American Jihadi From Seattle Imprisoned by al-Shabaab
Young American aficionados of al Shabaab and al Qaeda (Europeans too): Listen up! You probably thought that if you joined Shabaab/al Qaeda you might eventually get thrown in jail. That’s a good bet. However, you probably also thought when you got thrown in jail it would be a U.S. jail or even worse a foreign jail of a U.S. counterterrorism partner. But, you would be wrong. The two most likely results of joining al Shabaab are:Also Omar went full retard today when he said he believed in attacking American interests as stated a recent FBI press release. So that leaves the number of folks willing to cut Omar a break at a big fat zero. Karma is bound to catch up with him, and soon methinks.
Shabaab will eventually betray you and kill you.
Shabaab will throw you in Shabaab jail…(Even worse than being in a U.S. or foreign partner prison.)
... Today, revealed that the other American foreign fighter imprisoned by Shabaab may be Said Fidhin – an American from Seattle, Washington...
Its sad for the mothers, fathers, widows and orphans. But if for some reason a drone or Shabaab found Omar in bay/bokol I'd care a lot less than I did yesterday.
Update: Speaking of Bakool.
A veritable paradise.
