US Deployment of Troops to the African Continent
On December 24th, US President Barack Obama announced the deployment of 3500 troops to various spots on the African continent to supposedly fight terrorism. This was a sneaky move from the government coming the day before Christmas so as to not garner much attention. We speak with Abayomi Azikiwe about this move and its implications. Azikiwe is the editor of the Pan-African News Wire.
