Al-Shabaab’s Media Insurgency, 2006-2016 (David Shinn)

David H. Shinn, a former U.S. ambassador to Ethiopia and Burkina Faso, writes about HSI’s report on Al-Shabaab media: “This excellent report examines the history and evolution of al-Shabaab’s media operations capabilities and narrative messaging with particular attention to its strategic use and position within the insurgents’ broader strategy of territorial control, survival, and rule in light of shifts on the ground inside Somalia”.
