Al-Shabaab Threat against Mall of America

Foreign Policy published on 23 February 2015 a commentary titled "Al-Shabaab Threat against Mall of America Could Be a Call to Action" by David Francis. 

The article discusses the possibility of an attack by al-Shabaab on shopping malls in the United States.  The piece treats the recent decision by Merchants Bank of California to end the handling of remittances from the Somali diaspora as a counterterrorism success without noting the damage it does to the Somali economy and the potentially greater problems it could pose for countering terrorism.
