U.S. Hits the Horn


The A.P. is reporting that the US launched an airstrike today on a town in Somalia believed to be controlled by “islamic extremists.” The town, Dobley, is very close to the Kenyan border. Three missles were launched in an attempt to kill an al-Qaeda official “and his associates.” Somalia has not had a real national government since 1991, the closest things is the Transitional Federal Government, which is largely disregarded by Somalis.
