Now before all of you arrogant, ignorant, Liberal Douchebags start trolling me and informing me that Al Qaeda and ISIS are not allies, let me remind you that this is a prediction, and that predictions are falsified in the future not by the force of your will or by what has been true in the past. Furthermore, Boko Haram was part of Al-Qaeda and if you think you know so much about stuff then explain this, idiot.
Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan claimed in May that Boko Haram was “an al-Qaeda operation”. The extent to which this is technically true depends on how broadly we define the al-Qaeda network – and it should be noted that Ayman al-Zawahiri has never even publicly referred to Boko Haram – but their ties to al-Qaeda and its affiliates are now so numerous that they are impossible to ignore.

The fact of the matter is that this is Africa not the Middle East. Al-Qaeda forces loyalty by threatening to kill defectors but they will have time and distance on their side, and as you can see the rules that apply in the Middle East don’t necessarily apply in Africa.
I also suspect that the backing behind ISIS goes much farther and much deeper than everybody suspects. They are already developing surface to air missiles. Somebody is helping them.
Two inmates from the Guantanamo Bay military prison in Cuba have been transferred to Ghana for resettlement, U.S. Defense Department officials said Wednesday.
The two Yemen-born men, Mahmoud Omar Mohammed Bin Atef and Khalid Mohammed Salih al-Dhuby, had been held as enemy combatants, without charge, for nearly 14 years.
Following a comprehensive review of their cases, it was determined the two inmates do not pose a security threat, Pentagon officials said.
“The United States is grateful to the government of Ghana for its humanitarian gesture and willingness to support ongoing efforts to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility,” said Pentagon spokesman Gary Ross. source
