Then-CIA Director George Tenet described the al-Qa’ida bombing of American embassies on August 7, 1998: “The senior duty officer in the Agency’s Operation Center was on the line. ‘Bombs have just gone off at our embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania,’ he said. It quickly became clear that the embassy bombings were indeed the work of al-Qa’ida.”
