Al-Shabaab Deemed a Threat to U.S. Homeland

By William Tucker

The House Committee on Homeland Security issued a majority report yesterday stating that the Somali guerilla group al-Shabaab presented a credible threat to the U.S. homeland. Justification for the claim stems from the finding that over 40 naturalized U.S. citizens had returned to their native Somalia to fight on behalf of al-Shabaab, three of which became suicide bombers.
