terrorister gör en fluga förnär. Minns Bostonmassakern där han helt negligerat de ryska
källorna som berättade att Tjetjenska terrorister var färdiga för aktion.
Shoppingcentrat är israeliskägt liksom också åtskilliga individuella butiker där.
ElderofZiyon tar upp vad jag nämnde kort i slutet av första Kenyaartikeln – att David
Cameron, PM i England, har gjort bort sig totalt och ödmjukat sig för islamistiska terrorister på
lika avskvärt sätt som Obama alltid gör. Artikeln tar upp det enkla faktum att det enda sätt
att göra något åt den omänskliga terrorn från muslimer är att muslimerna själva gör allvar med att visa att det inte representerar dem alla! Terroristerna skonade ju alla muslimer, så det gäller alla om inget annat sägs och görs. Cameron fattar inte detta självklara.
Obongon har muttrat lite löst, inget konkret mer än ”så förfärligt”. Han är ju trots allt född i
Kenya enligt sin farmor, hans far är född där, hans far och styvfar var muslimer, vad han själv
är vet ingen, det var urlänge sedan han besökte en kyrka.

Så småningom sa UD att ”ja, vi ska sända SMS till alla svenska mobiler i Thailand genast” –

President Uhuru Kenyatta is quoted as blaming the United States and Israel, in conversation with his confidants, for the failure of their undercover agencies to prevent the large-scale terrorist attack launched on the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi on Sept. 21, DEBKA file reports. He said he had counted on them for a heads-up to thwart an attack, instead of which both the Americans and Israelis were as much in the dark as his own security agencies.
After October 2011, when Kenyan forces entered Somalia to back the government’s war on the Al Shabaab insurgency, Israeli and American intelligence operatives were given broad license to operate in Kenya’s main cities and shield the country against Al Shabaab and Al Qaeda terrorist attacks.
Kenyatta was particularly bitter over the way US officials Wednesday, Sept. 25, poured public scorn on Kenyan police and military operations against the terrorists holding the mall. They said they were “mindful that Kenya… has become a precarious buffer zone between the US and Islamist militants.” The shopping mall siege was seen as “a direct threat” to America’s national security, said those US officials.
The Kenyan president takes the reverse view: He considers the US and Israel failed in their responsibility for setting up a buffer zone for protecting his own country’s national security.
In this regard, Al Shabaab Wednesday, Sept. 25, issued a “message to Westerners” to prepare for a “long war” unless foreign troops pulled out of Somalia.
US intelligence sources rebut Kenyatta’s charges. They say they undertook to train Kenyan forces up to a certain level, but then responsibility for warding off attacks devolved on the local authorities.
They had no answers for questions about another US intelligence failure to pick up word of yet another Al Qaeda attack on the way in Africa, just a year after US Ambassador Chris Stevens and four of his staff, all special US agents, were caught unready and murdered in the Libyan town of Benghazi.
After that disaster and, more recently, the Algerian gas field hostage siege targeting Western staff of Jan. 16, 2013, the US has beefed up its military and intelligence presence in Africa and overhauled the US Africa Command-AFRICOM.
Israeli security officials have refused to comment on their involvement in Kenya before, during or after the shopping mall attack, preferring to focus on rapidly rebuilding a strong security envelope in Nairobi.
In private conversation, Israeli police and intelligence sources admit they fell down badly in Kenya, their failure all the more galling in view of Al Qaeda having targeted a center which houses many Israel-owned and managed businesses.
Their most urgent task now is to find out how terrorist spies were able to conduct repeated surveillance excursions in the Westgate mall – and even smuggle in large stocks of ammunition for a long siege – undetected by Israeli security agents and without them sounding the alarm.
Kenya President Uhuru Kenyatta said 39 people were killed and 60 injured in the terrorist attack on a Nairobi shopping mall Saturday, Sept. 21. In an address to the nation, he said the operation to “neutralize” the attackers, who were holding hostages, continues and the entire country was on terror alert. Kenyatta appealed for blood donors to come forward to help save the injured in hospitals.
The attack claimed later by the Somali, Al Qaeda-linked Somali Al-Shabaab began when a large group of gunmen sprayed the crowds with gunfire and grenades and was, engaged by police forces in fierce combat. The fate of a number of Israelis, some of whom owned businesses in the mall, is still being checked, although three were reportedly rescued. A Kenyan minister reported that Israeli Mossad agents were co-opted to the investigation. The fate of a number of hostages taken is unknown. The US State Department reported that Americans were among the injured.
Claiming the attack, Al Shabaab said they had repeatedly warned Kenya to pull its troops out of Somalia, where since last year they have been helping the Mogadishu government recover the country from the al Qaeda-linked insurgent group. The Kenyan presidency reported that the single gunman who was detained in the assault died in custody from bullet wounds.
debkafile reported earlier:
A large number of these terrorists rode into the attack on motorcycles, carrying large quantities of ammo. As terrified people rushed out, many holding children, the gunmen seized hostages and barricaded themselves inside the building. Heavy military and police forces are surrounding the mall. Witnesses who escaped reported that the terrorists, masked and clad in black clothing had singled out white people and foreigners and shouted to fellow Muslims to escape.
The exclusive Westgate centre is frequented by wealthy Kenyans and expatriates from in the country and outside. Police have urged residents to stay away from the area.
debkafile: The terrorists’ modus operandi points to al Qaeda gang or an affiliate which reached Nairobi from neighboring Somalia or the sea. Or else they are members of the Islamist al-Shabaab terrorist movement of Somalia, which is linked to al Qaeda. This violent group has vowed revenge against Kenya for its military support of the Mogadishu government.
In the past year, Kenyan and Somali troops captured large areas of southern and central Somalia from Al Shabaab insurgents. In a ground, air and naval assault, they ousted Al Shabaab from the key Somali port town of Kismayo, their last major urban stronghold.
Al Qaeda’s attack on the Westgate shopping mall was minutely prepared in two years of intelligence-gathering, detailed planning and multinational recruitment spreading over four continents – North America, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. This complex, sophisticated and labor-intensive terrorist operation was an eye-opener, showing how far Al Qaeda had upgraded its capabilities since Sept. 11, 2001. Yet no Western counterterrorism agency saw it coming. The DEBKA Weekly issue out next Friday exposes in detail and analyses the shocking scope of the Nairobi attack.
Kenya’s cabinet secretary reported Wednesday that US, Israeli, British, Canadian and German experts are assisting in the forensic investigation in the ravaged Westglade shopping mall collecting ballistic, DNA, fingerprint and other data. He said this information was vital to determine the identities and nationalities of the dead terrorists and also of their victims. The number of dead hostages and missing people has still not been established. Results of the probe will take not less than seven days. He said that five attackers were killed and 10 taken into custody, but could not specify their total number.
