Sarah Obama, the grandmother of President Barack Obama, has been threatened by a Somalian branch of al-Qaeda called Al Shabaab, ABC reports.

Kenyan officials have provided Obama's grandmother with extra security, though she doesn't seem to be concerned.

My life has not been affected in any way. It has not restricted my movement. If the government has decided to bring more security personnel, we are OK with it.

Other branches of al-Qaeda have reacted similarly, claiming that America would "wish for the days of Osama."

    Sure they could attack. And I almost voted 'Yes' but couldn't click it because of the 'Don't mess with Somalian terrorists' tag included. Don't mess with them? They should be rounded up and dropped in the middle of the ocean with Osama's rotting corpse.

    You haven't been listening, he has given SO much credit to the military, Navy Seals, and the CIA. You're terribly misinformed. Remember when Bush took credit for the Iraq War being over and said "Mission Accomplished"? Now THAT was ridiculous... as we know, that war is still being fought.

    You people kill me, your boy George said he wanted him dead or alive. America wanted him dead or alive. If it was Palin or cowboy bush or any other republican,or much as I'd hate to say, if it was anybody white who shot and killed OBL you would never call it cold blood. And you would want their family protected if threaten by it. Sometimes it's hard to think this is not racial.

    LT COL. OLIVER NORTH SAID OBUMMER JUST CAUSED OUR NATION GREAT HARM AND HE SHOULD KEEP HIS MOUTH SHUT, BUT HE KEEPS BRAGGING TO INFLATE HIS LOW SELF ESTEEM. WHAT IS HE TRYING TO PROVE, AFTER HE MADE A FOOL OF HIMSELF BY LYING TO US AGAIN SAYING THE BORDER FENCE IS ALMOST COMPLETED. WHAT? HAD THE NERVE TO TELL US THAT WE ARE SECURE NOW, AS PEOPLE ARE BEING KILLED EVERY DAY, BUT HE IS NOT TALKING TO ME, AS I SEE THRU HIM .BUT HE IS TALKING TO THE IDIOTS OUT THERE THAT SUPPORT HIM. WHOA IS OUR NATION WE MUST EDUCATE THOSE PEOPLE TO MAKE GOOD CHOICES, NOT TO LIKE HIM BECAUSE, THEY SAY HE IS ONE OF OURS, OR HE IS CUTE, RACE DOES NOT ENTER INTO THIS, WE NEED A PRESIDENT WHO IS STRONG AND LOVES OUR NATION, NOT MAKE EXCUSES FOR IT. - THE MAN HAS NO MORALS, AND WILL SAY ANYTHING CAUSE HE LIKES TO HEAR HIMSELF TALK. COME ELECTION DAY, HE IS IN FOR A SURPRISE AS EVEN THE LATINO'S ARE BACKING AWAY FROM HIM BECAUSE THEY ARE A LOT SMARTER THAN THE REST WHO STILL ADORE HIM.

    -_- well for one your point is not stronger because your using caplock. -_- seriously.

    of course its a big risk killing off a huge enemies with loads of followers, any president would probably say "oh dont worry we are safe," probably because so many people are happy and secondly because no one wants havoc to break out. When has the government ever really gave us all the facts. -_- its a thing about media, there is a lot of rumor that goes into it.

    im sure he loves America, why would someone take a job dedicated souly to making decisions for a nation he doesnt love -_-

    i say donald trump needs some morals. attacks to get attention -_- pathetic really.

    and i know youll probably respond, using more caps, but unless you have a good point that isnt just a lot of rant, then i bid you good-bye.

    Really? This is worth your time. You wrote that many words about this subject.

    AFTER READING YOUR BU$HIT BIO -IT ADDS UP-WHEN ONE DOES NOT BELIEVE IN GOD, THEY DO WHAT YOU DO, AS YOU SAID, IF SOMEONE CUTS YOU OFF WHEN DRIVING, YOU HAVE TO SHOW THEM, AND CUT THEM OFF. WHAT A TRUE JERK TWO WRONGS DONT MAKE A RIGHT.- HOW DO YOU KNOW IF THE PERSON WHO CUT YOU OFF WAS A MISTAKE AND YOU HAD TO SHOW THEM BY YOUR AGRESSION TO DO THE SAME- YOU COULD HAVE CAUSED A SERIOUS ACCIDENT. BUT ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS TO PROVE YOUR STUPIDITY. YOU CALL MAN HOOD.YOU ARE A SICK PERSON WHO NEEDS TO BE WATCHED CAREFULLY AT ALL TIMES. I WOULD NOT TRUST YOU OR YOUR JUDGEMENTS AS YOU REACT VERY IRRATIONALLY.
