A Decade of US Special Ops in the Sahel-Maghreb | @BooMan on Feb 7, 2013 |

How an interview with Vicki Huddleston led me to articles with a black view of the Islamic terror groups in Sahel-Maghreb and US influence during the last decade. In the shadow of black ops, false flag operations, proxy war and earth's resources in Africa. Belmokhtar was in JSoc's crosshairs, a decision was made not to pull the trigger. A mistake with consequences similar to the misses of taking out Osama Bin Laden in the 1990s? Mokhtar Belmokhtar was the mastermind of the recent Algerian hostage taking at In Amenas gas plant resulting in a massacre of foreign workers.

Jihadist, an Afghan veteran fighting the Soviets, supported and trained  by the CIA in the AfPak region, with funds from Saudi Arabia ... fighting America's 🇺🇸 proxy war.

Mokhtar Belmokhtar, 40, who lost an eye while fighting in Afghanistan in the 1990s, claimed responsibility for the seizure of dozens of foreign hostages at the In Amenas gas plant in Algeria in January in which more than 60 people were killed.

That attack put Algeria back on the map of global jihad, 20 years after its civil war, a bloody Islamist struggle for power. It also burnished Belmokhtar's jihadi credentials by showing that al Qaeda remained a potent threat to Western interests despite U.S. forces killing Osama bin Laden in Pakistan in 2011.
