A report by the New York Police Department into the September terror attacks at an upscale shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya suggests that only four gunmen were involved–and all four may have escaped the clutches of the Kenyan police and armed forces.

The report, released Tuesday, casts new doubts on the official story of the attack, which began September 21 when gunmen from the Al Qaeda-linked Somali terror group Al-Shabab attacked the mall, a popular spot among Western diplomats and tourists. After a siege by Kenyan authorities, followed by several explosions that resulted in the partial collapse of the mall on the morning of September 24, government officials claimed that the site had been cleared and that four attackers had died.


The report suggests that the four terrorists left the mall long before Kenyan authorities declared the scene cleared.

According to the report, there is no evidence that any of the gunmen remained in the mall past 12:15 a.m. September 22, the last time they were seen on the mall’s closed-circuit TV system. In fact, the report claims that the attack itself lasted a mere six hours, after which the terrorists huddled in a storeroom, prayed, and tended to one of their colleagues, who had been wounded in the attack’s early moments.

The Kenyan government has said that between 10 and 15 gunmen, some of whom may have been foreign fighters, were involved in the attack that left more than 60 civilians dead. The report says that the four gunmen worked in teams of two, entering the mall at two different locations and carrying only AK-47 machine guns and grenades. {snip}

The report is highly critical of the response by Kenyan authorities, saying that a tactical response team did not arrive at Westgate until 90 minutes after the attack began. Police–who were fully armed, but were not carrying identification– entered the complex and were fired upon by Kenyan soldiers who had also been summoned. The friendly fire incident killed the tactical response team’s commander and wounded another officer.


The report dismisses claims by Kenyan authorities that the gunmen set mattresses on fire to create a literal smokescreen, and suggests that the mall’s collapse may have been caused by the Kenyan military’s use of  rocket-propelled grenades and anti-tank missiles. The heat from the fires caused by the resulting explosions may have weakened the mall’s structure.

The report does back testimony of eyewitnesses who claimed the gunmen targeted non-Muslims for killing, asking them to recite Muslim prayers and name the mother of the Muslim prophet Muhammad. The report says that no hostages appeared to have been taken, and that no women were involved, despite reports in the Kenyan and British press that the so-called “White Widow,” aka British-born Samantha Lewthwaite, played a key role in planning or executing the attack.

The report also acknowledges “significant” evidence that Kenyan soldiers looted the mall during and following the siege.

The report is the outcome of an investigation by the NYPD, who sent several detectives to Nairobi in the aftermath of the attack with the New York Joint Terrorism Task Force.

    What business was the Nairobi mall attack of the NYPD?

    • Spartacus

      They probably needed a little more diversity …

    • Manaphy

      Because the NYPD is actually the JYPD, and the mayor, who is elected by the fine citizens of JY tells the JYPD what to do, if you know what I mean by “J”.

    • I suspect that because the big cities on the US East Coast are likely ground-zero for future Muzzie raghead terrorist attacks, the cops there pay close attention to counter-terrorism operations elsewhere in the world to see what works and what doesn’t. Sending in Afritard looters masquerading as “soldiers” apparently doesn’t.

      • Pro_Whitey

        I think you’ve got it. Sounds like a cluster bleep. Easy solution, though. Get rid of the bleepin’ Muslims!

      • mikebowen55

        What works is to not import these somalis in the first place.

      • Brian

        I think it’s safe to say that firing anti-tank missiles, indoors, at guys who a) don’t have tanks and b) have probably already left the building is not the brightest idea. So NYPD can cross that one off the list.

      • NeanderthalDNA

        NYPD has as much experience as the feds in this regard. Kinda cool to think the Big Apple is sending some gumshoes to figure out what really happened better than the feds…

        Well, that was Juliani-Bloomberg NYC. Now for DeBlackio NYC…

    • jane johnson

      Maybe NY based stores in the mall?

    • JohnEngelman

      They needed a few non affirmative action employees to figure out what really happened.

    • Sick of it

      Our police forces must be globalized, just as our military is being globalized.

    • me

      Isn’t our POTUS allegedly from Kenya? Maybe his brothers and sisters that live in Kenya were the victims and/or perps?

    • Mike Conrad

      Built, owned, and partially staffed by Chosenites.

      My compatriots may be excused for not knowing, as of course the MSM in the USA hardly breathed a word of this connection.

    • Luca

      The NYPD needs more experience in dealing with looting, rampaging, murdering sub-Saharans.

  • Kenyan Afritard soldiers are incompetent? Fox News should have withheld the identity of the country involved in order to prevent “profiling”, because it might affect the way Afritards pretend to feel.

  • Luca

    The average Kenyan IQ is 72, (only three points below Forrest Gump.) I remember seeing pictures of that mall and thinking “Wow, I would never have guessed they could build such a modern looking 1st world building. Then I found out it was built by an Israeli.

    Now we find the Kenyan government slow to respond, the army killing the police, the gunmen escaping, and a treasure trove of misinformation and lies being disseminated by the Kenyan authorities.

    This is painting a picture of Kenyans as incompetent, low IQ liars.

    Say, isn’t Obama half-Kenyan? Well, that would explain the lies and incompetency.

    • smedley

      The worse part is that the Kenyan half is the smart half.

    • NeanderthalDNA

      It was all just a gigantic epic cluster-eff black eff-up disaster after all…

      Go FIGGER!

  • Strike_Team

    Being in law enforcement, all I can think of are the videos of my “brothers in blue”, all of them black, looting in New Orleans after hurricane Katrina came to town to provide Americans with a look at the real behavior of “African Americans”. Their typical behavior.

    I have a met a few decent black officers, but they were a distinct minority. Same for hispanics. A few decent officers, the rest are engaged in a big scam, using the job to “get things”, while doing their best to hide it.

    • Sick of it

      We have one such officer locally who has committed God only knows how many crimes, yet he’s still on the force.

      • Strike_Team

        SoCal has so many rotten apples in law enforcement due to consent decrees and affirmative action that it is very important for white people to keep on eye their civil servants every step of the way should they become involved with them for some reason. And by that I expressly mean brown and black officers. There are a few bad eggs who are white or Asian, but they really are few and far between.

        The level of malfeasance when it comes to the darker officers is unreal, and covered up by the brass and the media. The media loves a bad cop story, but they hem and haw when the officers aren’t white, and tend to bury most items that involve the darker officers. It’s like the show “COPS”. The producer admitted that they cut out most of the footage with black and brown criminals, yet the show was still full of them fouling up. I’d like to have someone ride with me for a month, shoot it all. As long as he was a character along the lines of the Croc Hunter, in order to present the audience with a more realistic vision of urban America.

    • Brian

      Down here in Atlanta we had to lock up the sheriff for murdering his election opponent. I’m grateful for guys like you though– keeping the lid on things. How do you constantly deal with the dregs of society without snapping though? I don’t know if I could do that…pretty misanthropic already.

      • smedley

        I remember that trial, that was another example of black mismanagement of law enforcement. The half witted black prosecutor was unable to convict the trigger men who did the killing but was able to convict the sheriff who paid the same trigger men who killed the new sheriff. Black logic is something to see.

      • Strike_Team

        It’s very hard Brian. Especially when you’re aware of what’s going on, the bigger picture, who’s really responsible. I do think whites will end up alright, but we are headed for the worst of times in what I believe is short order. The training going on around the country, which is obviously designed to teach officers to work with the military in conducting operations against American citizens right here on American soil, is just one big tip off as to what’s up. Along with just who is behind that training, who is telling us that certain areas will need to be protected. It’s going to backfire. I have no doubt.

        • Brian

          Stay strong. When the day comes we’ll need those like you to lead through the darkness. I don’t know if you watch that show The Walking Dead, but the police officer character, Rick Grimes, is a pretty handy man to have around in case of a ‘zombie apocalypse’.

          When you say ‘in what I believe is short order’, what kind of timeframe are you thinking of?

          • Strike_Team

            Four to six years. Ten max, but I believe it will be sooner than a decade. Other like minded “guys” feel it will be the next seven to fifteen max. We all agree a huge collapse is looming. We also have no illusions about ever collecting those fat police pensions so many think we all get LOL.

          • Brian

            What do you think the flashpoint/trigger will be? Sometimes it’s obvious: the Superdome in New Orleans had Katrina as a trigger, even though the underlying conditions were there all along. I can see things are headed in a bad direction, but I can’t get a feel for what the trigger is likely to be for a more general, national ‘time of trouble’…economic deterioration + immigration/demographic change as causes, but what is that final straw?

          • Strike_Team

            The “elites” may kick it off on purpose, because they are arrogant and foolish enough to think they can handle it, clean things up. They can’t. What I mean by the elites kicking it off is that they could do something like engineer the righteous shooting or beating of a black or brown criminal by police into an event that can only be answered by riots from the oppressed. However, I think that if “they” start “it” using their power of the press and purse, it will be something much more insidious, something publicly blamed on whites with the drums beating 24/7 from “news” outlets. I think that’s something to go into under a different thread or site.

            For now, we’ll have to put up with the increase of Holiday Season shootings that are of course random, ahem. Those shootings that always end up with the usual suspects crying for “sensible gun control”. Meaning the disarming of whites. If they get their way in terms of gun control, our “leaders” will take off their masks and literally call publicly for whites to be viewed as targets until they are “brought under control”.

After a siege by Kenyan authorities, followed by several explosions that resulted in the partial collapse of the mall on the morning of September 24

    So let’s see… four days from the time of the attack to the mall’s collapse, while the actual attack itself lasted only 6 hours. That means the terrorists were terrorizing for six hours and the Kenyan “police” were raping, pillaging, savaging, looting and destroying for three and a half days. This was not so much a terrorist attack as a standard, garden variety chimpout.

    • Brian

      They had to stop and frisk all that lovely merchandise.

  • mikebowen55

    I thought the NYPD was too busy confiscating firearms from working class White folks for such silliness like this.

  • smedley

    This is typical of African “armies” and “law enforcement.” There are stories all over the continent about African “peacekeepers” raping, looting, murdering and occasionally posting on Facebook when they are supposed to be helping. This was just another example, a disaster happens and faster than you can say “Rodney King” they are at it again.

    • Max Krakah

      Lancelot link was more competent than the negroes in afreeka

  • CoweringCoward

    I am betting recruitment adverts for African armies look a little different than the ones they use for our people stateside.

  • StillModerated

    From reports on the pages of AmRen, I believe the Kenyans liberated liquor, cigarettes, bling, and sneakers. I guess the perps found it easy enough to give ’em the slip.

    • Looting is part and parcel of black African military operations. “Operation Pay Yourself” in the 1990s Sierra Leone unrest was a great example.

      • Max Krakah

        it is part and parcel of black afreekin DNA.

  • mikebowen55

    Well did they say what they’re “best” at?

    • Scott Carter

      Muh dikkery, mostly.

  • Max Krakah

    This is why they can’t have anything nice in afreeka

  • Brian

    Both black. Sidney Dorsey and Derwin Brown.

  • Rhialto

    Your statement is accurate. The difference in brain between Africans and Whites is not just in IQ. My observation is that Blacks with 70-80 IQ have better social and language skills than low IQ whites. On the other hand, Blacks with 100-110 IQ have much less impulse control and long range planning skills than average IQ whites.

    ‘the mall’s collapse may have been caused by the Kenyan military’s use of rocket-propelled grenades and anti-tank missiles.’
    What?!?! How is this the logical response to a hostage crisis in a mall??

    • Of course it didn’t collapse for that reason! Shopping malls are designed to withstand prolonged heavy weapons fire. The collapse was doubtless caused by racism, sexism, homophobia, profiling, home-schooling, disenfranchisement, global warming, de turrble, turrble legacy ob de colonialism and a man wearing a blue jacket.

      • Brian

        At least they were successful in ‘closing the achievement gap’ between the roof and floor.

  • Scott Carter

    Considering the typical IQ of the average African is around 70, this should come as no surprise to anybody who has powers of perception. Mud huts and muh dik.

  • Not just on bases, but inside some of the larger ships.

  • Brian

    For those of you who skipped the full report, it also says the Kenyan ‘authorities’ had no idea of the mall’s layout before entering, and had no idea they could use the closed-circuit tv system to get intel on the bad guys.

    Kenyanstone Kops.

    • No idea of the mall’s layout? They couldn’t have called the city planning office (or some Kenyan equivalent) to have them send the architect’s blueprints over by fax? My suspicion is that they were actually too stupid to think of doing so, and that even if they’d got the plans, none of them would have known how to read them.

      • Brian

        The city planning office (witch doctor) may have accidentally erased the blueprints (kicked the sand drawing with his foot) while trying to fax it (get high to communicate telepathically with juju).

  • Strike_Team

    In the military, the bold moves will eventually come from the mid-level officers. I hate to say that I feel some of my brothers in blue will be a bit hesitant at first to go the right way, having that “law and order” – meaning the “we have to follow the rules” mentality. That will disappear quickly as they see their own being the only ones dealt true punishment by our desperate masters.

    Yes, it will all backfire. I hope it’s sooner rather than later. For the sake of white children most of all.
