Summary
Frontline investigates what went wrong with the peacekeeping mission in Mogadishu. On Oct. 3, 1993, elite units of the U.S. Army's Rangers and Delta Force were pinned down on the streets of Mogadishu by forces of Somali warlord, Mohammed Farah Aidid. Eighteen American soldiers died and seventy-five were wounded. The incident caused the U.S. to rethink its response to the world's humanitarian crises
