Later, Mr. Horton discussed blowback in Somalia against foreign intervention in Somali society perpetuating the horror in the Horn of Africa, giving a great summary of the recent history that led to the current state of affairs in the territory from the Bush Administration’s invasion to the Obama Administration shipping in arms, but blocking food entry.
