ABSTRACT
The article reports on U.S. plans for a new strategic command to take the War on Terror to the Horn of Africa. "Africom" is designed to integrate existing diplomatic, economic, and humanitarian initiatives in Africa and bring more attention to African intelligence-gathering operations. Critics say the move is more U.S. imperial overreach.
