Summary In the first U.S. covert mission to overthrow a foreign nation, President Jefferson dispatched an unlikely diplomat, forty-year-old William Eaton, to Tripoli to free three hundred American hostages. Eaton achieved a remarkable victory on "the shores of Tripoli," but for him, the aftermath was not so sweet.
