I'm guessing the FBI and CIA already knew that the mystery man known as Abdullah al Amriki who had appeared in several al Shabaab videos with American Omar Hammami was really Cabdulaahi Ahmed Faarax, one of the missing Somali Americans suspected of going to Somalia to fight for the al Qaeda affiliate. But The Long War journal has finally put the name with the face for public consumption.

That's one missing American positively ID'd as belonging to Shabaab. Only 49 more to go!
