During the second presidential debate, on October 11, 2000, Republican nominee George Bush said: ” ‘[Somalia] started off as a humanitarian mission then changed into a nation-building mission, and that’s where the mission went wrong. …And so I don’t think our troops ought to be used for what’s called nation-building.’ ”
