SNIPPET: "HOUSTON -- A Homeland Security Alert is asking Houston police and Harris County Sheriffs deputies to keep their eyes open for a potential terrorist.
The alert focuses on Mohamed Ali, a suspected member of the terrorist group Al Shabaab. It indicates he may be traveling to the U.S. through Mexico."
SNIPPET: "In 2007, former Houstonian Daniel Joseph Maldonado was brought back to Houston by the U.S Attorney in the Southern District after he was captured in Somalia reportedly training with terrorist groups.
He had initially been on the frontlines of Al Shabaab, but when they realized he was an American, they pulled him back because they had plans for him to come back to the U.S. and recruit female suicide bombers, said Neuhaus Schaan."
SNIPPET: "U.S. Homeland Security officials confirmed the Muhamed Ali alert, but declined to comment on it."
SNIPPET: "If authorities are right, Mohamed Ali is hardly alone and a terror network is following well-worn human smuggling routes into the Lone Star State.
There would be a reasonable chance to have him [Mohamed Ali] coming through Houston, Neuhaus Schaan said. They [Al Shabaab] have been pretty busy in Texas.

Shouldn’t be hard for him crossing border. Not much there to stop him.
That word “terror” is SO disturbing. Couldn’t we just say, “Mohammed alert?”

FBI accuses man of lying in terror case
Sudbury resident arrested on way to job overseas

Globe Staff / November 12, 2008
ARTICLE SNIPPET: Statements that Tarek Mehanna allegedly made to the FBI two years ago in the midst of a terrorism investigation came back to haunt him last weekend, when the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy graduate was arrested as he was about to board a Boston flight to start a new job overseas.
Mehanna, 26, who was living in a sprawling house in Sudbury with his parents, is charged with lying to the FBI in December 2006 when questioned about the whereabouts and activities of Daniel J. Maldonado, a former Methuen resident who was suspected of training at an Al Qaeda terrorist camp to overthrow the Somali government.

ok, not THE Muhammed Ali. It’s some other Muhamed Ali. The real one never recruited female suicide bombers to do his fighting for him.
Oh I like that one!!!

How dare you offend the followers of the Prophet by using his name.And usage of the word alert is far too stressful.We must call it a provisioal cause of upsetment appraisal.

“The alert focuses on Mohamed Ali”
Wow, that is an unusual Arab name.
Sure hope he doesn’t get racially profiled. That would be inhuman. /s/
They’re looking for Cassius Clay?
They aren't even allowed to question the terrorists already here. Houston is a sanctuary city.
He'll float over the border like a butterfly & sting like a bee.
looks like fight's on to me.
SNIPPET from the link in post no. 1:
"The route from Somalia to Texas is shorter than Americans would like to think. It goes through Mexico. Two weeks ago, a federal indictment was filed in San Antonio against a Somali citizen. It alleges Ahmed Muhammed Dhakane led a large-scale smuggling enterprise, moving east Africans into the U.S., including members of a terrorist group called AIAI."
