According to CNN on June 20, 2001, Osama bin Laden “released an al-Qaeda-made videotape that opened with shots of the USS Cole shortly after its attack by suicide bombers eight months earlier and included shots of terrorist training exercises. Bin Laden then declared: ‘To all the mujahideen, your brothers in Palestine are waiting for you; it’s time to penetrate America and Israel and hit them where it hurts most.’ “
