Learning From Past Mistakes

Apparently, officials in the American government think that the covert C.I.A. operations in Somalia failed.

If only there had been another failed state from which they could have learned this lesson, maybe a Muslim nation in which the C.I.A. supported warlords who fought one another for the support of a population that still had strong tribal ties. But where on earth would you find another place like that?
