897. 6/25/1996

Following the Khobar Towers attack in Saudi Arabia on June 25, 1996, President Bill Clinton said: ” ‘The cowards who committed this murderous act must not go unpunished. Let me say again: we will pursue this, America takes care of our own. Those who did it must not go unpunished.’ The next day, the president said, ‘We will not rest in our efforts to find who is responsible for this outrage, to pursue them and punish them.’ ”
