Americin MogadishuStreaming Video - 2006
In 1993, Mohammed Aideed's militia triumphantly paraded U.S. corpses through the streets of Mogadishu. In stunning irony, Mohammed's son, Hussein, though not a representative of Somalia's official government, now offers the U.S. strategic bases. This program presents a candid interview with Somalia's de facto leader, a warlord with unusual credentials: American citizen, former Marine, and member of the Republican Party. A succinct overview of the country's political situation since UN intervention in the early 1990s is crosscut with Aideed's remarks.
