Abdirizak Bihi: Not close to the big fish yet!
Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 24, 2009
Update: Jerry Gordon’s take on the news, here, at New English Review.
Please read the Star Tribune article and note this near the end of the story. Abdirizak Bihi and I seem to be on the same page about yesterday’s announcement.
Less satisfied was Abdirizak Bihi, uncle of Burhan Hassan, 18, who was killed in June, just one day before his class graduated from Roosevelt High School in Minneapolis.
“This isn’t close anywhere to the big fish who were responsible for masterminding the recruitment of our kids,” he said.
“This is nothing, actually. What does this do?” said Nimco Ahmed, a former high school classmate of both Faarax and Shirwa Ahmed.
B. Todd Jones, U.S. attorney for Minnesota, said the investigation is not yet complete. But he hopes the message to those who would leave this country to fight in another is clear.
I hate to sound so cynical, but Mr. Ahmed is right, “What does this do?” In my opinion, it serves only to send a message to a country grieving over the massacre at Ft. Hood that the FBI is on the job after they dropped the ball, surely out of political correctness, in following Major Nidal Hasan’s jihadist trail. Imagine if one of these trained Somali terrorists actually carried out a terrorist attack in the US now! The political repercussions for the Obama Administration would be profound. Frankly it would be the nail in the coffin for Obama’s Presidency.
Endnote: We previously heard directly from Mr. Bihi who wanted us to know this. Among other things he stressed that the families were being silenced by CAIR, aka Muslim Mafia. And the sister of Zakaria Maruf, one of those indicted yesterday but believed to have died in Somalia some months ago, told us this.
