qaeda Central.,more..http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/27/weekinreview/27shane.html?hp
[Abdelhak Senna/AFP/Getty Images] Security officers in Morocco rounded up 24 suspected terrorist recruiters.
Moroccan authorities dismantled a terrorist network that allegedly recruited suicide bombers and guerrilla fighters for al-Qaeda in Iraq, Somalia and Afghanistan. Some 24 suspects in several cities were apprehended as part of a co-ordinated security operation.
Security forces made the arrests in a series of towns. According to the ministry, the network was co-ordinating with terrorist in Sweden, Belgium and the Syria-Iraq area to provide new recruits. The network had already sent twenty volunteers for suicide operations in Iraq, and approached ten more local Islamists for similar purposes.
These advances are part of Morocco's continued fight against terrorism, using a strategy based on vigilance and the dismantling of terrorist cells.
The ministry said that the network was also planning large-scale acts of terrorism in Morocco; to this end, members were preparing to welcome al-Qaeda demolitionists to acquire their knowledge of making explosives.
Mohammed Benhammou, a Moroccan academic who chairs the African Federation for Strategic Studies, told Magharebia that the link with Iraq and other countries mentioned in the press statement is nothing new and that the strategy of recruiting volunteers is well-known. He believes Morocco has nothing to worry about, as long as everyone remains vigilant.
"I believe there is great vigilance in Morocco," he said. "The pre-emptive strike policy is bearing fruit."
Benhammou emphasised that it is essential for all countries to co-ordinate their efforts at the regional and international level to combat the threat. He says co-operation must be clear and serious, and based on real intelligence.He said the real threat is in the Sahel-Sahara area, which is too easily penetrated. It also provides space for terrorist groups to take refuge and to train their recruits, and has also become one of their departure points for movement.Saâddine Othmani, MP and chairman of the national council of the Justice and Development Party, said that recruitment networks for Iraq and other countries now exist all over the world. He said the problem not only concerns Morocco, but extends to all countries due to the effects of globalisation and internet communication. He said that until now, Moroccan security services have been able to impede terrorist cells' activities, and that their campaign must continue to counter the ever-present threat of terrorism...more..http://www.magharebia.com/cocoon/awi/xhtml1/en_GB/features/awi/features/2009/09/25/feature-01
Find The Jihad Next Door
September 26, 2009 - by Rusty Shackleford
First, some mixed news. In the wake of the indictment against an Afghan immigrant named Najibullah Zazi, who received bomb-making training from al-Qaeda, law enforcement agents are still busy looking for possible accomplices.A detainment motion made by the attorney general’s office against Zazi mentions that he “and others flew … to Peshawar, Pakistan.” It was in Pakistan that Zazi attended an al-Qaeda training camp and learned how to construct bombs.
While unstated, the implication is that Zazi did not go to these camps alone.
This is further alluded to in the detainment motion, which describes at least three other people in Colorado who were helping Zazi buy the materials necessary to make bombs.
As of this writing, several dozen Paksitani and Afghan immigrants have been questioned by the FBI. Only two have been arrested, although they have not been formally charged. Zazi’s father and an imam named Ahmad Wais Afzali, who tipped Zazi off that the FBI were investigating him, have only been accused of lying to federal investigators. Both arrests may be significant, but these two may have only obstructed the investigation. They have not been accused of being involved in the actual plot.
Which means that others involved may be on the loose and still intent on carrying out an attack.
That this is on the FBI’s mind is confirmed by several warnings that went out this week to law enforcement agents to be on the lookout for bombs or bomb-making materials like those Zazi planned to use. Also, a “senior counterterrorism official” told the New York Post that federal agents are not sure whether they have identified all those involved and disrupted the plot before the wheels were set in motion...MORE..http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/a-good-week-for-u-s-counterterrorism-efforts/

The soundless recordings show people rushing from nearby buildings after the fertilizer bomb went off. They don't show the actual explosion outside the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. The tapes were obtained by an attorney and provided to The (Oklahoma City) Oklahoman, the newspaper reported Sunday.Some of them show people fleeing their buildings through corridors cluttered with fallen debris.The FBI this summer released more than 20 recordings made from surveillance camera tapes recovered in downtown Oklahoma City. A Utah attorney, Jesse Trentadue, obtained the recordings through the federal Freedom of Information Act. Trentadue gave them to The Oklahoman because of their historical value. The Oklahoman has agreed to provide copies to the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum. Many of the recordings are identified as coming from buildings near the Murrah Building. FBI agents did not report finding any security tapes from the Murrah Building itself. Some of the images were used as evidence at bomber Timothy McVeigh's trial. McVeigh was executed in 2001. Coconspirator Terry Nichols is serving life in prison.The Oklahoman in 2006 published images from post-blast security videotapes it obtained from a source.The blast on April 19, 1995, killed 168 people and injured hundreds. It was the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.The FBI in the past refused to release the security camera recordings. That led some — including a U.S. congressman — to contend the government was hiding evidence that others were involved in the attack.Trentadue began his own inquiry into the bombing after his brother died at the Oklahoma City Federal Transfer Center in August 1995. He alleges guards mistook his brother for a bombing suspect and killed his brother during an interrogation. The official cause of his brother's death is listed as suicide.
