This Day in the History of Sneak Attacks on America

On this day in 1999, in Port Angeles, WA, Ahmed Ressam was arrested after crossing the border at Port Angeles from Canada with over 150-pounds of bomb-making materials, including 200-pounds of urea, timing devices and a bottle of RDX (cyclotrimethylene trinitramine) in the trunk of his car. The arrest came solely because of the heads-up work of Diana Dean, despite the claims of a former President that he was responsible for foiling of the attack planned for Los Angeles Airport.
