817. 11/13/1995

“On November 13, 1995, just before the midday call to prayers in Riyadh [Saudi Arabia], a car bomb exploded outside the offices housing the Military Cooperation Program…The explosion killed seven people–five of them Americans–and wounded 60 others, among them several American advisers with Vinnell, the mysterious military consulting firm that trained the Saudi Arabian National Guard (SANG). …The bombing could not definitively be pinned on bin Laden, but his fingerprints were everywhere. …Bin Laden himself described the attack as ‘praiseworthy terrorism.’…knowingly or not, the bombers had attacked a company linked to George H.W. Bush and James Baker, who had sent the infidel Americans to Saudi Arabia in the first place.”

 – Craig Unger, House of Bush, House of Saud, Pages 171-172
