  • 7 AUGUST 1998

    Today, 7 August, is the sixteenth anniversary of the bombings of the United States Embassies in Dar es-Salam, Tanzania and Nairobi, Kenya. The cost included over 220 dead and more than 4,000 wounded. Twelve American USG employees and family members were among the dead as were 32 Kenyan and 8 Tanzanian USG FSN employees. Unfortunately, our national media has, as far as I am aware, chosen to not note this day and its message as a precursor of what would happen three years, one month and four days later. I strongly disagree with their silence and suggest that prayers and remembrance be part of your day.
