“Unfortunately, news reports after the East Africa [embassy] bombings [on August 7, 1998] revealed that NSA [National Security Agency] was listening to bin Laden’s phone conversations. Two months later, in October 1998, bin Laden ceased using the satellite telephone, depriving NSA and the CIA of their best source of information about what bin Laden and his cohorts were up to.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
