Kenyans have mostly been left in the dark over what really happened and has been happening at Westgate. The media self-censored what it was putting out dramatically downplaying just how bloody the Westgate attack really was. Kenyans in social media trying to piece together clues were discouraged. We were all told to shut up and wait for official word.
when that official word came out it was always long on rhetoric and
short on facts. And even the little information coming out was
contradictory. Various government officials from the same government
were saying very different things.
There are many who strongly
believe that what you do not know will NOT harm you. This is certainly
NOT true in the dangerous world we live in today where information is
what will always protect you. For instance knowing your HIV status will

dangerously and assuming that all is well.
The truth of the
matter is that the country has just gone through one of the most deadly

organization (including ordering one of them to be be-headed) in a
desperate effort to consolidate his position and power.

Al Shababa analysts have often said that the man has hardly ever been

hearing a lot about in the next few months as the Westgate attack has
moved him right to the top of the list of the most wanted terrorists in
the world.His detailed and spine chilling bio is in my special report Horror at Westgate.
He seems to have put together a highly skilled international group of
terrorists for the Westgate operation and that is one of the reasons why
it went like clock-work. The ruthless nature of the attackers including
the fact that they did not hesitate to kill children is another
signature with Godane written all over it.
Meanwhile you need to read my special report Horror at Westgate
which reveals great details on Godane and why he was in such a hurry to
execute the bloody attack on Westgate so soon after a bloody internal
coup within al-Shabab which only happened in June this year. It also
explains the close links he has promoted with AL-Quaeda.
