A provocative commentary by Frank J. Cilluffo and F. Jordan Evert of the Homeland Security Policy Institute at George Washington University --

Clad in army fatigues, holding an AK-47, and armed with a flawless command of American

English, Omar Hammami appears on YouTube to describe an anticipated Al Shabaab murder

of Ethiopian soldiers in Somalia. In another video, “Al Amriki” (“The American,” Hammami’s

nom de guerre), runs in slow motion with a group of jihadists in his wake. Jihadist rap plays

in the background. An indictment unsealed Thursday names Hammami as part of a massive FBI US-Somali terrorism case. The operation also includes the arrests and indictments of 14 individuals on charges of providing support to the Somali terrorist group Al Shabaab.ji
