A former Minneapolis high school student, now a terror suspect jailed in Somalia, admitted previous ties to the militant group Al-Shabab, but denied involvement with Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorists or the mass shootings that killed 14 people in San Bernardino, Calif., last week.
Mohamed Abdullahi Hassan, known by his jihadi moniker on social media as "Mujahid Miski," spoke by telephone with a reporter from Voice of America's Somali Service on Tuesday, one day after U.S. State Department officials revealed that Hassan turned himself in to Somali authorities Nov. 6. He remains in the custody of the country's intelligence agency in the capital, Mogadishu.
Hassan, 28, who attended Roosevelt High School, said he returned to Somalia to defend against Ethiopian intervention. Although he said he joined Al-Shabab, he said he left in 2013 "because of the oppression that they are doing on the people, the way they are killing people, and the imprisonment of innocent people and the torture without no evidence at all."

It bugs me so much he should be referred as “ex Minneapolis student.”
The word “Somali” would suffice just fine.
I’m good with “terrorist”.
If you don’t want to be deported — you should denounce Jihad and wahhabism on a video interview that is accessed by the public any time. The Wahhabis will never do that and will then be deported. Good Sunnis and all Shiites will then get to stay as long as they assimilate. Please listen . it is the Wahhabi sect Sunnis that are the killers. It is well known except by the idiots in the regime and apparently in the GOPe. Get them out of here before they blow up a Bowl game!! PLEASE!! NOW!!
No extradition treaty with Somalia.
They caught him. They can kill him. They can keep him.
We should NEVER allow this kind of FILTH back into this country, once they leave to fight with our enemies. That used to be the law.
