U.S. failures when it comes to the Gulf of Guinea are many: a failure to address the longstanding concerns of a government watchdog agency, a failure to effectively combat piracy despite an outlay of tens of millions of taxpayer dollars, and a failure to confront corrupt African leaders who enable piracy in the first place.

When I was 19 years old, both of my parents died in the same year; my mom of cancer and my dad in a car accident.

Henry Louis Gates
