FOX NEWS...June 6, 2010 - Federal authorities on Sunday unsealed charges against two New Jersey men arrested the night before as they allegedly tried to join an Al Qaeda-linked group, Al-Shabbab and Omar Hammami, in war-torn Somalia and kill Americans there.
The men were inspired at least in part by Omar Hammami, the Alabama-born face of the Somalia-based terrorist group Al-Shabaab, and Anwar al-Awlaki, the New Mexico-born cleric now hiding in Yemen who has been linked to the Fort Hood shootings, the Christmas Day bombing attempt and the failed Times Square car bomb plot, according to federal prosecutors.

Monday, January 26, 2009, The Somalia Al-Shabaab (and Al-Qaeda linked) terrorist website http://www.kataaib.net/ is shut down, the Domain Pending Cancellation Per a US Government Order on Jan 23rd. 2009.

20-year-old Mohamed Mahmood Alessa of North Bergen, N.J., and 24-year-old Carlos Eduardo Almonte of Elmwood Park, N.J., have been charged with conspiring to kill or injure persons outside the United States.
They were taken into custody late Saturday night at JFK International Airport, as they attempted to board separate flights to Egypt on their way to Somalia, where the group al-Shabaab is battling the nation’s fledgling transitional government.
After the FBI received a tip in October 2006, an undercover officer with the New York Police Department’s Intelligence Division recorded numerous meetings and conversations with Alessa and Almonte about their violent plans, according to court documents.
They repeatedly watched and shared recordings promoting violent jihad, including lectures by al-Awlaki and online videos featuring Omar Hammami, his photo above now and when he was a child, who is now known as "Abu Mansour al-Amriki," prosecutors allege.
In late November 2009, Alessa was recorded as saying that if he and Almonte can’t kill targets overseas, then they’ll "start doing killing here" in the United States, according to court documents. He later said he would return to the "crap hole" of the United States if "the leader ordered me to come back here and do something," court documents allege.
Speaking of U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, who allegedly killed 13 people at Fort Hood, Tex., last year, Alessa also discussed doing "twice what he did," according to court documents. More recently, on April 25, Almonte allegedly said he was happy to hear rumors that Americans would soon be arriving in Somalia to help fight al-Shabaab. Almonte said killing more than Africans would be particularly gratifying, according to prosecutors.
While law enforcement officials have recently said there is no intelligence to suggest al-Shabaab is actively plotting attacks inside the United States, New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said such a strike was "a possibility in this case."
For more than a year, the FBI has been investigating how dozens of Americans from across the country were recruited to train and fight alongside al-Shabaab, which has pledged its allegiance to Usama bin Laden, hey FBI take a look at any of the Jihad Website hosted in the USA.
The New York Police Department has also "long been concerned" about Americans being radicalized inside the country, Kelly said. About a year ago, an NYPD intelligence officer met with experts on the ground in East Africa, trying to learn more about how al-Shabaab operates and recruits foreigners, according to one source, take a look at any of the Jihad Website hosted in the USA.
In October 2008, 27-year-old college student Shirwa Ahmed of Minneapolis became "the first known American suicide bomber" when he blew himself up in Somalia, killing dozens, according to the FBI, and in 2006 fighting with al-Shabaab intensified after Western-backed Ethiopian forces invaded the country, more form this source..........
