LA TIMES Young men vanish into Somalia, stirring fears of terrorist recruitment, Somalia Al-Shabaab recruiting website kataaib.net is in Vancouver WA

LA TIMES ...Young men vanish into Somalia, stirring fears of terrorist recruitment, Somalia Al-shabaab recruiting website www.kataaib.net is based in Vancouver WA, USA and has been operating for well over a year in violation od US State Department mandates.

UPDATE.. The shut down of the Al-Shabaab website was first reported on Sunday 1/25/2009 at 10:01 pm by private investigator Bill Warner based on a tip from the US Military, see my post here, Sunday, January 25, 2009, SOMALI AL-SHABAAB TERRORIST RECRUITING WEBSITE HOSTED IN VANCOUVER WA USA, WWW.KATAAIB.NET APPEARS TO BE SHUT DOWN..
Reporting from Minneapolis -- Tall and lean, with a wispy mustache and shy smile, 17-year-old Burhan Hassan chalked up A's last fall as a senior at Roosevelt High School, vowing to become a doctor or lawyer.

After school and on weekends, he studied Islam at the nearby Abubakar As-Saddique mosque. He joined its youth group.

He wanted to go to Harvard," said his uncle Osman Ahmed. "That was his dream."Instead Hassan has gone to Somalia, the anarchic East African nation that his family fled when he was a toddler. On election day, Hassan and five other youths slipped away from their homes here, and anguished family members now say they may have joined a Taliban-style Islamic militia that U.S. authorities call a terrorist organization (Al-Shabaab).

The youths, who have U.S. passports, followed a well-trod trail from Minneapolis to Mogadishu. Another group took off in August. The FBI believes that over the last two years, 12 to 20 Minnesotans have gone to Somalia.

As a result, a joint terrorism task force led by the FBI is scrambling to determine if extremist Islamic groups are seeking recruits here in the nation's largest Somali community -- as well as in San Diego, Seattle, Boston and other cities.

Well look no further than the Al-Shabaab terrorist recruiting website www.kataaib.net that is run by the Al-Shabaab out of the Dotster Web hosting Co. in Vancouver WA, USA, right under the noses of the so ever vigilant FBI.

We're aware that these guys have traveled from Minneapolis and other parts of the country," said E.K. Wilson, the FBI spokesman here. "Our concern obviously is they've been recruited somehow to fight or to train as terrorists.

"Topping their concern is the case of Shirwa Ahmed, a 27-year-old former Minneapolis resident who went to Somalia in 2007 -- and who may be what Wilson called "the first occasion of a U.S. citizen suicide bomber."

It might seem odd to seek a restorative cure in a country that has been mired in war for 18 years and now is known for its pirates. But many Somalis in Minneapolis retain strong political and social ties to the intrigues and battles in their homeland.

Many Somalis moved to Minnesota for good schools, community aid and unskilled jobs in meat-processing plants and factories. A thriving Somali community, estimated at 60,000, has taken root in the state. The largest group lives in and around a bleak cluster of high-rise apartments beside a busy highway in eastern Minneapolis, an area known as Little Mogadishu.

When Burhan Hassan failed to come home Nov. 4, his mother checked his room and realized that his passport, laptop computer and cellphone were gone.Family members also found paperwork showing he had nearly $2,000 in airline tickets from Universal Travel -- a tiny business tucked behind the high-rises -- even though he had no job or savings. Universal Travel Services www.univtravel.com 1421 Washington Ave S Minneapolis, MN.

The itinerary showed the six youths flew to Amsterdam, changed planes for Nairobi and caught a connecting flight to the Indian Ocean port of Malindi, Kenya, the boys boarded boats and headed north to Kismayo, a Somali port that Al-Shabaab seized last summer.
