Bye-Bye AFRICOM?

Well this doesn’t sound good:

According to Inside Defense (subscription required), House Appropriations wants to cut AFRICOM’s budget from the request $390 million to just $80 million. This just weeks before the command was supposed to go fully operational. “The committee believes that traditional U.S. military operations are not an appropriate response to most or many of the challenges facing Africa,” a committee report states.

Dang.
