Congressman Ellison on Somalia

Congressman Keith Ellison, who represents Minnesota's fifth district in the House of Representatives, recently visited Mogadishu.  He is the first member of Congress to visit Somalia since the late Donald Payne visited four years ago. 

He contributed an article to the 8 April 2013 Minneapolis Star Tribune titled "In Somalia, A Window of Opportunity."  In the article, he stated: "We have our best opportunity in more than two decades to help stabilize Somalia and advance U.S. national security interests--but only if we act quickly."
