A Series of Al Shabaab-Related Federal Indictments Unsealed During 2010 in Mobile, San Diego, Minneapolis, St. Louis, North Bergen N.J. and Portland OR, Al-Shabaab is in the USA.

A series of indictments unsealed during 2010 illustrate the continued support among U.S. residents for the Somali-based terrorist organization Al-shabaab with links to Al Qaeda.

1).  Feds Unseal Terror Charges Against 2 NJ Men....Federal authorities on Sunday, June 6, 2010 unsealed charges against two New Jersey men arrested the night before as they allegedly tried to join an Al Qaeda-linked group, Al-Shabaab, in war-torn Somalia and kill Americans there.  The men were inspired at least in part by Omar Hammami, the Alabama-born face of the Somalia-based terrorist group Al-Shabaab, and Anwar al-Awlaki, the New Mexico-born cleric now hiding in Yemen who has been linked to the Fort Hood shootings, the Christmas Day bombing attempt and the failed Times Square car bomb plot, according to federal prosecutors.

Mohamed Mahmood Alessa of North Bergen, N.J., and Carlos Eduardo Almonte of Elmwood Park, N.J., have been charged with conspiring to kill or injure persons outside the United States. Both are U.S. citizens.  They were taken into custody late Saturday night at JFK International Airport, as they attempted to board separate flights to Egypt on their way to Somalia, where the group al-Shabaab is battling the nation’s fledgling transitional government.  After the FBI received a tip in October 2006, an undercover officer with the New York Police Department’s Intelligence Division recorded numerous meetings and conversations with Alessa and Almonte about their violent plans, according to court documents.

2).  Fourteen Charged with Providing Material Support to Somalia-Based Terrorist Organization Al-Shabaab on Thursday, August 5, 2010.  unsealed today in the District of Minnesota, the Southern District of Alabama and the Southern District of California charging 14 individuals with terrorism violations for providing money, personnel and services to the foreign terrorist organization al-Shabaab.

In the Southern District of Alabama (Mobile), prosecutors unsealed a superseding indictment charging Omar Shafik Hammami also known as “Abu Mansour al-Amriki,” or “Farouk,” a U.S. citizen and former resident of Daphne Alabama, with providing material support to al-Shabaab. The three-count indictment alleges that Omar Hammami provided material support, including himself as personnel, to terrorists; conspired (web master for ) to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, al-Shabaab, and provided material support to al-Shabaab.   Omar Hammami faces a potential 15 years in prison for each of the three counts of the indictment.  

Somalia’s al-Shabaab youth movement becoming strongest Al Qaeda force we have on the planet and the locals in Vancouver WA would not shut down the al-Shabaab recruiting website.   The Al-Shabaab terror group had it’s official recruiting website,  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 Columbia Newspaper you did not need to continue to support the Al-Shabaab 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 (private investigator Bill Warner) because I complained about their softball article on the severity of the Somalia Al-Shabba website  that is the mouthpiece for the al-Shabaab linked al-Qaeda group espousing Islamic terrorism propaganda daily run by Omar Hammami from Daphne AL USA.

Separately, prosecutors in the Southern District of California unsealed an indictment charging Jehad Serwan Mostafa, a U.S. citizen and former resident of California, with providing material support to al-Shabaab.

3). In the District of Minnesota, prosecutors unsealed two indictments. One indictment charges Amina Farah Ali and Hawo Mohamed Hassan with providing funds to al-Shabaab. These two defendants, who are naturalized U.S. citizens and residents of Minnesota, were arrested today. Separately, prosecutors unsealed a third superseding indictment charging 10 men with terrorism offenses for leaving the United States to join al-Shabaab.

4).  In two indictments unsealed on November 2 and November 3, 2010, three San Diego residents, a man from Minneapolis and another from St. Louis were arrested and indicted on terror financing charges and conspiracy to provide material support to Al Shabaab, an Al Qaeda-linked terrorist organization based in Somalia. A sixth defendant indicted on similar charges, Kenya and Somalia resident Duane Mohamed Diriye, remains at large.

The three San Diego men, Basaaly Saeed Moalin, Mohamed Mohamed Mohamud and Issa Doreh,  were arrested October 31 and November 1 and are accused of transferring money to Al Shabaab at the request of Aden Hashi Ayrow, the former military leader of the terrorist group. According to the indictment, Moalin coordinated the fundraising efforts and money transfers with Mohamud and Doreh. They reportedly sent about $9000 to Al Shabaab in 2007 and 2008. After Ayrow's death in May 2008, the men allegedly continued to transfer money to Al Shabaab. Moalin, a taxi driver, reportedly taught weekend classes at the local Somali mosque. Mohamud, an imam, has led prayer services at Masjid Al-Ansar for the past 10 years.

A separate indictment charging a San Diego woman with providing personnel and money to Al Shabaab was unsealed in a California federal court two weeks later. U.S. permanent resident Nima Ali Yusuf, 24, who was charged with conspiracy to provide material support to Al Shabaab and making false statements in a matter involving international terrorism, was arrested on November 12, 2010.

5).  The other indictment filed in St. Louis federal court alleges that Mohamud Abdi Yusuf, a taxi driver, sent money to Al Shabaab supporters in Somalia, including Duane Mohamed Diriye. In Somalia, Diriye allegedly facilitated the receipt of the funds and transferred the money to members of Al Shabaab. Yusuf is also charged with conspiring with Abdi Mahdi Hussein, an employee of a licensed money remitting business, to structure the financial transactions in order to evade law enforcement detection.

6).  FBI Thwarts Somali-born Terrorist Mohamed Osman Mohamud Car Bomb Attempt at Portland Holiday Tree Lighting. Somali-born Mohamed Osman Mohamud had planned on committing some form of violent jihad since the age of 15, since 2005 in Portlanr OR.  Mohamed Osman Mohamud was self radicalized by the Somali al-Shabaab website hosted in nearby Vancouver WA.  Somalia’s increasingly influential al-Shabaab “youth movement” is causing new jitters for U.S. terrorism fighters. The group, boasting alliances to AQAP in Yemen and Osama Bin Laden’s Pakistani-based terror network, has up to 3,000 fighters – and a batch of American recruits.
