Eric Margolis, journalist and author of American Raj, discusses why the US and France are so interested in Mali, of all places; the North African al-Qaeda affiliate borne from the brutal Algerian war; how Africa’s vast size and numerous conflicts give the Pentagon an excuse to stay “globally engaged;” the questionable US alliances with shady militants in Libya and Syria; the CIA’s love-hate relationship with Muammar Gaddafi and Bashar al-Assad; and why puppet governments aren’t as easy to install as they used to be.
