This is the final episode of a three-part series looking at the past, present, and future of the so-called “war on terror”. 

For an idea of the next phase of the US’s “war on terror”, we look to East Africa, where a different version of the war has been unfolding for the past 20 years. American soldiers may not patrolling the streets of Kenya, but the US’s counterterrorism presence is very much there.
