This Day in the History of Letting War Be Waged Against Us Unfought


On this day in 1996, either al Qaeda or Hezbollah Al-Hejaz operatives, probably the former, blew up a tanker truck, killing 19 U.S. military personnel at the Khobar Towers, in Saudi Arabia. The Clinton Administration did squat in response. Typical.

Wasn't this the case in which the Saudis allowed us to do nothing?

I'm not complaining that we didn't get to prosecute the bombers, T.
 
Hezbollah? In Saudi Arabia? What?
 
At first we thought it was them then we decided it was AQ. Who knows for sure?
 
Why would anyone think Hezbollah was operating in S.A.? That doesn't even make sense.
 
Oh, Ansar Khat al-Imam. Got it. O.K.
