Gearan Quoted on Recent Attack in Iraq

President Mark Gearan was quoted in the March 31 L.A. Times story “Video of Fallouja Scene Raises Questions.” The article, about the recent attack on four American contractors in Fallouja, compared the Fallouja attack to Black Hawk Down, in Somalia in 1993. Gearan remarked on President Bill Clinton's response to the Somalia attack.

“It was among the darkest days that the president had, because of the sense of responsibility of having involved U.S. forces and the horror of what happened,” said Gearan “Making the case for the involvement was the challenge President Clinton had, and it was not met.”
