American on FBI Most Wanted for Aiding al Shabaab Shot by ..... al Shabaab

Omar Hammami tweeted yesterday that he'd been shot by a "Shabaab assassin" in the neck, but that the wound didn't seem mortal to him and he was self treating it.

Vinnie called him out on it saying we wouldn't believe it unless he gave us photographic evidence.

In reply, he posted a series of images, including this one:


So, a guy on the FBI's Top 10 Most Wanted Terrorist list was just shot by the terrorists who he went to Somalia to help. Ironic.

But the plot thickens.

After the assassination attempt Hammami then claimed that Shabaab had teamed up with the Somali government and have surrounded the village where he's holed up. A second source tweeting from Mogidishu also claims that word is that one of Shabaab's factions has Hammami and five others considered disloyal to the terror group surrounded. For his part, Hammami says that the locals back him and his rag tag group of non-Somalis.

His last tweet was that:

they are sending forces from multiple directions. we are few but we might get back up. abu zubayr has gone mad. he's starting a civil war.
So, it's on in Somalia. Red on red.

It seems that our efforts to get Omar to come home and face the music have failed. And as we've been telling him for months, this isn't going to end well.

At least not for him. But for the rest of us? Pass the popcorn.

1 Are we sure that isn't a shaving place incident?

2 You'd have to start with the assumption that Omar shaves. Or bathes.

3 Laura, it's haram to shave. That's for men and women.

5 Lousy shots. No wonder they rip off as many rounds as they are carrying.
Moslimes doing what they do best. killing other moslimes.

If you talk enough you'll probably get put in solitary.

7 That's what happens when sharks smell blood in the water. They attack and eat their own. No great loss here.

10 Maybe he was hit by a piece of shrapnel, or a ricochet, but had he been shot in the throat, with the kind of medical care they have in Somalia, he would be dead.

That wound, to me, looks more like shrapnel then a bullet. I am not an expert, could be wrong. Just saying. Here's hoping for an antibiotic resistant infection.

11 @Mark,


That mental imagery will stay with me for way too long. That's why God gave me laughter though, I suppose.
