"The recent spate of brutal attacks in Nigeria by Boko Haram, a local terrorist group professing allegiance to Al Qaeda, has drawn attention to West Africa as the next regional battleground against violent global jihad. But the operative word here is local, not regional -- despite such worries in parts of Africa and the West." (01/12/12)
