Abu Mansour Al-Amriki American Commander of the Somalia Shabaab

On March 31, 2009, the media division of the Somali jihadist group Shabab Al-Mujahideen released a 31-minute video featuring "
Abu Mansour Al-Amriki," an American commander in the Al-Qaeda-linked group.
Abu Mansour has been shown before among the Somali jihadis, but this is the first time that his face has been left uncovered.
Approximately half of the video is taken up by Abu Mansour; the majority of the time he speaks in English, but he gives a short talk in passable Arabic as well.
The soundtrack to the video includes jihad anthems and raps in American-accented English, presumably performed by Abu Mansour.
At the end of the video, another English-speaking jihadist, who is not identified, calls on foreign youth to join the jihad in Somalia.
