In his public testimony on February 7, 2001, CIA Director George Tenet said: ” ‘Usama bin Ladin and his global network of lieutenants and associates remain the most immediate and serious threat [to U.S. security]. Since 1998, Bin Ladin has declared all US citizens legitimate targets of attack. As shown by the bombing of our Embassies in Africa in 1998 and his Millennium plots past year, he is capable of planning multiple attacks with little or no warning.’ ”
