Disinformation on Mali

There is a tremendous amount of disinformation that is circulated in the mainstream/corporate media with regards to the current situation in Mali. The best example of this would be a recent interview that Brian Lehr did with Morehouse college professor Laura Seay discussing her recent article in Foreign Policy titled, “Mali is not a Stan.” Like everyone else in the mainstream/corporate Seay doesn’t think that France has any interest in the massive gold and uranium reserves, she in fact lies and says the reserves are small, and omits any discussion of AFRICOM, which with the help of Lehr leaves the citizen brainwashed into thinking that intervention and the West are forces for good in Africa. It’s alright to send in foreign troops to bomb and murder Malians because as Morehouse professor Laura Seay says in her article the government of Mali, headed by a military junta commanded by the American trained Capt. Amadou Sanogo, asked the French to come in and help. Why how else are we going to stop those Islamist terrorists from taking over? Unfortunately a lot of people will absorb this sort of drivel and really believe it. Don’t bother reading the article or listening to the interview unless you want to be propagandized to by a bunch of hacks.

For a brief but much more nuanced explanation for the current situation in Mali check out this segment from RT with F. William Engdahl, research associate at Global Research.

AFRICOM and President Obama’s horrifying vision for a militarized Africa is disturbing to say the least. AFRICOM is perhaps the most despicable Bush era foreign policy that Obama has embraced so enthusiastically. If you really are interested into exploring how far down the rabbit hole the situation in Mali goes I suggest the following article’s:
