ABSTRACT
The article looks at the war on terrorism. A spate of arrests of Islamic militants have made authorities worry that they have unearthed a large network of North African militants. Many of the militants are tied to the Salafist Group for Call and Combat. New groups have taken control of the al Qaeda terrorist movement. The International Crisis Group put out a report concluding that North Africa is not a hotbed of terrorist activity but that U.S. military aid programs risk inflaming anti-American sentiment.
