US Counterterrorism Strategy in Somalia

 The International Crisis Group just published a visual explanation titled "The U.S. Containment Strategy in Somalia."

The visual provides background for US counterterrorism efforts in Somalia and concludes that US strategy is to contain the al-Shabaab jihadist insurgency.  The US effort centers around the use of the Baledogle Air Base, which is illustrated with satellite pictures.
