1,232. 8/7/1998

On August 7, 1998, “More than two years after the FBI finds evidence of an al Qaeda bombing plot, the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania are simultaneously bombed. The suicide truck [in Kenya] is located precisely where [FBI informant/al Qaeda operative] Ali Mohamed took the surveillance photos in 1993, and where bin Laden himself instructed the bomb to be placed. Two hundred and twenty-four people are killed and thousands injured. After the bombing, al Qaeda again demands the release of [Day of Terror bombing conspirator] blind Sheikh [Omar Abdel] Rahman.”
