Smithsonian published in its January/February issue an article titled “The Legacy of Black Hawk Down” by Mark Bowden, the author of the book Black Hawk Down.

Bowden argues that most of the money now being spent by the United States on special forces and drones in an effort to kill members of al-Shabaab could be spent more effectively on rebuilding Somalia and paying salaries of the Somali National Army.
