PRESS-REGISTER MOBILE AL….A Website used by the Somali jihadist group Al-Shabaab that has been tied to a suspected terrorist from Daphne was hosted by an Internet company based in the United States, according to a private investigator. Bill Warner, an investigator from Sarasota, Fla., who tried to shut down a number of Websites linked to extremist groups, said he first targeted an al-Shabaab Website in May 2008 after the U.S. government labeled it a terrorist organization. Dotster Inc. of Vancouver, Wash., took the Website down in January 2009, Bill Warner said, after an order from the federal government, but the damage had been done. The Al-Shabaab (Al-Qaeda linked) terrorist recruiting website www.kataaib.net that has been hosted by the Dotster Web Co in Vancouver WA since April 13rd 2007 was finally shut down by a US Government order on Jan 23rd 2009 ! “Registrant: Domain pending cancellation per government order c/o 8100 NE Parkway Drive, Suite 300 Vancouver, WA 98662 US, phone 360-253-2210″
Bill Warner said news reports of Hammami’s past as a computer science student confirmed his suspicions that al-Amriki had provided technical assistance to al-Shabaab. “At that time, I suspected he was involved with setting up the Website,” he said. “It appears Omar, with his background, is the perfect guy to set this up for them.” Rick Schwein, the assistant special agent in charge of counter-terrorism efforts at the Mobile office of the FBI, said he could not comment on a specific case. In general, he said, the bureau works within the constraints of the law to take down Websites that lure recruits and coordinate terrorist activity. “It’s something that is of great concern to us,” he said.
It took 21 months for the Dotster Web Hosting Co to do the right thing, maybe now the Columbian Newspaper in Vancouver will re-think the stance they took on protecting the Al-Shabaab’s website www.kataaib.net “right” to free speech, even thought the Al-Shabaab was designated a Terrorist Organization in Feb 2008. The local vancouver Columbian Newspaper ran an attack piece calling me an “Internet Censor” and telling me that it was none of my business; “In our view “The Columbian Newspaper”: Internet censor (Bill Warner) Wednesday, May 07, 2008″.
