Somalis Say Militant 'Commander' Killed In Street Battle Had US Papers
An American member of an al Qaeda-connected terror group has been killed in fighting in Somalia, according to intelligence and government officials there. The fighter, a Somali-American man known as Dahir Gurey Sheikh Ali Guled, was found dead in Mogadishu after a street battle between the militant group, Al Shabab, and pro-government forces.
A US official told ABC News that Gurey was believed to be an American citizen who arrived in Somalia earlier this year, but cautioned that the US government has not independently confirmed Mr. Gurey's death or nationality. Somali officials said the man had documents on him that indicated he was American.

I am pleased he is dead and we don’t have to waste millions on a trial that would be sabotaged by Obama Administration.

Good riddance to bad rubbish.At least he won’t be causing any trouble now that he’s dead.
I just hope that report is true.
