Description

These two reports by Ike Seamans were in August 1983. They proved to be ominous warnings that the U.S. Marines, part of the International Peace Keeping Force, were in danger from warring sects in the civil war because the Reagan Administration permitted them to fight in support of the Lebanese government. Anti-government factions warned this would not be tolerated. Two months later, the Marines' barracks in Beirut was car bombed...241 Marines killed.
