Siad Barre PRAYING to JESUS to beat Rebels

AMY GOODMAN: And Siad Barre of Somalia?

JEFF SHARLET: Yeah, dictator of Somalia. It’s, to me, one of the scariest stories that I found in their archives. I was able to recreate this, because they dumped 600 boxes of papers in the Billy Graham archives. Siad Barre was a —- not a likely candidate for Christian right recruitment, called himself a Koranic Marxist. But in the early ’80s, the Soviets had abandoned him. There had been a power shift between Somalia and Ethiopia. He was in the market for a new patron:chrisfreshhah:. And working through Senator Chuck Grassley, Republican of Iowa, of course still in office -—

AMY GOODMAN: Talk more about Chuck Grassley, who certainly is in the news now, who, together with Max Baucus, heads the Senate Finance Committee.

JEFF SHARLET: Yeah.

AMY GOODMAN: Baucus, Democrat; Grassley, Republican. Very powerful figure, especially around healthcare right now.

JEFF SHARLET: Indeed. And Grassley has been involved with the organization for quite some time, since the ’80s, when he traveled to Somalia to join Barre, Siad Barre, in prayer to Jesus. And he brought with him a defense contractor named Bill Brehm.

And Barre was a kind of a cynical character, as you might expect for a dictator. He was very clear. He says, “I’m willing to pray to Jesus:damn:, and here’s what I want in return.” He says, “I want my defense budget doubled.” He says, “I want meetings for my officials with the Reagan White House. And I want a sort of a hands-off policy while I crack down on some rebels.:jaynerd: Doug Coe, the leader of the group, wrote back, in essence, “Done, done and done.”

And when we look at history, so it was. And Barre used those weapons, supplied to him in part by the US, to wage a war of almost biblical proportion on his own people, from which Somalia has not recovered to this day. The Family doesn’t consider that a failure; they consider that God’s will for Somalia.

You expected something here didn't you?!?!?
This is propaganda by the gallo who want to spread their religion in our war torn nation. I'm sure that Barre would rather not pray to any God or divine/higher being, since he was a Marxist and religion was a big NO NO. Christianity is like Islam to the Western world, foreign and destructive.

Didn't he say even if he has to ally with the devil? :pachah1:

He's a kaffir. Everyone knows he's an atheist when he brought communism to Somalia and when he killed all the respected Somali Sheikhs.

They deserved it and wish he was here to today to finish off their terror loving extremist kids too
They were Sufis lol so how can they be extremist?

Siad Barre killed them because they were against him editing the Qu'ran and taking some of the pages out.

He was kaffir who destroyed Somalia and brought tribalism. Anyone support him is a tribalist blind dog.

I refuse to accept it, simple as that- to each and every their own. Also, our nation was torn apart from tribal and political reasons, the religious nut jobs call Al-Shay'taan only came into existence 10 or so years ago, in a 3 decade long war.
