Last year, we examined the allegation that the CIA had established links with the African Muslim terror group Boko Haram. Why? Because Nigeria has oil and seeks closer ties to Russia and China -- particularly China, which gives Nigeria technical know-how in exchange for much-needed oil. America might be better served if the oil-rich African nation became a failed state, rather than a member of the BRICS alliance.
This Global Research analysis
avers that Boko Haram receives funding from jihadist groups quietly (very
quietly) linked to American intelligence. I'm not really convinced by this article, but I still consider it worthy of attention.
The same cyber-journal has published a new article by one Julie Lévesque, who carries the argument further.
In May 2014, African Renaissance News published an in-depth report on Boko Haram, wondering whether it could be another CIA covert operation to take control of Nigeria:
[T]he greatest prize for AFRICOM and its goal to plant a PAX AMERICANA in Africa would be when it succeeds in the most strategic African country, NIGERIA. This is where the raging issue of BOKO HARAM and the widely reported prediction by the United States Intelligence Council on the disintegration of Nigeria by 2015 comes into perspective…(Atheling P Reginald Mavengira, “Humanitarian Intervention” in Nigeria: Is the Boko Haram Insurgency Another CIA Covert Operation? Wikileaks, African Renaissance News, May 08, 2014)
A Nigerian group called the Greenwhite Coalition has concluded that Boko Haram has a definitely "spooky" odor. Naomi Wolf came to a similar conclusion.
