Video: al-Qaida in North Africa and elsewhere
The Jamestown Institute held a conference on terrorism in December 2008, featuring a number of interesting scholars and US officials. Of particular interest to our readers will be the section on North Africa (AQIM, Algeria, Libyan Jihadism, the Pan-Sahel Initiative, etc), featuring, among others, Camille el-Tawil of al-Hayat, who has written a well-regarded book on the Algerian insurgency. Other interesting speakers include the CIA’s former bin Ladin guy, Michael Scheuer, and great Yemen scholar Gregory Johnsen.
