(AP) - The president of Somalia on Sunday denounced the recruiting of young men from Minnesota's huge Somali community for terrorist activity in his war-ravaged homeland, and said he plans to work with the U.S. government to bring those still alive back home.

President Sheik Sharif Sheik Ahmed spoke with The Associated Press while visiting the Minneapolis area, where authorities believe as many as 20 young Somali men—possibly recruited by a vision of jihad to fight—returned to the impoverished nation over the last two years.

At least three have died in Somalia, including one who authorities believe was the first American suicide bomber. Three others have pleaded guilty in the U.S. to terror-related charges.

"We believe this is a wrong action, that these young men were wronged, they were robbed out of their life. Their parents were wronged," Ahmed told the AP through an interpreter. "The laws of the United States were violated. The security of Somalia was violated. So we condemn (them) without reservation."</div></div>

Oh c'mon ... nobody seriously thought that Obama would make such an outlandish move did they?

Mr Ahmed obviously is a man out of touch with his country squandering his time on petty things such as his nation's security and the safety of it's citizenry.

Luckily, we have dearest leader who is investing 33.6 minutes of his time on important things, such as attempting to secure graft for his cronies in Caponeville, for every 1 minute he spends meeting with the Afghan theater commander.

Compare that to the 14 hours or so Obama wasted flying and speaking about the Olympics, and you get a snapshot of a president off course.</div></div>
