James Hentz is a Professor and Chair, Department of International Studies and Political Science, Virginia Military Institute, USA.
He is the editor-in-chief of the Taylor & Francis/Routledge quarterly journal “African Security”.

In the paper “National and Human Security in Sub-Sahara Africa”, J. Hentz notes:

U.S. engagement in Africa, such as it is, is driven by classical national security issues: access to strategic resources (oil), the global war against terrorism, and great power competition (China).
The better approach to Africa is to understand how its security issues transcend the false dichotomy between humanitarian and national security concerns
He is of the view that humanitarian exploit offers greater cause and urgency compared to realpolitik.
Does this mean that the United States is yet to show compassion adequate enough to help states in Africa?

James Hentz
He notes that human security is rarely the catalyst for intervention in Africa, atleast since Mogadishu in 1994.
Does this apply to the Libyan crises and the killing of Ghaddafi?
