Veterans of the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu, which was commemorated in the 1999 book Black Hawk Down, slammed freshman representative Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) for accusing them of murdering "thousands" of Somalis.
More than 300 people died after twin bomb explosions in Mogadishu, an official said on Monday, as locals packed hospitals in search of friends and relatives caught up in Somalia's deadliest attack in a decade.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. military carried out a missile strike in Somalia on Sunday targeting a suspected militant leader with ties to al Qaeda and al Shabaab, a U.S. military official told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity.
The Obama administration failed to act against Libyan Islamists who attacked the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi last year during the capture last weekend of a senior al Qaeda terrorist in Tripoli according to U.S. officials.
Meanwhile, the Somali terrorist group al Shabaab is “gripped with fear” following the unsuccessful covert U.S. military strike against one of its leaders.
