“Two days later [August 9, 1998], a group calling itself the ‘Islamic Army for the Liberation of the Holy Places’ took credit for the bombing [of the U.S. embassies in Africa]. The name, with its echo of [World Trade Center bomber]  Ramzi Yousef’s ‘Fifth Battalion of the Liberation Army,’ was another reminder of how tightly woven this al Qaeda family of terrorists really was.”
