at the end how the author made every possible excuse to keep Clinton and his cronies from any blame. He tries his hardest to blame G.W. Bush. I talked person-to-person to a BlackHawk Chief Warrant Officer who was DIRRECTLY involved with the battle. He blamed the SECDEF for not allowing heavy armor into the country. I talked to him about 3 months after the battle, well before the book was released.

I distinctly remember Boy President Clinton marching across the front lawn of the White House surrounded by the military in desert storm BDUs, taking credit for the successful conclusion of the Somali relief efforts, about a month PRIOR to the BHD/Ranger incident! If you wanted armor, at that time, you needed to go to Mt. Carmel, near Waco, Texas, at the Branch Davidians' Church (not 'compound'). Eric The(So,[b]That's[/b]WhereTheArmorWas!)Hun[>]:)]

Yes he did. The author tried to justify Aspins decision by saying that armor wasn't needed. If I recall correctly, It was an armored UN collumn that finaly rescued the pinned down soldiers. (edited for crappy syntax)
