FILE - In this March 27, 2012 file photo, soldiers disembark from a truck to secure the location as coup leader Capt. Amadou Haya Sanogo, unseen, arrives at his headquarters at Kati military base, just outside Bamako. The ease of the junta's takeover in March, just six weeks before a presidential election, shows how quickly the course of a nation in this part of the world can change, despite or even partly because of funding and training from the U.S. It also underscores how fragile democracies remain in Africa, and how the fate of an entire country can still be bent by the ambitions of a single man.
