11/30/12 – Alan Boswell – The Scott Horton Show

by | Nov 30, 2012 | Interviews

Alan Boswell, Africa correspondent for McClatchy Newspapers, discusses how the current rebellion in northern Mali got started after Gaddafi’s fall in Libya; whether the rebels are al-Qaeda, “gangster Jihadis,” or some combination thereof; the long delay in getting boots on the ground in Mali (and these will be African proxy forces, not US military); how US policy is tending toward “let Africa solve it’s own problems;” and why the media is suddenly interested in Congo’s decades-long war.
