Posted on 09/22/2013 8:11:46 AM PDT by Innovative
A member of the House Homeland Security Committee says the al-Qaida affiliated group behind the deadly attack on an upscale shopping mall in Kenya recruited up to 50 people from Somali American communities in the U.S.

Just remember that the US was warned several times by Russia about the Boston bombers, but they were too busy to follow up...
Well, imagine that. A lot of good all that domestic spying has done then.
Get them out of my country. Their culture is one of filth, mutilation and death!
Maybe they should be more concerned with al shabab instead of shish ka bob. Or the new al queda group al baclava.
This is old news, but it’s good that King is reminding people
Gee, and I thought all these people were enriching our society. Silly me.
There was a picture of a young, non-Arabic, hijab-wearing white woman with an English name (I don’t know whether she is a British or American convert) who is thought to be the woman reported as participating in the Kenya attack.
Not surprised at all , and one day they will return and lead the fight in this country.
Yeah, a good respite from his gun control agenda.
Saw that ... ready to profile yet, everyone?
Sorry FRiend .... they are already here.
Pete King wants to worry about one group of islamderthal terrorists while supporting another in Syria.
That is exactly why they were recruited. They know the language, they know the lay of the land, they are the insiders crucial to an attack.
They are not “Minnesota Nice?”/sarc.
Does King support the “rebels” in Syria?
What’s his agenda in Syria?
..hey KING...do something useful, investigate why a Saudi national was shipped out of the country within days after the Boston bombing....the one who had Chewie stop in and visit while in the hospital....yeah that one King.
And “Minnesota fairness” demands they be hired in retail stores and restaurants. A few years back, I checked into the Holiday Inn at Burnsville and had to deal with a nasty-faced middle eastern woman who spoke a bit of English.
He supported immediate strike on Syria following the sarin attack .... as did I. He’s been reluctant to send support to the rebels
“Anything King says, I would have to verify with at least 2 sources and then I would still be skeptical.”
Only two sources. King is more dangerous than Pelosi/Reid, Schumer, Obozo and other rat liars. We know that they lie, and many of us don’t realize that King is a liar for the left.
Not sure, I don’t follow his that closely except on the gun issues.
So he supported bombing the rebels’ opponents - ie the gov’t — in syria. Thought so.
Where does King stand on the IRA?
THANK YOU BILL CLINTON!!!
don’t know, but you can try to Google it.
This is the same Rep King who would give Islamic Terrorists Illegal Alien Amnesty...Hypocrite
The enemy is inside the wire and I include the White House
What a great time to have a Muslim heading the CIA.
Is this the same peter king who voted this week to continue funding obamugabe’s death panels?
Sounds like Do-wop:
Shabab shabab....ma baby... ooh ooh ooooh...
Gathering info is one thing. Distilling it is another.
The State Department geniuses who thought it was a good idea to import tens of thousands of Somalis should be in jail. Seriously.
In other words, they are 75% political group and 25% religion.
I guarantee they have no trouble at all "distilling" information on domestic political opponents such as the TP.
"Distilling" = giving a isht. The only thing this regime cares about is their political enemies. They could not care less about terrorists.
It's doing exactly as it was intended: It is being used to carefully monitor and destroy American citizens who are to the right-of-center, politically.
Peter King was once okay on amnesty. He is on a list of 24 GOP Congressman who support amnesty from one of the Amnesty websites.
I guess the Dream Act portion of amnesty will probably cost half a trillion or a trillion. None of them have jobs.
The farm worker is costing us so how much are the dreamers who want to party with college loans going to cost?
At 38 Seconds in the short video on you tube,
I would assume that FBI and local law enforcement are looking at Somalia communities to make sure there is no follow up attempt here in the US.
This is the first two minutes of the video below.

Peter King interviewed and then the panel discussion.
‘This Week’ Panel: The Terror Threat
In January 2013, Twitter suspended Al-Shabaab’s English account. This was apparently in response to the account having issued death threats against Frenchman “Denis Allex” and subsequently posted photos of his corpse after the botched Bulo Marer hostage rescue attempt, as well as tweeting threats to kill Kenyan hostages. Al-Shabaab later opened a new Twitter account on February 4, 2013. Twitter closed the account again on September 6, 2013 for unspecified reasons. A few days earlier, on September 3, the insurgent group had used the service to claim responsibility for an unsuccessful ambush attempt against a convoy carrying Somalian President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud. The militants also tweeted after the attack that the outfit had no other active Twitter feeds in English, and cautioned users against “parody accounts”. The insurgent group also messaged that “next time, you won’t be as lucky,” in apparent violation of Twitter’s user policies against issuing threats of violence and using the service for illicit purposes or activities. However, Al-Shabaab’s Arabic account remained open. The group later relaunched its English Twitter account on September 11.

Sen. Rand Paul is hammering his fellow senators for keeping billions in financial aid flowing to Egypt’s military — even as Cairo’s security forces massacre anti-government activists.

Rand Pauls immigration speech

...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.
Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.
Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.
Lets start that conversation by acknowledging we arent going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.
If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...
This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.
Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.
[but hes not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]
