Somali terror group Al-Shabbab allied with Osama Bin Laden's Al Qaeda eyes adding Americans to ranks, Al-Shabaab recruits with violent jihad online.
The FBI has expressed fears Al-Shabaab jihadists might return to Somali communities like St. Paul, Minn., New York City and Columbus Ohio, to wage war here at home, note the western type clothes on the Al-Shabaab recruits in the publicity photo above, one guy on the left has a gray sport coat on and is wearing designer white sandals, these dudes are right off the boat.
On Friday 6/04/2010, Anthony Joseph Tracy, 35, was set free after pleading guilty to human smuggling charges and serving several months in prison in a case shrouded in secrecy. Tracy, a former informant (CI) for Immigration and Customs Enforcement and two U.S. intelligence agencies (NYPD confidential informant) going back at least as far as 2002, was collared at JFK Airport last January. He copped to helping 272 Somalis illegally enter the U.S. from Kenya through Cuba but failed a lie detector test when he denied smuggling al-Shabaab fighters here, a source told the Daily News.
Now the FBI and ICE are hunting down at least 130 Somalis Tracy brought here out of fears some might have been from al-Shabaab, the source said.
The Al-Shabaab's anti-American group's popularity surged after its former leader, Al Qaeda's Somalia chief Aden Hashi Farah, known as "Ayro," his photo above, was killed by a U.S. strike two years ago that enraged Somalis, more from this source...............
The US alleges that some of al-Shabaab's leaders are "affiliated" (they are) to al-Qaeda and have links to the group's leadership hiding out in Pakistan's tribal areas. Certainly it is known that some Somali jihadists are veterans of the Afghan training camps of the 1990s - including Aden Hashi Ayro, killed in Somalia by the USA, who was the leader of al-Shabaab.
The Al-Shabaab terror group had it's official website, http://www.kataaib.net/ hosted in the USA by the Dotster Web Company in Vancouver WA, I have been attacked by the Media in Vancouver WA who have printed stories claiming that my insistence on shutting down the Al-Shabaab website, somehow borders on Internet Censorship (Bill Warner Internet Censor), wake up you did not need to continue to support their website from Vancouver WA for over 2 years. "The Columbian Newspaper; In our view: Internet censor (Bill Warner), Wednesday, May 07, 2008". The Columbian Newspaper runs an attack piece against me (Bill Warner) because I complained about their softball article on the severity of the Somalia website kataaib.net that is the mouthpiece for the al-Shabaab linked al-Qaeda group espousing Islamic terrorism propaganda daily.
According to an affidavit by ICE Special Agent Thomas K. Eyre, “On or about April 9, 2009, Anthony Joseph Tracy departed the United States and traveled to Kenya.” Then, “On January 18, 2010, Tracy entered the U.S. at JFK International Airport in New York and voluntarily consented to be interviewed by FBI and ICE Special Agents and a Detective with the NYPD. Tracy said that he helped approximately 272 Somalis (some linked to Al-Shabaab) travel illegally to the United States, using his business, Noor Services Limited, email account email@example.com
Based on a review of identification records and other evidence, I know that Anthony Joseph Tracy is a white male who was bom in Pennsylvania on October XX, 1974. Tracy is assigned Social Security Number 196-56-XXXX. Tracy converted to Islam while in a U.S. prison in the 1990's and also goes by the names Yusuf Tracy and Yusuf Noor. On or about April 9, 2009, Tracy departed the United States and traveled to Kenya. While in Kenya, Tracy reported to the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi that his U.S. passport bearing number 445982726 was seized by Kenyan authorities. On January 15,2010, Tracy was subsequently issued a replacement U.S. passport, bearing number 720109785, and returned to the United States on or about January 18,2010.
Tracy admitted that he would help the aliens by providing and manufacturing fake documents that are required to obtain Cuban visas, such as bank statements reflecting residency in Kenya for approximately 6 months, hotel accommodations in Cuba, and round trip airline tickets.” During a February 2010 polygraph, “Tracy was asked if he knowingly assisted any al-Shabaab members attempting to travel out of Kenya.
Tracy admitted that he was approached by al-Shabaab in Kenya, but he claimed that he refused to assist them (he later failed a lie detector test).” On February 4,2010, Tracy voluntarily consented to a polygraph examination which was conducted at the ICE Office of Investigations in Sterling, Virginia.
On the evening of February 4, 2010, Tracy voluntarily provided access to allow law enforcement officers to view his email account, firstname.lastname@example.org. A review of this email account revealed one email in his inbox, dated January 15,2010. This email had been sent to Tracy in response to an email Tracy had sent the day before, using his alias "Yusuf." It was addressed to another user whose hotmail screen name begins with a "g". In the body of Tracy's email, he stated ".. .i will be back in kenya at the end of february, so contact me then and i will assist you inshallah. i helped alot of somalis and most are good but there are some who are bad and i leave them to ALLAH...."
The affidavit noted that “Tracy stated that he knew that the final destination for the Somalis for whom he obtained visas was the United States, with the visas fraudulently obtained in Kenya being the first step in the process.” During April 2010 court testimony, Eyre said, “We believe all the individuals are present in the United States. But by the virtue of [Tracy's] successful smuggling scheme, we are having difficulty finding them, more from this source....."
Somalis, FBI in other U.S. cities on alert for terrorist recruiting. While federal agents and Somali leaders in the Twin Cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis struggle to find answers to whether up to 20 young men may have returned to Somalia to fight or receive terrorist training, leaders in Columbus Ohio are scrambling to prevent anything similar from happening here. They are preaching against terror in the mosques, monitoring their sons after school and sharing information with the FBI. But other cities with large Somali populations are being scrutinized, too: Boston, Seattle, San Diego and Columbus, which has the second-largest population of Somali refugees in the United States behind Minneapolis -- an estimated 40,000 to 50,000 people, more from this source....
