The US press isn't reporting this but its a top story on BBC's website. The USAF has bombed the besieged Islamic Courts Militia units in southern Somlia in conjuction with Ethiopian and Somali government attacks. US officials are claiming that several Al Qaeda leaders are with the Islamist Somalis.
I don't know what it says about our country's mind set right now that direct military intevention in Somalia for the first time since the "blackhawk down" debacle isn't newsworthy.
