Omar Hammami Death Watch Episode V

Selected Wisdom:

Since May 3, no word from Omar. So…

What happened to Omar? Did he escape Shabaab’s grasp yet again or are Omar’s tweets really just his hopes for protection, redemption and survival?
Are Shabaab’s militias really disobeying Godane? Shabaab has launched a couple of suicide bombing attacks on Mogadishu over the past few weeks but these have mostly killed civilians from what I gathered. Is Shabaab’s indiscriminate killing of civilians and their hunting of Omar finally eroding Godane’s power? Omar claimed in another tweet that many key Shabaab leaders are against Godane. But how would we know if this is true?
