Skip to comments.BLACK HAWK DOWN: Did mother of dead soldier protest Clinton?
Posted on 08/23/2005 11:01:04 AM PDT by 1Old Pro
RUSH was wondering where the Mom of Bill Clevland protested and how many hours of coverage she received by the anti-Clinton media?
Then there were the horrible images of a dead soldier being dragged through the streets. Wives and parents and siblings were examining newspaper photos and squinting at TV images, trying to determine who the soldier was. They finally recognized Bill Cleveland, one of the two crew chiefs on Durant's helicopter.

yeah antiwar protests in Serbia maybe
find later bump
Somalia bump for later
I recall that the father of one of the soldiers that was awarded the CMOH (posthumously) for the Mogadishu raid refused to shake Clinton's and also gave Clinton a piece of his mind. I think Rush was the one who broke that story. The MSM took a pass.
Clinton met with the families of Shughart and Gordon. One of their parents gave him an earful after the MOH ceremony.
UGH, I also don't recall the media saying we needed more troop in Somalia and trashing Les Aspin for not providing proper equipment.
The men the leftist did not lift a finger or rant in the streets. Code Pink was not there. It is about Bush and nothing more.
Yes, one of the fathers told him what for. Clinton was personally responsible for Mogodishu, because he extended the mission but refused to provide the armor that his commanders told him was necessary for such an extension. If the armor had been there, most of those troops would have been saved.
Was reading the book again for the umpteenth time last night. Brings chills and tears to think of what these guys went through.
SSG William D Cleveland Jr.
I am proud of my farther for what he did for are country.
form his son,
William d Cleveland III
and the top warlord in Somalia now is Adin's (help me out with the sp) son - and he was trained as an American marine. Yep.
The left doesn't give a damn about the body count - they just want to be in charge. Witness Bill Maher and Michael Moore's anti-American statments on the heels of 9/11...they want another terrorist attack to weaken the government of the USA so they can come in and take over the country (to wit: http://www.worldcantwait.org).
If the left gets arms in this country, we're no better off than Venezuela and Cuba.
