Your Tax Dollars at Work: Pentagon Prepares Invasion of MaliSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Thu, 12/06/2012 - 18:51
The Pentagon is currently organizing, training and arming an “international” military force to intervene in Mali next year, according to Pentagon and State Department officialdom.
The mercenary force will be led on the ground by Malian and West African troops. Details on the effort emerged in a Senate hearing Wednesday, according to the Washington Post.
Amanda J. Dory, the Pentagon’s deputy assistant secretary for Africa, said no U.S. troops would be involved in the intervention but said it is likely U.S. warplanes will be used to transport African troops and provide them with air cover.
