“Egypt holds a significant number of radical Islamic zealots. (Ayman) Al-Zawahiri, one of the twin leaders of al-Qaida, is an Egyptian. There are radical elements in Egypt. They were not listed.

To counter tighter restrictions, Nwangwu points out that what he calls “evil geniuses” will continue to devise creative, innovative ways to get around the regulations. The Houston journalist says he supports international efforts to plug the loopholes. But also recalling that the September, 2001 attacks all originated within the United States, he contends that there is no substitute for stepped-up vigilance on all possible front.

USAfrica: Why Nigerian and Africa’s leaders are leading them nowhere. By Prof. Herbert Ekwe-Ekwe

In an interview with the Financial Times (London), Nigeria's leader retired Gen. Obasanjo could not but admit: "In three years I went round the world and did not get anything... I went round the countries in Europe, twice over, I went to Japan, to America, to Canada and got good words... but no action at all."
