Al-Shabaab Conduct Mass Student Slaughter In Kenya – Christians Separated From Hostages, 147 Killed…

It should be noted Al-Shabaab -which is also known as AQNA (al-Qaeda in North Africa)- has previously been conclusively identified as maintaining training bases in Mexico (Report from 2011).  It is the same group responsible for the Kenya Mall attacks and has threatened the Mall of America. 

GARISSA, Kenya — Al-Shabaab gunmen rampaged through a university in northeastern Kenya at dawn Thursday, killing 147 people in the group’s deadliest attack in the East African country. Four militants were slain by security forces to end the siege just after dusk.

The masked attackers armed with AK-47s singled out non-Muslim students at Garissa University College and then gunned them down without mercy, survivors said. Others ran for their lives with bullets whistling through the air.

The gunmen had strapped themselves with explosives, Interior Minister Joseph Nkaissery said. When Kenyan officers shot at the four, the attackers exploded “like bombs” and shrapnel from the explosions injured officers, he said.

Al-Shabaab spokesman Ali Mohamud Rage said fighters from the Somalia-based extremist group were responsible for the bloodshed. The al Qaeda-linked group has been blamed for a series of attacks in Kenya, including the siege at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi in 2013 that killed 67 people, as well as other violence in the north.

CBS News’ Debora Patta reports that students at Garissa college received letters about a week ago warning them of a possible attack, but it seemed no preventative measures were taken by security services. (read more)

    Although I’m not a Christian myself, I’ll say this: If it ever comes to that, if a group makes some effort to terrorize or even kill Christians for BEING Christian, I’ll stand shoulder to shoulder with you against the scum.

    It is clear to me that these victims were just “random” and that the killers are ordinary criminals and not Islamic extremists. Nothing to see, keep moving on…hey, you should concentrate on the wonderful “understanding” the OB administration struck with the Iranians. As SecState Kerry said, the world is much safer today than at anytime in recent history. It is only 147 random deaths, it workplace violence at a university, nothing more than that. Obviously, the way to resolve this violence is more gun control in Kenya. Of course gun control only applies to ordinary citizens, the terrorist can keep their weapons. It is very hard for me to say this, but I think Carter was not the worst modern US president…….

      I think Carter’s biggest problem was that he’s a decent human being. And I hate to say this, but I don’t actually think it’s POSSIBLE to be a good person and be the president. Well… at least not and accomplish not only the good, but the BAD that comes with that office. (And no, I’m not talking about the clearly unconstitutional garbage Obama and others have engaged in.)

        Carter … a decent human being? So why was he meeting with Hamas last year? Hmmmm?

        Carter was a Socialist & was actually the founding father & engineer of our 2008 Housing Market / Economic collapse. He was followed closely by Bill Clinton who doubled down on lowering the qualifications for home mortgage loans.

        If you think Carter was a good guy then you didn’t live through his Socialist administration of raising income taxes up to 70% on those people who worked hard & became successful (redistribution).

        His 4 years were so bad that even the Democrats voted against him.

    Mexico hell – Al-Shabaab isn’t mentioned being in the Tri-Border Area so I’ll just say it’s ALLEGED they are there. Mexican officials have been having living with a lot of Mosles there for over 100 years now. – they had a rather extensive overwatch program after 911. If the situation hasn’t changed the largest concentrations are in the areas around Mexico City but there are other areas of interest scattered all over.
    Al Shabaab was of concern as recruiting in the US and using cartels to smuggle them across the Us borders – something else that uncomfortable points towards the handshake relationship between the TBA drug kingpins and the Mexican cartels. Hey, just sayin’ here. I would go as far as to unofficially say that the Al Shabaab folks are heavily here, just look at how many of the various cartel folks are set up in major US cities and operating in far-flung places such as…ohhhhh, let;s say…..Chicago?
    They have no need to announce their presence here and I wonder just how much of that’s the same kind of ‘watchful waiting’ a doctor does when you have some particularly icky condition s/he can’t quickly and easily diagnose? the doc’s hoping it will just go away on its own as are the various Federal LEA. Too bad teh POtuS and his krewe won’t be around that much longer – they could just have Al Shabaab (hereinafter referred to under their Mexican nomme de guerre of ‘El Shabby’) declared a political party (headed by Al Shaarptoon?) and they’d be legit.

      Obama is greasing the skids for all these terrorists groups and their ilk to establish themselves so they can do all their dirty work after he has left office. He said one time that “as long as he’s in charge we don’t have to worry about attacks in the United States.” I actually believe him. That’s basically the only thing I’ve heard him say that I believe. If a major Pearl Harbor event occurs at the end of his presidency when it would be to late to hold him accountable is a possibility also. It’s coming though and Obama will be far far away from it.

        “As long as he’s in charge…” that can be taken a number of ways from ‘You bet I’ll be ahelpin’ ’em get office space” to “We”l I ain’t been in charge in six years so you’re in deep hummus.” They were here before Bush I, and the POTUSs post-Bush I haven’t really managed to stem the flow so there are many of us just waiting for the ‘when’ and not the ‘if’. From the impressive open work he’s done organizing native innercity terrorists one can’t help but wonder what may have gone on with those he chose to stand with when the political winds shifted…
