Was the recent spate of military coups in Africa done so with either the overt or covert support of the USA? [closed]
The Intercept has reported that since 2008, at least eight successful military coups have occurred in Africa led by US trained soldiers: Guinea, Mauritanea and the Gambia, and also three times each in Burkina Faso and Mali.
Three of these countries have been suspended by the African Union: Burkina Faso, Guinea and Mali with Ghana's president, Nana Akufo-Addo saying:
The resurgance of coup d'etats in our region is in direct violation of our democratic tenets and represents a direct threat to peace, security and stability in West Africa.
Q. Did these coups occur with the direct assistance of the USA, whether overt or covert?
