CIA and Kenyan Military Intelligence infiltrated the top command of the Al-Qaeda allied terrorist group Al-Shabaab leading to the successful tracking and subsequent killing of the leader of the Al-Shabaab and 6 of his most trusted commanders.
The accuracy of the drone airstrike draws out a picture of well coordinated intelligence sharing between a person within the ranks of the Al-Shabaab and one who was in the meeting location.
This person can only be a member of Al-Shabaab and a trusted lieutenant in the militants top rank.
This is not the only strike against Godane, there has been others but were unfruitful for factors such as lack of opportunity to relay the intelligence in time or safely.
The current confusion about the AMISOM OPERATION INDIAN OCEAN provided the correct atmosphere and environment for watchers to throw caution in the wind and the agent make that maiden call to CIA and Military intelligence at Mada Bay and coordinate the drone strike.
Strategic Intelligence has been tracking both movement and the behavior of the top command of the terror outfit besides sharing the intelligence with strategic partners in counter-terrorism and military in Kenya.
There is a very reliable agent in the Al-Shabaab top command who uses very sophisticated SIGNIT to provide both Kenya military and the Central Intelligence Agency with strategic intelligence on the terror group.
The contact was a trusted lieutenant of Abdi Godane hence the very accurate intelligence on the actual location of the feared Al-Shabaab leader during the hell-fire missile drone strike on Monday.
Kenya Military Intelligence has been very successful in infiltrating Al-Shabaab and using this particular intelligence network to thwart strategic deployment of the militants resources in Somalia.
KDF DMI has managed to have agents inside the command of the terror network. These agents have rose ranks over years and became confidants of the top leadership of the terror group.
These agents have been providing crucial intelligence on both operational capability and the leadership’s behavior and movement.
The death of Abdi Godane is a big blow to the terror militants.
There will be a power vacuum and a lot of infighting in the top brass of the Al-Shabaab.
A lot of damage has been done on the leadership. Strategic Intelligence has been able to discuss surrender terms with some of the top commanders of the terror group who also contributed to the accurate killing of the radical Islamists leader.
