FBI Director: Al Qaeda-Linked Somali Group Could Attack U.S

During a hearing on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, FBI Director Robert Mueller was asked if members of al-Shabaab, which translates as "mujahideen youth," would send American recruits back to the U.S. to launch attacks.

"I would think that we have seen some information that the leaders would like to undertake operations outside of Somalia," Mueller told the Senate Homeland Security Committee.

Mueller said he is "absolutely" concerned that Americans who traveled to Somalia to train as terrorists would have U.S. legal status and would therefore be able to return to the United States and carry out attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, the bovine excrement meter just sucked a valve on this one.

Number one, who in their right minds (other than very brave aid organization workers, hired mercenaries, or covert American troops) are travelling to Somalia right now?

That number has to be staggeringly small, and quite easy to track.

And second, on that statement by Mueller, "I would think that we have seen some information that the leaders would like to undertake operations outside of Somalia,"is something that loses all credibility upon examination.

The phrase"...would like" doesn't address how the devil funding for such an operation or the logistics necessary to make something like this happen.

This is just another "booga booga" to attempt to keep the American people distracted from what is happening in their own country, courtesy of a government which can't fix the economic problems it has created, and is drowning in a sea of debt We the People can never repay.
