“U.S. plans border security program in Nigeria”

[USA Today 9/5/14]  “A top U.S. official for Africa said the United States is preparing to launch a ‘major’ border security program for Nigeria and its neighbors to combat the increasing number and scope of attacks by Islamic extremists”.

So it turns out that countries bordering Nigeria are having problems with the Islamic extremist group Boko Haram. ISIS, Hamas, Boko Haram, Al Qaeda, al-Shabaab, wherever you have Muslims, you seem to have Islamic extremists.

But the irony of the headline is what caught my eye. The U.S. is coming up with a “border security program” for another country. Why don’t they come up with a border security program for America? Besides that, what expertise could we possibly have to share with Nigeria? Our border has been a global joke for over 40 years.
