Somali Islamists Offer 10 Camels as Bounty for Obama

CNN, June 9, 2012

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.

    Whatever is demanded for the body of Obama, DEAD OR ALIVE, SHOULD BE GRATEFULLY PAID.

    That’s far too many camels.

  • Seven camels hmm that’s quite a harem, but what no offer to provide the camel’s proof of virginity included?
    These camels could bring dishonour!

    Seriously what century are these guys in?

    I appreciate that Al-Shabaab was being ‘Tongue-in-Cheek’, nevertheless I think ten camels for Obama is nine camels too many.
    Two camels for Hilary Clinton is hardly fair; two camels for one camel can’t exactly be considered fair trade.

      You forgot that Hillary has two fat calves.  😉

    Bill Clinton will gladly take the two camels in exchange for having Hillary knocked off. The only reason they’ve stayed married is the legal doctrine of spousal immunity — neither can be compelled to testify against the other in any criminal case. If they were ever to divorce, both would instantly be buried under an avalanche of subpoenas.

      LOL! You articulated that so well.

    • By God Watson, I think you are on to something!

    The #1 reason the USAF missed Ghaddafi in 1986-

    “How could we know it was the camel’s turn to be ontop…”

    (In fact, they put two GBU-10, 2,000lb LGB, into the mansion where his wife and daughters lived but not the tent next door…)

    Negroes were formed from camel dung.
