Erin Burnett, ex-cnbc reporter, now cnn reporter, has done a series on Mali(click link below to view)...Mali is getting a lot of media attention lately, due to the Al-Qaeda strong-hold in the north...I believe a stop will be put to this growing threat sooner than later...I take this as a positive development and hope that things will turn around soon enough...
