Fond du Lac Police Chief William Lamb said the officer was following the suspect’s vehicle at about 5.30pm on Tuesday when the incident occurred.
“Both the trooper and the suspect were killed in the exchange of gunfire,” he said.
There are no further details about the trooper or the suspect.
The Wisconsin Department of Justice said investigations are taking place into several crimes that occurred on Tuesday in Marinette County and in Fond du Lac, including the death of the trooper.
“We cannot confirm at this time definitively how these crimes fit together but investigators are working to provide an accurate timeline of events,” a spokesman said.
Marinette County Sheriff’s office issued a statement saying authorities had been notified about 1:43 p.m. of a bank robbery in the village of Wausaukee.
It said a man had fired one round from a handgun and robbed the bank.
It went on to say it later learned the suspect had exchanged gunfire with a state trooper in Fond du Lac.
Meanwhile, in San Jose, California, another officer was shot and killed while responding to a call of a suicidal man.
Michael Johnson, a 14-year force veteran, received a fatal gunshot wound as he and colleagues approached the suspect’s apartment on Tuesday night.
The attacker, 57-year-old Scott Dunham, was found dead with a gunshot wound, though it is unclear if it was self-inflicted or from officers who returned fire.]]>
He added, “President Obama still firmly believes what he said in Jerusalem two years ago — that peace is necessary, just and possible. Peace is necessary because it is the only way to ensure that a secure state of Israel is both Jewish and democratic. Israel cannot maintain military control of another people indefinitely. That’s the truth.”
It’s not the first time the word “occupation” has been used by an Obama official. In fact, in 2013, President Obama used it himself.
“The Palestinian people deserve an end to occupation and the daily indignities that come with it,” Obama said in Ramallah during a joint appearance with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
McDonough’s remarks continued the White House’s pushback against Netanyahu’s comments before his re-election that a two-state solution was off the table. Netanyahu has since walked back the remarks.
“Over the course of President Obama’s administration,” McDonough said, “most recently with the tireless efforts of Secretary Kerry, the United States has expended tremendous energy in pursuit of this goal. That is why the prime minister’s comments on the eve of the election — in which he first intimated and then made very clear in response to a follow-up question that a Palestinian state will not be established while he is prime minister — were so troubling.”
McDonough said the Obama administration will continue to oppose Israeli settlement expansion because “it undermines the prospects for peace.”
He also made the case for what he called a “realistic and achievable” Iranian nuclear deal with Iran in some of the most frank comments on the subject by an Obama administration official.
“A scenario where Iran forgoes domestic enrichment capacity for all time would surely be ideal, but it’s not grounded in reality. Not even our closest partners support denying Iran the ability to pursue peaceful nuclear energy forever, and Iran already knows how to enrich uranium. We can’t turn back the clock on that. An absolutist position makes for good rhetoric, but as Ambassador Rice said, ‘sound bites won’t stop Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.’
“The bottom line is this — compared to the alternatives, diplomacy offers the best and most effective way to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, and this is our best shot at diplomacy.”
It’s all part of a White House push to keep the possibility of a nuclear deal alive and not have it tabled by Congress.]]>

Our legislators are giving Ka Joog nearly 5 million dollars through HF1515 / SF1480 but have you talked to the Somali community? Did you speak to mosques and imams and leaders on what they think? This is what many will tell you:
-Many in the Somali community think that Ka Joog makes money off of fearmongering. Our community includes lots of youth that are doing great things. They are working to become teachers, doctors, lawyers, and engineers. Many in the community think that Ka Joog profits off the narrative that all Somali youth are potential terrorists. They hold all Somalis responsible for the actions of 40 youth. This HURTS our community and creates a stigma.
-Some Ka Joog leaders, including a founder, have criminal records themselves and many believe they are in no position to be around youth. We ask that you do a thorough criminal background check on these individuals.
-In 2013, Ka Joog had an income of $95,653 and assets worth $68,314. How do you expect them to go from managing $100,000 to nearly $5 million?
-Ka Joog has internal conflicts and infighting. Several board members recently left the organization due to disagreements, including those who held leadership roles and helped build the organization in its early years.
-Ka Joog leaders lack nonprofit management backgrounds. They have an incomplete file with GuideStar and it raises questions on their ability to manage a nonprofit. Ka Joog has not participated in the GuideStar exchange, has not reported financial data to Guidestar, does not provide mission objectives, does not include an impact summary, and has ZERO reviews. Nonprofit organizations that have their act together have this information on GuideStar.
-Many in the Somali community think that the FBI secretly runs the organziation and they do not refer their children, neighbors, friends or congregation members to Ka Joog. This is probably because Ka Joog received an FBI award and there is great suspicion and fear of the FBI in our community.
-There are tribal issues in the Somali community and you will sideline and exclude several tribes by supporting Ka Joog. This is not an organization that speaks for the Somali community and is not supported by all.
-There is already a process in place for organizations to get grants through foundations and state grants, and this legislative direct funding to groups undermines a fair process. We ask that you fund existing grants and funding programs, but not specific organizations, especially ones that are controversial in the community and lack experience.
The community deserves to know who their money is going to and we will publicly raise these issues as this bill moves forward.]]>

Once hailed by President Barack Obama as a model for fighting extremism, the U.S. counterterrorism strategy in Yemen has all but collapsed as the country descends into chaos, according to U.S. and Yemeni officials.
Operations against militants have been scaled back dramatically amid the fall of the American-backed government and the evacuation of U.S. personnel. What had been consistent pressure on Yemen’s dangerous al-Qaida affiliate has been eased, the officials say, and a safe haven exists for the development of an offshoot of the Islamic State group.
It’s a swift and striking transformation for an anti-terror campaign Obama heralded just six months ago as the template for efforts to fight the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. The shift has left Obama open to criticism that he failed to anticipate the risks of a light footprint strategy that aims to put fragile governments and beleaguered local security forces, not the U.S. military, at the forefront.
In response, administration officials argue that the U.S. has no choice but to rely on proxies in the terror fight if it wants to avoid American ground troops becoming bogged down as they did in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Yet Barbara Bodine, a former U.S. ambassador to Yemen, said even the most optimistic regional experts did not share Obama’s view in the fall that the Yemen campaign was a model of success.
“It was being defined in terms of what we were doing to develop local forces and use drones and counter the immediate and real security threat,” said Bodine, now director of the Institute for the Study of Diplomacy at Georgetown University. “But what we hadn’t done, certainly had not done visibly enough, was get at the economic and governance issues that were driving the problem.”
Since September, Houthi rebels linked to Iran have ousted President Abed-Rabbo Mansour Hadi and dissolved the parliament. Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), which has been affiliated with some of the most serious attempted attacks on the U.S. since 9/11, has sought to exploit the chaos. Last month, the U.S. shuttered its embassy in the capital of Sanaa, and over the weekend the remainder of American military personnel withdrew from the south of the country.
“Certainly, repositioning our forces out of Yemen will make our fight against AQAP more difficult. There is no question about that,” Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren said Tuesday.
Former CIA director Michael Hayden told Congress that U.S. intelligence relationships in Yemen “will erode over time because of our lack of physical presence in the county.”
Since Obama took office, the U.S. has poured millions of dollars into efforts to stabilize Yemen’s government and boost its security forces. Under Hadi, U.S.-trained Yemeni troops were mounting regular raids to kill and capture al Qaida militants, punctuated by occasional CIA drone strikes aimed at senior figures.
The strategy has been guided by the central tenets of Obama’s philosophy for fighting extremists overseas: targeting extremists from the air, bolstering the capacity of foreign governments and avoiding putting large numbers of U.S. military personnel on the ground in dangerous countries.
“It is the model that we’re going to have to work with, because the alternative would be massive U.S. deployments in perpetuity, which would create its own blowback and cause probably more problems than it would potentially solve,” Obama said in January as the situation in Yemen deteriorated.
Now, virtually all of the Yemeni troops that had worked with the U.S. are engaged on one side or another of a three-pronged political struggle between the remnants of the Hadi government, supporters of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, and the Houthi faction, U.S. officials say. The officials insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to speak by name about sensitive intelligence assessments.
CIA drone strikes will continue, the officials said, but there will be fewer of them. The agency’s ability to collect intelligence on the ground in Yemen, while not completely gone, is much diminished. There have been just four U.S. drone strikes reported in Yemen this year, according to Long War Journal, a web site that tracks the attacks. That is about half the pace that last year resulted in 23 strikes over 12 months.
What’s less clear is whether AQAP will be able to take advantage of the situation to renew its active plotting against Western aviation. The group has successfully put three bombs on American-bound jets, none of which exploded. In 2012, the CIA, along with British and Saudi intelligence services, used a double agent to obtain a new design by AQAP’s master bomb maker of a device made to slip past airport security.
On Capitol Hill, there was bipartisan concern about the intelligence gap that could be created by the tumult in Yemen and the withdrawal of American personnel.
“Good intelligence stops plots against the homeland,” said Rep. Michael McCaul, the Texas Republican who chairs the Homeland Security Committee. “Without that intelligence, we cannot effectively stop it.”
Rep. Adam Schiff of California, ranking Democrat on the House intelligence committee, said the drawdown of the American presence “does diminish our visibility into what’s going on there and given the concerns about what we have about AQAP and their bomb-making prowess, that’s a concern.”
Ikraam Ali said I never knew that ka joog folks are this bad ..I need to stop trusting every group I see and if this what they are paying back our Somali community that is sick and it hurts that people that we trust with our kids and community would do something like this ..sick guys…!!!
Shame on espionage group called” KA JOOG These individuals have a trouble with the law like (Drinking while Driving DWI) but they act innocent in front of our community. They have spied on our community’s businesses;such as home care and adult cares.If you trust these Ka Joog group,you will fall into a wrong hands.somalidu waxay tirahdaa Ninkaad Ka baha katolanaysid kabihiisa ayaa la eegaa.” Recently,they have faced a lot division and rifts despite of lack of funding from the agencies they spy for . What will they do with 4 million dollars? We shouldn’t trust them with our kids because they need help before they can help our children. They don’t deserve our hard earned money to party. Irresponsible kids chasing after money. Where are their parents? Please someone tell these criminals to clean their record and get a real job..
Youth group leaders want millions of dollars in state cash to fund activity programs designed to keep Minnesota’s young Somalis out of the clutches of extremist groups.
The Associated Press reports that Somali youth group Ka Joog are asking for $4.35 million of state cash spread over two years, which it says would keep at-risk Somali youths in Minnesota’s public school system occupied through arts initiatives, workforce training and after-school programs.
Speaking to a Senate policy and budget meeting on Thursday, Ka Joog executive director Mohamed Farah said: “It’s an issue that we must come together to combat. It’s an ideology issue, and we must fight ideology with an ideology.”
International extremism is a concern for state lawmakers, made even more so this week by the incidents seen in Paris, as at least 22 Minnesotans are thought to have gone to Somalia over the past eight years to fight for terrorist network al-Shabab.
Also, in November, two Minnesotans were charged with attempting to aid the Islamic State in Syria, one of whom was stopped at Minneapolis-Saint Paul airport, while the other is believed to have made it to Syria.
A formal request for the cash has yet to be put to state lawmakers, AP says, but if it was approved further down the line, it would mean a significant amount of money would be put towards combating extremism in the state.
The $4.35 million would be in addition to a federally-funded Department of Justice pilot program running in Minneapolis and St. Paul also focused on the Somali population, which is being led by Minnesota’s U.S attorney Andrew Luger.
Luger is preparing to announce next month his action plan for the program, designed to prevent a rise in extremism among the 30,000 Somalis living in the Metro, that will center on job training and community engagement with those at risk of recruitment. Ka Joog has said it would look to spread workshops to other cities in Minnesota.
The Somali Press notes that youths are being targeted via social media channels via extremist propaganda, and calls on families to be more vigilant and aware of what their relatives are doing online.
Ka Joog, which already runs a number of events and workshops designed to help Somali-Americans in Minnesota, said that unlike the DOJ pilot, it would look to spread its own programs outside of the Metro area, to other cities in Minnesota.
Do you think we can trust this group with 4 Million dollars ?]]>
