Yesterday, I had the opportunity to talk with @rejectionking on @theLoopcast about the recent Shabaab attacks on the Westgate mall and what the implications are for Kenya and Somalia. This led to a more lengthy discussion on counterterrorism policy/strategy in the Horn which I sort of hijacked and took into a broader discussion – one many people may not care for. BLUF: I don’t think we can nor should try to solve all the world’s problems just to stop a few terrorists.
We concluded with some thoughts on Omar Hammami and his recent killing by al-Shabaab.
So with that, you can visit the Loopcast at this link if you are interested in listening or you can listen below on this embed.
