Shadow War Steps Into the Light

Richard Engel and Robert Windrem, writing for NBCNews:

“France will send about 1,000 troops and armored vehicles to Mali over the next few days with the support of U.S military and intelligence operations,  upping the ante in its effort to turn back Islamic militants threatening to topple the north African nation’s government, U.S. national security officials told NBC News on Monday.”

Watch this. Watch the militant Islamic world unite behind it. Watch this spin out of control.
