Summary
In The Dark Sahara Jeremy Keenan exposed the collusion between the U.S. and Algeria in fabricating false flag terrorism to justify the launch of a new Saharan front in Washington's War on Terror. In this new book, he reveals how the Pentagon's designation of the region as a Terror Zone has destroyed the lives and livelihoods of thousands of innocent people. Beginning in 2004, with what local people called the U.S. invasion of the Sahel, The Dying Sahara shows how repressive, authoritarian regimes, cashing in on US terrorism rents, provoked Tuareg rebellions in both Niger and Mali. Multinationals expropriated Tuareg lands for uranium and puppeteers in Washington and Algiers pulled the strings of a new, narco-trafficking Al Qaeda. Keenan's chillingly detailed research shows that the U.S. and its new combatant African command (AFRICOM), far from bringing security, peace, and development, have created a self-fulfilling prophecy of terror and instability in a region the size of western Europe.--
