There were at least 6 Americans amongst the attackers who stormed Westgate last Saturday, according to a list of the attackers by nationality just published in the Kumekucha Raw notes. The total number of attackers were 15.
This new info has hardly surprised terror analysts because Al-Shabab has been getting a lot of recruits from the US over the last 6 years and more specifically from Minnesota, home of the largest Somali community in the United States. It is believed that well over 60 young American Somalis have left the US for Somalia to join the al Shabab over the last 6 years alone.
All are believed to have been from Minnesota. Minnesotas' Somali community, concentrated in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, includes people who fled the long civil war in their east African homeland and children born in the U.S. Many are now American citizens.
Al-Shabab's recruitment efforts in the United States began in 2007 when small groups began discussing returning home to fight Ethiopian troops who entered Somalia to prop up a weak U.N.-backed government and were seen by many Somalis as foreign invaders. The recruiters aimed their appeal at the young mens' patriotic and religious ideals.
The terror groups' recruiting technique is essentially a call to jihad, that this is a religious duty. Internet videos are a major tool for the group. Many feature scenes of men with covered faces firing automatic weapons, marching or practicing martial arts, as well as images of dead bodies and religious documents. Some show English-speaking suicide bombers reciting last wills.
The group often appeals to young men who have had trouble assimilating into American life, perhaps because they are unable to get a job, dropped out of school or got involved in gangs.
