This guy obviously isn’t a refugee, but when I noticed the FBI involved in his interrogation I figured they were fishing for information on America’s Somali missing refugee youths! See ‘Al Shabaab capable of attacking inside the US,’ here.
From All Headline News (hat tip: Janet):
Nearly two months after secretly interrogating a Somali al-Qaeda suspect aboard a U.S. warship, military authorities have sent Ahmed Abdulkadir Warsame, who is believed to have worked with Somali Islamic insurgent group al-Shabaab and al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, to New York for a trial.
Prosecutors have charged Warsame, who is in his mid-20s, with possession of weapons, his alleged link with the two groups and seven other offenses. Warsame is also charged with training militants and brokering an arms’ deal with al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula on al Shabaab’s behalf. If convicted, Warsame will face life imprisonment.
The Somali suspect was reportedly arrested two months ago while he was traveling between Yemen and Somalia on a fishing trawler. Military authorities took him to the U.S. ship for interrogation, where he was also questioned by FBI agents.
I’m all for putting these terrorists on trial in full public view in the US (not the 911 mastermind though) as I said here the other day about the Iraqi refugee alleged terrorists in Kentucky. It’s important for the public to see what we are doing in the “war on terror”—put it on TV too!
