Ethiopian AMISOM Membership Scrutinized

The Voice of America's Joe DeCapua asked me on 22 January to comment on the decision by Ethiopia to join the AMISOM force in Somalia.  I responded that it may have the effect of serving as a recruiting tool for al-Shabaab.  If the troops are expected to operate beyond the Ethiopia/Somalia border region, it will be of particular concern.  You can hear a longer response on my five minute audio interview.

Ogaden Today has already translated my remarks in Somali and published them online.
