Omar Hammami Death Watch Update

Imagine my surprise and heartbreak when I returned from vacation to find that Omar Hammami had been shot in the neck and was probably buzzard bait somewhere in the Somali desert. I and I'd missed the whole sheebang!

Then imagine the sigh of relief when Stable Hand emailed with a He's not dead Jim!


Hiding in a hole? Damn that's a letdown. I thought the brave Muj would stand to the death while facing impossible odds. Silly me.

Anyway, I'm back now so you may proceed with the operation. Fire when ready.

Update: It looks like Shabaab is creating a Kangaroo Sharia case against Omar.

It appears his group is holding out in the forest against those seeking him. It appears he's not very optimistic about the eventual outcome.

He became so powerful, the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which, eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew. Then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. It's ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself."
