Yours Truly at an orphanage in Baidoa, Somalia, in December of 1992. I was escorting Los Angeles and San Diego news media to cover the military relief efforts ongoing as part of Operation Restore Hope. I remember being filled with pride and optimism then, believing America was using our wealth and power to make a real impact on the lives of these suffering people. President Clinton's cowardly retreat from Somalia replaced those hopeful feelings with shame and regret. Thanks to our playboy-in-chief, we gave these children (and other Somalis) hope only to let them down in the end. This is the Clinton Legacy.
