Why American Troops are in Niger

Oct 20, 2017

Since four American Green Berets were killed in the African County of Niger many Americans are wondering why we have troops there. The answer is relatively simple, there are Islamic terrorists there. As ISIS was expanding it Caliphate it had most of its resources concentrated in countries like Libya, Syria, and Iraq, but it also has affiliated groups in other countries.

Now that the terrorist group is losing its conquered territories many of its fighters are escaping to countries like Niger. This was not unexpected, and American troops have been deployed for several years to train the armies of countries where Islamic terrorism exists and is in danger of growing.
