Interview With Shafik Hammami

Shafik is the father of Omar Shafik Hammamiaka Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki.

CNN: While others enjoy the approaching summer, barbeques and baseball, one American family scours the internet looking for clues to whether their son is alive.

U.S. authorities also want to find him but not to secure a happy family reunion.
Their son, Omar Hammami, is a wanted Islamist terrorist fighting -- or barely surviving -- in Somalia with a $5 million bounty on his head.

Now after an apparent assassination attempt on their son, the family opens up in an exclusive CNN interview about how their son grew up to be a terrorist, how their lives are changed forever and how their joint faith has seen them survive burdens that could have destroyed other families.

Read the rest.

CNN's interview with Shafik is here. I've uploaded a portion of that interview for embed here.
