'White man' training Al Qaida terrorists in wilderness camp

Al Qaida linked Islamist terrorists have set up a training camp in southern Somalia, near the Kenya border, according to eyewitness reports in the local press.
The Nairobi East African Standard newspaper reported last week that Kenyan border guards are aware of the camp, which is a 20-minute boat ride from the underwater park at Kiunga, a border region.

The Islamists at the camp are being trained with the help of a "white man sporting a thick moustache and believed to be of Eastern European extraction, presumably Yugoslavia," the newspaper reported.

The camp at Ras Kiamboni is being used to recruit and train Islamist extremists linked to the Al Ittiyad, a Somalia based group linked to Al Qaida.

According to the report, Al Ittiyad terrorists transit the Kenyan border with arms and equipment. The camp is said to employ turban-wearing sentries armed with AK-47 rifles.

The terrorists are told that they would be sent to fight alongside Islamists in Chechnya. The fighters are part of the global "jihadist" or holy warrior movement that includes Al Qaida.

The accented trainer has been identified only as "David."

The report said fighters who were killed in friendly fire accidents are buried in the camp.

The facility is hidden in a thicket in the wilderness area of Somalia and is defended by a large caliber gun mounted on the coast targeted against approaching ships or boats.

An official in the Kenyan counterterrorist agency said the camp is supported by a Garissa, Kenya businessman and a series of lodges in the Majengo area of Mombassa.

Kenya agents visited the camp in May, June and July and obtained valuable details about its operations in an area almost 45 square miles in size.

The camp is inhabited by families of the jihadists and includes local police and courts.

The terrorists also have cells in Kenya and are supported by the Kenyan businessman. "He is the key financier of the group. Funds to bankroll the suspect activities of the outfit are channeled to the businessman from different banks in Kuwait," the official was quoted as saying.

Kind of stupid article.  Is he assuming that it is unusual for "white men" to be:

a) Moslems

b) Terrorists

Chechen's have been very active abroad.  I've seen plenty of characters in the Balkans who would fit both those profiles.  Seems like a non-issue to me.

Very well could be chechens...

Seems that Africa is going to end up being the new front on this War on Terror down the road....  Too many  people are suffering , too many civil wars going on, starvation, AIDS, Drought. The people of Africa have nothing to look forward to so the situation might be exploited by Al Quaida for recruitment purposes.

Well, my names David and I've got military experience going back to 68. Hell, the money's there. It could be any Caucasian, with mil experience, from anywhere. There's people, named David, in TO with Soviet military exp that can't speak English. What the heck does a moustache prove. Pay the price, you'll find a vendor. The article proves nothing about anyone. Quit trying to find answers where there is none.
