Research from Nick Turse:
U.S. Military Says It Has a “Light Footprint” in Africa.
These Documents Show a Vast Network of Bases.
At least 34 U.S. military bases are scattered across Africa, with high concentrations in the north, west, and Horn of Africa.
David Vine: The United States of War
Turse found that the military had at least thirty-four base sites in Africa. In addition to Camp Lemmonier, a Pentagon list mentioned twelve “cooperative security locations”, twenty “contingency locations”, and another major “forward operating site” on Ascension Island, off Africa’s west coast. There are likely more bases. In 2017 a military spokesperson said there were forty-six outposts across the continent, including fifteen “enduring locations”.
The lack of transparency and pattern of misleading statements in the Africa Command and the Pentagon leave considerable uncertainty about the U.S. presence. But it’s clear the expansion of bases has been rapid and broad. It’s easier to list the African countries that have not had a U.S. presence: they number fewer than fifteen of the fifty-four.
