According to today’s guest Ajamu Baraka, “Boko Haram is incomprehensible when decontextualized from the destabilization, death and destruction unleashed across Africa from the Sahel into West Africa as a result of one historic event – the vicious NATO obliteration of the state of Libya.”

Why has the US made it official policy to destroy other nations – including the famous “seven countries in five years” targeted by the neocons for destruction in the wake of 9/11? Why has the US/NATO annihilated Iraq, Libya, Sudan, and Somalia, and tried to annihilate Syria and Iran? Is this policy of wrecking other countries also being played out in Ukraine…and across the African continent?

Ajamu Baraka’s latest article is “From Benghazi to Boko Haram: Why I support the Benghazi Inquiry.” A long-time human rights defender in the Black Liberation, anti-apartheid and Central American solidarity movements, he has served on the boards of many of the most prominent human rights organizations, and is now Associate fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, DC and an editor and columnist at Black Agenda Report.
