Rep. King Holds 3rd Hearing On Radical Al Shabaab Muslims July 27th, Private Eye Bill Warner Exposed Al-Shabaab in USA on May 6th 2008 in the Columbian Newspaper.

King says the hearings are intended to highlight the growing threat of terror attacks at home and abroad. The hearing, to be held July 27, will be the third of its kind and will examine the recruiting of volunteers for al Shabaab, a Somalian group that the U.S. government has designated a terror organization, and which has links to al Qaeda.

In the past three years, the FBI has uncovered a wide-ranging recruitment effort within the US, with much of the activity centered on the Somali immigrant community in Minnesota. More than a dozen young men in the U.S. have traveled to Somalia, apparently to fight for al Shabaab, which means "the youth."

"In a number of those cases, the men -- including both Somali-Americans and other converts -- have ended up carrying out suicide bombings or have otherwise been killed, without their families even knowing where their sons have gone," King said in a statement. "There has not been sufficient cooperation from mosque leaders. In at least one instance, a Minnesota imam told the desperate family of a missing young man not to cooperate with the FBI."

Three years ago, on May 6th, 2008,  I first exposed the recruiting of volunteers for Al Shabaab on a website hosted in Vancouver WA, the article written by the Columbian Newspaper in Vancouver never really addressed the seriousness of the violent al-Shabaab website hosted in Vancouver WA, it took two years before the website was finally shut down by a US Government order, way too late!  The Columbian Newspaper article is seen below;

A group of self-described anti-terrorist vigilantes has put the heat on Vancouver-based Dotster Inc. for hosting an Arabic- and Somali- language Web site that frequently praises leaders in Somalia’s al-Qaida organization.

Dotster officials said they pass along all complaints to law enforcement agencies, but unless required by law, the company does not remove its customers’ content from the Internet.

The site under fire,, is associated with the al-Shabaab movement in war- and genocide-torn Somalia, according to reports from the BBC and Reuters. In addition to praising Islamist militants, the site lists news about battles and bombings in Somalia. “Kataaib” is Arabic for “Brigades.”

Florida resident
Bill Warner (private investigator), who describes himself as an anti-terrorist vigilante, is among a collection of online activists who want to use public pressure on Dotster to get shut down. Dotster, a Web registration and hosting company, generates revenue by hosting Web sites. It has hosted since April 13, 2007, according to Internet records.

“The actual terrorists are out in the field blowing things up,”
Bill Warner said. “But there are groups like this one that associate with al-Qaida through Web sites, that help promote the ideology, help find new recruits and help the effort to support terrorism.”

“We are not in a position to judge and be a jury on what content may be legal or acceptable,” said Brian Unruh, chief financial officer at Dotster. He would not comment specifically about, except to say, “We feel we have escalated this to the right authorities.”

Complaints routine; Dotster routinely receives complaints about Web sites it hosts, and evaluates each complaint before forwarding on potentially criminal sites to law enforcement agencies, Unruh said.

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects the right to freedom of speech and expression (not for terrorists who want to kill us), and for that reason Dotster attempts to be very careful about balancing the rights of its customers with other concerns, Unruh said. (Al-Shababb in 2008 was listed as a terrorist organization by the US government).

“We don’t censor people based on what they say, as long as it’s legal,” he said. “We may not agree with some activities our customers do, but we are not in a position to be judge and jury. If the authorities issue an order to take down a site, we follow that order.”

The legal process that might eventually lead to an order to take down is too slow, Bill Warner said. He hopes that attention and a public outcry may change Dotster officials’ minds. “It’s not freedom of speech,” Bill Warner said. “This site should not be hosted in Vancouver.”
