2/5/13 Rob Prince

Rob Prince, lecturer in International Studies at the University of Denver, discusses the background of the Mali-Algeria crisis; France’s economic interests in north Africa; the long history of warm US-Algeria relations – despite outward appearances; how the In-Amenas gas facility hostage fiasco badly hurt Algeria’s terrorism-fighting credentials; and the US’s militarization of Africa as part of the “Asia pivot” change in foreign policy.
