I sat down with former First Lady Laura Bush last week for an exclusive interview during the US Africa Summit. We discussed a variety of issues, including terrorism as it relates to Africa and the missing Nigerian girls. On the issue of terror, Mrs. Bush said, “Sadly, I think this is the big problem of our time.”
Mrs. Bush is known as an educator, woman’s advocate and a supporter of humanitarian efforts in Africa and she contends, “One of the very most important things…is to make sure people are educated to do everything we can to make sure people are educated. Those terrorist aren’t educated. They haven’t been educated in a way, in anyway to show that they can live in a human society and respect life like we want all Americans to do and all people to do.

On the missing Nigerian school girls, the search continues. Nigeria is leading the investigation and search efforts. Countries like Israel, France, and the United States are working with the Nigerian government to locate the hundreds of girls kidnapped from their school house in April. A large number of the girls are believed to be alive. When it comes to the search efforts, sources close to the investigation say they have spotted large numbers of people on radar from time to time but they disappear as soon as they are spotted.
