Dem Leader: Global Warming & Darfur(?) Led to Black Hawk Down
More Reason Why Democrats Cannot Be Trusted With National Security… Or, Geography Classes–
Do you remember the tragic 1993 Battle of Mogadishu?
This was one of the conflicts where “liberal hawk” John Murtha called for defeat. It was also a decisive win for Al-Qaeda after Bill Clinton cut and run. This “victory” was later used by Osama bin Laden to mock America, the paper tiger, and rally his goons.
Well, leave it to a liberal representative from Massachusetts to rewrite the history and geography books on this one…
Top Democrat Rep. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) claims that climate change caused Black Hawk Down.
CNS News reported:
A top Democrat told high school students gathered at the U.S. Capitol Thursday that climate change caused Hurricane Katrina and the conflict in Darfur, which led to the “black hawk down” battle between U.S. troops and Somali rebels.

The Darfur crisis had nothing to do with the Battle of Mogadishu. The factional wars between warlords led to the destruction of the agriculture of Somalia, not the crisis in Darfur.
Does Rep. Markey even know where Mogadishu is?
