Welcome to the newest source for information on US defense and security involvement in Africa, America’s Codebook: Africa. Though America has a long standing history of engagement in Africa and this has significantly intensified since the events of September 11th, 2001, these activities remain largely obscure. Building on work begun elsewhere, this site will look to track US operations and engagement so that individuals can become more informed about what is being done and stay that way.
More than just a glossary and news aggregator, Codebook; Africa seeks to provide brief, but informative summaries of critical pieces of the puzzle, all gleaned through diligent research of open sources. What deep analysis Codebook: Africa seeks to do will be as objective as possible, leaving it to the informed reader to draw their own conclusions.
