Farhan Haji, another former fighter who lives in Mogadishu pointed to the green shrubbery in the tape and said it did not look like Somalia.
In this undated image provided Friday April 3, 2009, by IntelCenter, a man who calls himself an American appears on a video, recently posted on a web site of the Islamic militant group in Somalia, the Global Islamic Media Front, with an English language subtitle bar across the screen. al-Qaida and other Islamic militant groups have posted messages and videos in the past on this web site. The man gives his fighting name as "Abu Mansour al-Amriki," or "the American," and is thought to have possibly held a senior role advising members of Somalia's al-Shabab, which the U.S. considers a terrorist organization.

What a brilliant marketing scheme by "aL Qaeda" and company! First, make one of your "I'm a bad, bad boy" recordings, then get a Jewish media group, like Ben Venzke's IntelCenter or Rita KATZ's SITE to release these recordings, since you know Zionists control most of the MSM around the Western world!
With there being no shortage of actors from MOSSAD Central Casting, look for a series of these spectacular Tel Aviv produced recordings to be released over the next year, or at least until the US is tricked--AGAIN--into fighting another war for Israel.
My fav for the role of "Best Actor" for portraying an American terrorist is California born Adam PEARLMAN, AKA Adam Gadahn.
Man claims in video to be US jihadist in Somalia Apr 3 02:19 PM
MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) - A man who calls himself an American promotes holy war in Somalia in a video posted this week on an Islamic militant Web site.
A U.S. government contractor who tracks extremist propaganda says the footage is the first to show what may be an American with a senior role in al-Shabab, a Somali group the State Department considers a terrorist organization with links to al-Qaida.
The half-hour video features an amateur English-language rap soundtrack and purports to show an operation against Ethiopian troops in Somalia. It appeared on Web sites where al-Qaida and other militant groups often post messages and videos. A caption says it was filmed on July 15, 2008.
A tall man with long dark hair and a wide smile who appears to be in his 20s and gives his nom de guerre as "Abu Mansour al-Amriki," or "the American," urges Muslims around the world to send their children to replace his group's fallen fighters.
Ben Venzke, director of IntelCenter, the U.S. contractor that tracks extremist propaganda, told the AP that the video appears to be authentic.
"It was done in the same manner that all their releases are done," he said. "We have absolutely no reason to believe it's anything but an authentic (al-Shabab) video."
California-born Adam Gadahn has appeared prominently in al-Qaida videos in the role of a top propagandist.
Google al-Shabab and see if you can find their web page. I can't. Wouldn't a world-wide "terrorist" organization have their own web site?
Maybe al-Shabab doesn't have an actual page, since the ISP can be tracked back to either Tel Aviv or Langley, Virginia.
