Winning over hearts and minds....

One heart at a time.

Aboud Rogo Mohammed shot dead in Mombasa.... this should be interesting.

"A police source confirmed Mohammed had been killed.

"He has been shot dead, he was in a vehicle with his family including wife and children when they were attacked," the source told the AFP news agency.

Joseph Kitu, the regional deputy police chief, confirmed a shooting incident, but gave no further details.

Mohammed was placed on a US sanctions list in July for "engaging in acts that directly or indirectly threaten the peace, security or stability of Somalia", specifically for recruiting and fundraising for al-Shabab.

The United Nations Security Council placed a travel ban and asset freeze on the cleric in July, saying he had provided "financial, material, logistical or technical support to al-Shabab".

He was the "main ideological leader" of Kenya's Al Hijra group, also known as the Muslim Youth Center (MYC), the UN said in July.

The group is viewed as a close ally of the al-Shabab in Kenya.

Mohammed "used the extremist group as a pathway for radicalisation and recruitment of principally Swahili-speaking Africans for carrying out violent militant activity in Somalia," the UN said.

MYC leader Sheikh Ahmad Iman Ali, in a message posted on Twitter, said: "We are on the right track when our leaders get shahadah [martyrdom]."

"He will remain in our hearts forever," the MYC added.

Another message offered the grim warming that the "kuffar [unbelievers] will pay" for his death."

JSOC is in Kenya.

This is the new face of war... in addition to the old ways of purchasing $300-$400 million dollar fighter jets that don't perform as intended.

War? I thought this was the new face of diplomacy.... "Black Ops Diplomacy".

On second thought, failed foreign policy strategies of a bygone age.
