Somalia is no longer a failed state but a recovering fragile country, the top U.N. official for war-torn Somalia has said.

"The country is the past two-three years has come together quite significantly. It is both politically stable and developed as well," he said.
Well, not all missions accomplished.
I'm not popping the champagne yet.

In a recap of “significant success[es]” in 2015, State Department spokesman John Kirby lists “Bringing Peace, Security to Syria.” Talk about a whopper. Even the obnoxious team of Jan Psaki and Marie Harf might have shied away from a claim this preposterous.
What happened to Kirby?
