Somali gov't: 1998 US Embassy blasts suspect dead


news.yahoo.com

NAIROBI, Kenya – The al-Qaida operative behind the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania has been killed, a Somali official said Saturday.

Somali officials have determined that a man killed by security forces on Tuesday was Fazul Abdullah Mohammed, said a spokesman for Somalia's minister of information, Abdifatah Abdinur.

"We've compared the pictures of the body to his old pictures," he said. "They are the same. It is confirmed. He is the man and he is dead. The man who died is Fazul Abdullah."

A U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss intelligence matters, said: "There's strong reason to believe he's dead. He was killed at a police checkpoint in Mogadishu."

Abdinur said the government is planning to issue a statement confirming Mohamed's death.

Mohamed had a $5 million bounty on his head for allegedly planning the Aug. 7, 1998, embassy bombings. The blasts killed 224 people in Nairobi, Kenya and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania combined. Most of the dead were Kenyans. Twelve Americans also died.

Members of Somalia's most dangerous militant group, al-Shabab, have pledged allegiance to al-Qaida. Al-Shabab's members include veterans of the Iraq and Pakistan conflicts.


Justice served? Or should he had been caught alive and put on trial? Notice that it seems that all these leaders are being caught and killed in short span of time? Could Al Zawahiri be next? Could it be that the CIA is shutting down its Al Qaida operations by betraying the terrorists?

I think Obama is gearing up for reelection and is cleaning house so to speak so as to look good in regards to security and making progress. The CIA had it's hit list but IMO politics decides when and where the hammer comes down.

In regards to the bombings and his death. You know what they say about payback...

This is significant and interesting but I don’t think there is any grand conspiracy element to it. From what I have read he was killed at a police checkpoint so I have to disagree with the OP’s commentary. Sounds to me like this was the work of the Somali’s and had very little to do with the Americans.

This is more than a bit interesting -

Funny an article back from 2007 that says he was killed
along with three other leaders of al-Quaida.




Both officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss intelligence matters. Abdirizak Hassan, chief of staff for President Abdullahi Yusuf, said suspected al-Qaida cell leader Fazul Abdullah Mohammed and three leaders of the fleeing Islamic Courts Union government had been killed. The Pentagon confirmed Tuesday that an Air Force AC-130 gunship fired Sunday at what U.S. officials called a terrorist hideout in a forested area near the southern border with Kenya, after "credible intelligence" indicated that senior al-Qaida leaders were there.

From 2007 then the "official comments"


United States officials immediately distanced themselves from the Somali claim, saying that they were not even sure Mr. Fazul was among the terrorism suspects hiding in southern Somalia with Islamist fighters. They did say then that Abu Taha al-Sudani, a top aide to Mr. Fazul, and Aden Hashi Ayrow, a Somali terrorism suspect, might have been killed.query.nytimes.com...


So, whats going on? Well in any case, since "its official" and a U.S. official says its "official" then
it must be official, Fuzul is dead.

Do all of these al-Quaida leaders die many deaths?

Nothing is as it seems in the world of global espionage. In a world of propaganda, lies, double crosses, moles, double agents; anyone that believes any news release from anyone affiliated with a covert agency, foreign or domestic, is an unmitigated fool.

Apparently.

This is exactly like something straight out of Orwell's 1984.


Something else to watch out for out of that book. One week rations for chocolate/razors/whatever will be, say, 5 units a week. The next week they will triumphantly announce an "increase" in rations to 2 units per week.


Is this the extreme to which gullibility in this country is heading? This guy was reported dead in 2007, well Osama was reported dead well before that!

I think your quotes and links answer your own question, don't they?

Somalia thought he was dead in 2007, US denies it has any knowledge he was there and distances themselves from claim, meaning that there would be a good chance he wasn't in fact killed in 2007 (if they are to be believed), answering your query about them dying "multiple deaths"

Agreed. Some say he was killed in 2007 then all the sudden he was alive.
