U.S. was warned about Kenya mall attack 29 Sep 2013 U.S. intelligence received reports of a serious threat in Kenya before last week’s terrorist attack at a Nairobi mall that left 62 dead and more than 150 injured, NBC News reported. Officials said that NSA reviewed intelligence of a “credible” threat. [Right, the US either *let it happen* — or *made it happen* — to ‘justify’ illegal NSA spying and drone strikes in Africa to steal the oil.]
Kenyan Attack: Security Bosses to Be Quizzed 30 Sep 2013 Kenyan intelligence officials are to be questioned by the country’s MPs today about whether or not they had advance warning of the deadly Westgate shopping mall attack. Kenyans have become increasingly frustrated over the government’s unwillingness to share information about the attack. Almost no details have been released about what happened after the first hours of the siege. Interior minister Joseph Ole Lenku has declined to give any information about the suspected attackers, saying “we do not discuss intelligence matters in public”.
Westgate false flag unravels at breakneck speed: Kenyan authorities had been warned about threat to buildings ‘day before attacks’ —Intelligence agents were in Westgate a few hours before crowded shopping centre was struck by heavily armed terrorists 28 Sep 2013 Kenyan authorities had intelligence pointing to an attack in Nairobi a day before the Westgate mall attack. According to counter-terrorism documents, the government and military were warned that al-Shabaab was planning an attack on the capital where it would storm a building and hold hostages. There are also reports that Kenyan intelligence agents were at Westgate a few hours before the crowded shopping centre was struck by heavily armed terrorists last Saturday, in a four-day siege that left at least 67 people dead. “We cannot say that this attack comes as a surprise,” said Farah Maalim, former deputy speaker of the Kenyan National Assembly.
American security team inside Kenya massacre mall — rescued lawyer —Was an American security team inside Kenya massacre mall? Harvard graduate claims she was rescued by ‘Americans’ after she saw man sat next to her shot dead 25 Sep 2013 An American woman who was trapped inside the Nairobi mall as terrorists ran amok claims she was eventually rescued by an ‘American security team’. That is according to Bendita Malakia, the Harvard-trained lawyer who was caught up in the siege and hid along with 15 others in a store inside the mall for five hours before the armed men arrived to lead them to safety. While there has been no official confirmation of any direct American involvement in the stand-off between the heavily-armed militants from the Somalia-based al Shabaab and Kenyan Defence Forces, the statement from World Bank employee, Malakia, seems to suggest there was. As the attack carried on to its final conclusion, British MI6 agents were also reported to be providing assistance to their ‘Kenyan counterparts.’ However, it is not known who the ‘American security team’ who came to Malakia’s rescue were working for or what capacity they were operating under.
U.S. concern grows about al Qaeda ties to Kenya mall attack 26 Sep 2013 The Islamist militant attack on a Kenyan shopping mall increasingly appears to have been carried out by a dominant faction of al Shabaab, which has ideological and personal ties to al Qaeda [al-CIAduh], U.S. officials said on Thursday. Based on initial reporting from the scene, which is still preliminary and uncertain, U.S. officials believe al Shabaab likely spent a great deal of time planning and staging the siege in Nairobi that killed at least 72 people.
