Al-Shabaab has placed a contract worth camels on Barack Obama

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The United States offers millions for information leading to the capture of the world’s most wanted terrorists.

    A Somali militant group has purportedly countered with an offer of camels for U.S. officials.

    Al-Shabaab has placed a bounty of 10 camels for President Barack Obama and two camels for information on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    An audio statement posted on jihadist websites purportedly from Al-Shabaab jeered news that the United States is offering millions of dollars for information on seven key members of al-Shabaab through its Rewards for Justice program.

    The man on the audio claimed to be Fuad Mohamed Khalaf, considered by the State Department to be Al-Shabaab’s leading fundraiser. The United States has offered $5 million for information of his whereabouts.

    “Whoever brings the mujahidin information about the whereabouts of infidel Obama and the lady of Bill Clinton, the woman named Hillary Clinton, I will give a reward,” the man said.

    A study by Galkayo University, which looked at the effects of drought on livestock, said the average cost of a camel in Somalia is $700.

    CNN can not independently verify the authenticity of the audio recording, which was purportedly made by Khalaf during a speech to followers in the southern port city of Merca.

    The U.S. State Department’s Rewards for Justice program is offering $7 million for information on the location of Ahmed Abdi Aw-Mohamed, the founder of the Islamist group in Somalia.

    This year, he and al Qaeda’s leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri, released a joint video formally announcing a merger between the terror groups.

    In announcing the bounties on Mohamed and his key associates Thursday, the State Department called al-Shabaab “a threat to the stability of East Africa and to the national security interests of the United States.”

    The State Department said it is also offering up to $5 million each for information leading to the location of four of Aw-Mohamed’s associates, including Khalaf. In addition, it is offering up to $3 million each for two of the terror group’s other leaders.

  5. Location: America. You know, big island to the West of us...

    Right, that's 9 Camels please!
  6. 10 camels? You can get offered more than that for a blonde haired 6 year old daughter in a Tunisian market
  7. Well, I'd get a great big turnip in the country instead.

    But seriously, I'd walk a mile for a camel.
  8. Camel toe's then I talk.
  9. They are good camels very pretty.
  10. We shouldn't sneer at Al Shabbab(sp), at least they're having a go. Probably all they can afford, poor buggers...
  11. I bet the DoD has got the hump over this, but it may have it's compensations.

  12. Worrying thing for me is that he will probably have more success with his offer.
  13. Would that be dromedary or bactrian camels?
