At Least 300 Dead After Saturday’s Terrorist Attack in Somalia

What happened?

The deadliest attack in Somalia in a decade has claimed at least 300 lives, an official said today in Mogadishu.

Reuters reported:

Locals visiting their injured relatives or collecting their bodies filled every available space in Madina hospital.

“My last time to speak with my brother was some minutes before the blast occurred,” Halima Nur, a local mother, told Reuters.

“I am afraid he was among the unrecognized charred bodies that were buried yesterday. I have no hope of getting him alive or dead. But I cannot go home.”

Oh, no. Catch me up:

On Saturday, a double bombing struck two busy spots in Somalia’s capital city. Large truck bombs like those used are the signature mark of Al Shabaab, a terrorist organization linked to al Qaeda.

Glenn’s take:

The only way we can make any sense of tragedies like this one is to remember that good will ultimately triumph.

“Terror won’t and can’t win,” Glenn said. “The good guys always win in the end.”

GLENN: This morning, exhausted, doctors are struggling to keep their eyes open. They are frantically attending screaming patients. Many burned beyond recognition, who are continuously entering and exiting the hospital like a horrific revolving door. These are victims of a double-truck bombing that occurred Saturday in a crowded street in Mogadishu. The deadly attack in Somalia, 300 lives, and still counting.

This is sub-Saharan Africa. And it's not seen this level of violence since 1998, when they bombed the embassy. The Somali government is blaming Al-Qaeda, Al-Shabaab, an extremist group for the bloodshed. The Shabaab, which once controlled most of the cities. Lost their territory in the area, thanks to the Somali army and American counterterrorism operations.

However, it is still a deadly threat to the people of Somalia. And hundreds of people have been killed and wounded in the attacks on the capitol, this year alone.

The Somali president said this attack proves our enemy will stop at nothing to cause our people pain and suffering. Let's unite against terror. Time to unite and pray together. The terror won't win.

I want to bring you a quick message. The terror won't and can't win. The good guys always win in the end. And Shabaab, they're not good guys. We will always be changing and challenging evil, that is spread out worldwide. But we and the good people in Somali, the good people in Europe, the good people in Asia, should take comfort that good wins, in the end -- and our prayers go out to the people of Somalia today.

Tulsi Gabbard Smashes LIES about Our Military & Conservatives | Ep 99

It's hard to put a label on former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard. She has worked with Bernie Sanders but has also felt the fires of the Left and mainstream media for simply putting her love for this country above partisan politics. Lately, she has even sided with conservatives on issues from transgenderism to Big Tech censorship. But as much of the nation dives dangerously deep into partisan politics, Tulsi calls on Democrats to turn their talk of unity into action and joins Glenn to lead the way. Together, they ask who's defining "extremism," why are there still troops guarding the Capitol, and how long will we let our First Amendment be trampled on as Congress "bullies" conservative media outlets and the COVID-19 restrictions persist? And Tulsi shares her own experience in the military that shatters the far-left narrative that it's crawling with white supremacists.

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"
