On August 5, 1998, a month after the arrest and torture of Muslim militants in Albania, Egyptian Islamic Jihad leader Ayman al-Zawahiri “warned that America’s ‘message has been received and that the response…is being prepared.’ Two days later, the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were blown up, killing 224 people.”
