Blowback 2: The Sequel

The United States is backing warlords in Somalia. Anyone else wonder if this is a bad idea?

The Washington Post featured this story on page 1. The New York Times ran it on page A9, burying this lead in the middle of the story. Ah, yes, the Grey Lady drops a big one.

Apologies for the fact that the link is only fully visible to NYT Select subscribers. I can vouch for where the story appeared, because my jaw dropped when I read it, wondering why it wasn't on the front page. The next day I read the Post because I was in DC, and that's where I saw the full story in its proper place.
