Background on Sanogo's role in current Situation in Mali (six years in United States)

. . .The poorly equipped Malian military, charged with suppressing the rebellion, suffered significant losses at the hands of the MNLA . . . Such events, compiled with pre-existing frustrations, triggered a military coup in March 2012 led by low-ranking officer Captain Amadou Haya Sanogo.

The collapse of President ATT's democratically elected government quickly created the very situation that the Malian military had attempted to prevent. By April, the secular MNLA aligned itself with the Islamist militant group Ansar Dine and declared their captured territory, “Azawad,” to be an independent state. . .

After President ATT left for exile, ECOWAS denounced the military coup, closed borders, imposed sanctions, and pressured (Sanogo) to establish a transitional government. Reluctantly, the junta transferred power to Speaker of the National Assembly Dioncounda Traoré.

However, upon coming to power, the interim government was unable to restore order. . . A mob attacked and injured Traoré outside of his residence. Traoré was flown to France for treatment and did not return to Bamako until the end of July. (Mob of Sanogo supporters)

Furthermore, despite being sent back to their barracks, the military (Sanogo) continues to hinder progress by attempting to insert itself into government.
