Hmmm. I wonder if they're monitoring the Somali refugees that were recently relocated to Vermont and Maine.

Warsame's wife, Fartun Farah

Just how does this man address his wife?

"Hey, what are you doing, Fart'n?"

FYI...web search shows Mohammed Warsame is a very common name, even more so alternative spellings of the first one used.

Officiallly it's estimated that 20,000 Somalis live in Minneapolis. Parts of Franklin Avenue near the U of M and Cedar Riverside look like an East African marketplace. Kind of feel sorry for the womenfolk. A sheet can't be very warm in 10 degree weather while the men walk around in the latest Tommy Hilfiger leather bomber jackets and high top Nikes.

Beneath the said sheet you will also find 100% of the females have been genitally mutilated.

Nice folks for neighbours.

Nothing really. Just that we should keep checking all grandmothers at the airports for bombs.

My sentiments exactly! Especially the really short, fragile-looking, decrepit grandmothers carrying rosary beads. If ANYone's gonna hijack a DC-10, it's one of them!

I don't think you can draw any conclusions from the data. Far to early. Need to study it more.

There are Somali's everywhere in MN. We have the second largest population of Somalis behind NYC.

I am sure the FBI has been monitoring the community.
