Did the Obama Administration supply arms to the terrorist group holding more than 200 girls hostage in Africa? Some political observers believe military aid provided to Libyan rebels may have found their way to the organization.
In Nigeria, the militant group Boko Haram kidnapped 276 girls in April.
President Hollande of France is urging coordinated efforts among nations to strike at the group, which has killed thousands of people in recent years. Nigeria’s army is ill-equipped to take on the terrorist forces.
Ajamu Baraka is a fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies, and has written extensively on Africa. Recently, the author wrote From Benghazi to Boko Haram: Why I support the Benghazi Inquiry.
Baraka is our guest on the show today. He is here to talk to is about Boko Haram, and the missing girls. We will also discuss the War in Libya, and how American armaments may have fallen into the hands of the terrorist group. Finally, we will examine might happen to the girls, and the region, in the near future.
