In March of 2009 I went Washington for a Senate Homeland Security hearing.
The subject was Somali Islamic radicalization in Minnesota.
The committee was hearing from Robert Mueller’s FBI and the National Counterterrorism Center, and from two men, Minnesota Somalis who feared for the future of young Somalis being lured back to Africa by al-Shabaab which ultimately joined with al Qaeda to become a powerful terror network.
Shame on our terrorism ‘experts.’
They downplayed the disappearance of at least twenty young Somali youths even as Osman Ahmed and Abdirahman Mukhtar had traveled to Washington (putting themselves in danger at home) to try to alert the committee and America to the radicalization going on in mosques in the state Senator Amy Klobuchar represents.
Normally when constituents testify on the Hill a Member of Congress or Senator from the state the constituents are from at least stops in at the hearing.
Senator Amy Klobuchar never showed her face that day. Why?
A year ago this month I told readers here at ‘Frauds and Crooks’ about the Senator’s absence.
LOL! The Fox story came ten years after that hearing and twelve years after the Somali youths began leaving the US to get training as jihadists!
