Niger and the Agadez Drone Base for targeted murder.

l searched SC to see if we had any Niger posts. One is a 31July 05 "Niger humanitary crisis". The other, is a 26Oct06 thread entitled "Niger Expels Arabs" [to go into Chad, now on the no-fly list] which unfortunately the thread had to be CLOSED because of an onslaught of racist comments. Yet, this OP shows the origin of Niger's "localist" lsIamic groups -ex Boko Haram from Nigerria.

After the four US service personnel were killed while on a capture/kill mission with national troops under Title 10 U.S.C., the news Thursday said there was a base in Niger.
