John Murtha Opposed Another Recent Military Engagement.

So John Murtha thought Somalia was a mistake too. Was he the reason we "cut and run" there?

Excerpt from the December 3, 1992 Somalia News Update

"My feeling is it's a mistake with the present conditions as
they are," said Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., chairman of the House
Appropriations subcommittee on defense.
Murtha, at a news conference, said there is "no clear-cut
mission. The rules of engagement are not clear, and we have no
purpose in being there. It's not in our national interest. And for
those reasons I, at this point, oppose deploying troops to Somalia as
bad as the situation is."
