First, no pictures, especially with IDs, should be distributed.
Second, better surveillance by ground or drone with snipers positioned 24/7.
Some of Ilhan Omars people did something
No, not the Americans
We had a chance to wipe al_Shabab back when it began as a rag-tag outfit of extremists bent on utilizing terrorism to obtain their objectives, etc. We should have wiped them then.
The Kenya-Somalia border is the weak link and is poorly guarded and patrolled.
Very easy for attackers from Somalia to infiltrate the country without detection and rapid response.
The situation is tailor-made for al-Shabab to attack targets throughout Kenya with virtual impunity.
One unlikely to change significantly in the foreseeable future.
Was OCommie and Jarrett directing the attack remotely?
You know she's up to her neck in something anti-American somewhere. She lives with the Obama's.
(What's that about?)
Obamas homeland. Nice.
There was a post on twitter in arabic yesterday telling terrorists to stay away from US bases on Sunday..leading people to think there would be attacks.
Obama’s homeys at work.

Al Shabab operates in Kenya in the context of tribal war between the Muslim tribes and the rest of Kenya.
Once Al Shabab awakens the wrath of the Kikuyu and those who hold the legacy of Jomo Kenyatta, Al Shabab followers will be skewered and roasted like pigs in public.

The shared government between Muslims and Christians in Kenya will not be able to stop it.
