The Clinton Administration, haunted by its nightmarish experience in Somalia, is trying to avoid the same political mistakes as it prepares for a massive military relief effort in Rwanda. U.S. officials said the lessons learned from the American mission in Somalia--which turned from an initial success into a textbook case of how not to run such an operation--account for much of the Administration's caution in sending troops into Kigali, Rwanda's capital.

U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Daniel Schroeder, a ramrod-straight soldier with a closely shaved head and a razor-sharp manner, paused only once in his rapid-fire answers to a gaggle of reporters at a recent briefing here. Schroeder, head of the task force running Operation Support Hope, the U.S. attempt to alleviate the suffering of more than 1 million Rwandan refugees, said he was considering using an American truck company to transport food and refugees in Rwanda.

Defense Secretary William J. Perry said Monday on his return from Africa that he is more hopeful about an international effort to save millions of Rwandan refugees and that only 3,000 U.S. troops will be needed to support the humanitarian operation. The troop estimate, given to reporters at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland, was lower than the 4,000 Americans that he earlier predicted would be stationed near Rwanda by the end of this week.

A week after President Clinton announced an "immediate and massive" increase in aid to alleviate the suffering of the 1.2 million Rwandan refugees here, deliveries of American relief supplies have barely begun and the operation appears marred by woeful confusion and delay. Despite a growing buildup of supplies in distant depots, only a trickle of emergency aid sent under "Operation Support Hope" has reached the sick and exhausted refugees.

Defense Secretary William J. Perry said after an inspection here Sunday that U.S. soldiers may be deployed for "a year or longer" to help more than 1 million Rwandan refugees facing death and disease in nightmarish camps along the Zairian border. Perry said that the 1,000 Americans now deployed in Zaire, Rwanda, Kenya and Uganda as part of Operation Support Hope are on "a humanitarian mission" to alleviate the suffering of the refugees and to help them return home.
