About two weeks ago Somali-based terror group al Shabaab released a video where they specifically pointed to certain targets in the West for possible terror attacks.
The big question in the US now is whether the group is capable of carrying out attacks so far from Somalia. Interestingly although the State Department designated the group as a foreign terrorist organization as far back as in March 2008, there are Americans who are hearing the al Qaeda linked name for the first time. One commentator on a CNN blog even boldly stated that he thought it was the name of a rap music group. This kind of ignorance can be dangerous because when a group is designated a foreign terrorist organization, according to the US law, it becomes illegal for a person in the United States to knowingly provide that group with money, communications equipment, weapons or explosives or to even join it.
Probably the most worrying issue in all this is the fact that al Shabaab has been very actively recruiting Americans for a number of years now. Which means that an attack on US soil may not be as difficult to execute as some analysts may want to think.
