Insider Threat: The Mogadishu Diaries 1992-1993

E. Clay

Fantasy / Paranormal

This story is a fictional account of the mission and execution of the neutralization of a sensitive intelligence collaborator that potentially endangered the lives and welfare of the men and women who supported Operation Restore Hope, a UN Humanitarian mission that erupted into violence in 1993. The US Marine Corps sent the 6th Counterintelligence Team to disrupt the threat.Somali Warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid ruled the streets of Mogadishu with an uncanny elusiveness that frustrated US/UN coalition strategists. Our mission was to quell intra-Clan violence and secure major supply routes for aid. It was assessed that Aidid might be the beneficiary of an intelligence leak. Joint Task Force Headquarters responded with a clandestine Counterintelligence operation designed to identify and neutralize this “Insider Threat.” This classified operation was known as Operation Looking Glass. The Counterintelligence community pinned the success of this sensitive operation on the shoulders of one man. Political infighting would complicate the mission’s agenda, but not after a relentless pursuit to expose a collaborator., This novel was subjected to a Department of Defense pre-publication review on 8 January 2013.

The Mogadishu Diaries Bloodlines 1992-1993

The Mogadishu Diaries Bloodlines 1992-1993

E. Clay

Fantasy / Paranormal

Mogadishu Diaries Bloodlines is based on my personal experience as a US Marine peacekeeper during Operation Restore Hope from 9 December 1992 until 21 March 1993. One of my unit's most dangerous missions was the pursuit of a beloved and revered Somali warlord named Mohamed Farrah Aidid. This is my personal account...Those who survived the horrible battles of the American Civil War are talked about almost as much as the many thousands who did not. And what about those who should have fought, but didn't? Hardly anyone talks about them, or the many reasons they might have missed the opening volley.The Best Damned Squirrel Dog (Ever) tells one such story. Though the characters and location are fictional, the author's in-depth knowledge of local history brings the story to life and makes this a great read for anyone interested in love, pets, the 150th anniversary of the "great unpleasantness," or the war itself.
