Thanks again to the Baron at Gates of Viennawho just sent news that 40 (four-0) Somali young men have disappeared from the Twin Cities recently.   Two days ago we reported the number at about 20. From 5 Eyewitness News today:

Forty young Somali men from the Twin Cities are missing and federal investigators believe they may be back in Somalia training as terrorists.

“We have active Al Qaeda cells recruiting these people,” said Omar Jamal with the Somali Justice Advocacy Center.

Unless he has had some sort of conversion, I wouldn’t trust this Omar Jamal as far as I could throw him!  He has proven in the past to be a master news manipulator (see my post linked above).    Don’t ask me what his game would be in directing the blame to Al Qaeda?   AQ just seems a logical target, so what might he be steering authorities away from?  Be sure to watch Jamal in action on the KSTP-TV film clip.

The big question for us is, are the 40 missing men coming back to share their new found knowledge here in the US.  

CIA Director Michael Hayden acknowledges a growing tie between Al Qaeda and Somali terrorist groups. Federal investigators believe these missing men are training for terrorist attacks overseas, but can’t be sure they won’t return the the Twin Cities someday to carry out an attack.

Or, here is another thought, maybe, just maybe they haven’t left the US.  What if they are still here and our spinmeister supreme is leading authorities astray?  Kind of convienent that the Twin Cities “recruiter” can’t talk (having already been blown to bits).

See yesterday’s post with suggestions for the Homeland Security to check a few other US cities.

    On the Vietnam question, here is something Judy wrote way back in January, apparently some Vietnamese can be deported.

    thanks, Mark

    I am aware that some Somalis HAVE been deported, but only a couple times and it was very controversial, since legal deportation has to have a reciprocal agreement with the country that they are deported to. The previous deportation of Somalis was very post 911 and usually isn’t done and I don’t think it’s the standard practice.

    For example, we still have no deportation agreement with Viet Nam that I am aware of, despite re-established diplomatic relations. (I could be wrong about this if there have been any recent developments, but I learned this from personal experience).

    However, at the very least, Mr. Jamal should have been sent back to Canada, don’t you think? (UNLESS he was actually applying for asylum from CANADA!!!).

    The US does deport Somalis back to Somalia. They take them to the border of Somalia and push them over the borderline. I believe there was a Supreme Court ruling a couple of years ago that approved deporting people to countries with no working government.

    Omar Jamal was convicted of entering the US from Canada and applying for asylum (or refugee status, I can’t remember) without acknowledging that he had first entered Canada as a refugee. He is not mentally challenged. There is envy and resentment among the older leaders that he has taken too much of the spotlight. Jamal is younger and more fluent in English then the other leaders, i.e. more assimilated. Some members of the media kept using him as a contact person and never went to other Somali leaders for input and comment on a variety of issues. Was that Jamal’s fault or were the media lazy?

    as far as anyone knows, Omar Jamal was convicted of something or other and ordered deported quite a while back. That hasn’t seemed to stop him (or Aunt Zeituni) from continuing to operate. I think the problem is, since we have no diplomatic relations with Somalia (hell, there is really no goverment there anyway) that we are not able to deport Somali nationals, therefore they are free to remain in the US under very questionable immigration status. Can someone more knowledgeable than me(not hard to find, I hope) comment on this? Also, this is just my guess, but the guy has set himself up as ” spokesperson” and he is fluent in English, therefore the media lap it up and take him at face value.(Let’s face it, they take the easy way to cover a story and we should never assume they do their homework). The guy is a convicted criminal!

    My question is who, Omar Jamal brother who do you represent? Whenever some things happens why are you the first person to go the new people? I know for sure you do not represent the Somali Community in Minnesota, because more than 90% of the Somalis in Minnesota think you are mentally challenged, so I don’t even know why the news people are wasting their time to interview you. Brother your facts do not make any sense.

    RRW-“I am thinking we should be sending this info. around to every city government that has a large Somali population—just bypass the media generally and get it out to local governments.”
    Good idea! Readers would have to put together a list of local and State contacts.A general”clearinghouse”type of thing by state or region would help.I sometimes email a reporter at the Emporia Gazette,a local radio talk-show host,and various State Reps.Their websites and contact info is already in my”bookmarks”-pretty simple really.I’ve reported a few things happening around the Kansas region to Shelbyville,for example.
    It seems there are a few local reporters that will run with new information,I wonder if they should be on the list.They might be up for it if they know that the MSM would be out of the loop,and would have to come to them or their counterpart in the next State.This might also help keep local government officials accountable,knowing that they’ve been informed.But RRW and it’s blogroll links is already one of the best places to start research for news or an article anyway.

    this is a big deal! I’ve always been worried about this. Whether they’ve left the country (I hope) or not, they could be the next big danger.

    I know the reports seem all anectotal, but I would hope some efforts are being made to report their identities to DHS.

    On the other hand , they could have simply gone off to Los Vegas to see Bette Midler.

    Blulitespecial, thanks for sending more info. to ABC—good thinking.

    I haven’t had an extra minute, but since the mainstream media generally does not inform the public adequately, I am thinking we should be sending this info. around to every city government that has a large Somali population—just bypass the media generally and get it out to local governments.

    I’m wondering… did these guys have American passports? If so, they could be tracked through various airports, could they not? I had a 16 year old son traveling this past summer within the US and he had to show a US passport for ID!

    And, I would also like to know if Somali young men got on planes in some of our other hot Somali cities.

  122. blulitespecial said

    I just sent a bit more info on this to ABC news,including some about the 80% fraud rate of the Somali in the refugee camps.I’m with Always On Watch’s comment(at the other post on this subject) on this one- Yes,the US leadership is stuck on stupid.
    The church vol-ag’s and local agencies are engaging in a cover-up of terrorist activities and they are guilty of treason.
    If the next “Denver Cyanide Somali” succeeds in wreaking havoc on US soil,maybe citizens could knock on the door of the local resettlement agency.Or the refugee contract employment company.Or the refugee “community center”. Maybe they will help you fill out a form.

    From multiple sources in the Somali community, FOX 9 has learned eight men are believed to have left on August 1, and another ten on November 4.
    Flight itineraries discovered by their families show they left Minneapolis to take the winding trip back.

    Since the families are the source for the information leading authorities to believe they left for Somalia – I too question whether they left the continental US at all.

    Authorities should post all points bulletin/wanted posters to arrest these men on suspicion of terror related activity.
