Fazul is the Inteligence Chief for Al Shabaab

According to Business Day Fazul Abdullah Muhammadis running the inteligence campaign of the Shabaab.

"At the moment Spearheading the insurgency is al-Shabaab (“the Youth”), an extremist group which I reported last year emerged within the ICU’s armed forces and is led by a kinsman and protégé of ICU council leader Sheikh Hassan Dahir ‘Aweys, Adan Hashi ‘Ayro, who trained in Afghanistan with al-Qaeda before returning to Somalia after 9/11.

Recent intelligence indicates that Shabaab efforts have been coordinated by Fazul Abdullah Muhammad, the reputed leader of al-Qaeda in East Africa who is on the FBI’s “Most Wanted Terrorists” list with a five million dollars bounty on his head for his role in the 1998 bombings of the US embassies in Dar -es- Salaam and Nairobi.

Fazul, who is said to have been the target of the guided-missile destroyer USS Chafee’s shelling of a stretch of the Somali coast [in June 2007], is reportedly working directly as intelligence chief for the Shabaab campaign.
