Mall of America Heightens Security After Al-Shabab Video - Fox News, ABC Hype Bogus "Terror" Threat

ABC, Fox & Friends screech new "terror" warnings following ludicrous Al-Shamob "threat;" blowback from sales drop in malls will boomerang on MSM frauds, coming back to bite them in the ass as corporate masters take massive hit in pocketbooks and what a coincidence, coming right on the heels of budget cuts to DHS

One of the largest malls in the United States has heightened security after a video claiming to be posted online by a Somali militant group affiliated with al Qaeda called for attacks against the mall.


"Comin' to getcha, 'Mericuns… Ize' gwine see
you at de Mall!"
The Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota, issued a statement Saturday, saying it had increased security in light of the video purportedly from al-Shabab, which took credit for the deadly attack at a Kenyan mall that killed at least 67 civilians in 2013.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson called the video the "new phase we’ve evolved in terms of the global terrorist threat and what we need to do in terms of counter-terrorism.."





"Groups like ISIL [ISIS], al-Shabab, AQAP (al Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula) are now publicly calling for attacks either through the internet, through videos, through publications, which means that we need to respond militarily but we also have to have a whole government approach through law enforcement, homeland security and frankly countering violent extremism efforts here in the homeland in communities," Johnson said on ABC's "This Week." "We’re in a new phase now and I’m afraid that this most recent video release reflects that."

Matt Olsen, former director of the National Counterterrorism Center and current ABC News consultant, said despite al-Shabab not having a known ability to carry out such an attack in the U.S., the threat must still be considered.

"Over the past few years, al-Shabab has been degraded overall, but it is still active in Somalia and parts of East Africa," said Olsen. "al-Shabab has no known operational capacity in the U.S., and we haven't seen the group develop the ability to carry out a complex attack here. But this type of threat can't be discounted, and the FBI and local police departments will have to take appropriate steps in response."

The Department of Homeland Security and FBI issued a joint statement Sunday, saying the agencies were aware of the "reported call from al-Shabab for 'Westgate style' attacks against shopping centers around the world, to include in the United States."


"In recent months, the FBI and DHS have worked closely with our state and local public safety counterparts and members of the private sector, to include mall owners and operators, to prevent and mitigate these types of threats," the statement continued.


And this from Fox News Megyn Kelly:

Al-Qaeda-Linked Terrorist Group Releases Chilling Video Threatening the Mall of America

An al-Qaeda-linked terrorist group has released a video threatening attacks on the Mall of America, along with other malls in Canada and the United Kingdom.


"Hey it be cool… we jus goin' do a little rapin' on white Christian girls, blowin' shit up know what I'm sayin', den a little shoppin'…"

As reported by ABC, Department ofHomeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said “We’re in a new phase now and I’m afraid that this most recent video release reflects that.”


"We have to be on the lookout for terrorists from countries
like Somalia and ASIA…" - Steve Doocy
U.S. officials have long been concerned with the possibility of terrorist attacks on U.S. malls and other public venues. 

Following the attack on the Kenyan mall, those concerns were heightened. 



Now, there is a specific threat where many Americans spend their time shopping and enjoying themselves.


"OMG they're going to be here TOMORROW!"
But the motive for such a threat is still unclear – beyond an Islamist extremist group simply seeking to strike terror into the heart of its global enemy. 

Such threats may be used to provoke the enemy to spend more resources on security, and conversely, governments may indeed use terror threats to justify security measures that the public would otherwise not find acceptable.


Still, if bloodthirsty terrorist groups like al-Shabaab feel threatened enough to launch attacks on U.S. soil, that is also an indication that either they are feeling pressured by American counter-terrorism policy, or alternatively, sense an opportunity to make a cultural or political statement that can win it financial or popular support against competitors – like ISIS, for example.




One thing is clear: If a terror group like al-Shabaab conducted a terrorist attack on a mall in America, it would find itself in a position of all-out war against the United States – given it would likely be under another president.
