MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (July 24) - Abayte Ahmed and her husband learned of their son's death in the most heinous fashion. A family acquaintance called and told them to click on an Internet site. There on the screen were photographs of their 20-year-old son -- the boy with the movie-star looks -- shot through the head thousands of miles away in Somalia.

Screw that dumb-ass kid and his parents for not raising him better.
2nd line just for giggles....
"His parents said they believe their son was brainwashed and recruited to fight in the civil war between Somalia's unstable transitional government and Al-Shabaab."
Do not be so quick to apologize Heracat, ..... once again, this boy was recruited by a terrorist group....... he was a TERRORIST. He went over there to take lives, .... he deserved to be killed, he knew what he was getting into.
The 2006 Justice Department document, which exposes 35 terrorist training compounds in the U.S., was marked “Dissemination Restricted to Law Enforcement.” All the copies of Gilani’s terrorist training video, “Soldiers of Allah,” had been confiscated and sealed.
One of the missing youth, Shirwa Ahmed, 27, blew up himself and 29 others last fall in Somalia in what is believed to be the first suicide bombing carried out by a naturalized U.S. citizen. Ahmed had traveled from Minneapolis. The attack raised red flags throughout the U.S. intelligence community and sparked an investigation by the FBI.
Bihi and community leader Omar Jamal said they hold one place at least loosely responsible: the Abubakar as-Saddique Islamic Center, the largest mosque in Minneapolis.
"All these kids missing, they all have one thing in common: They all participated in youth programs in that mosque," said Jamal.
Jamal and Bihi said leaders of the mosque, at the very least, allowed people to come around their facility and recruit young men to fight in Somalia -- a charge the head imam denies. CNN was not allowed inside the mosque, but was granted an interview with the imam at a different location.
