Sixth anniversary of the bombing of the USS Cole

NEIN is reporting...
*12 October 2006: Six years ago today, seventeen American sailors died and another 39 were injured in an attack on the American guided missile destroyer, USS Cole, in Aden Harbor, off the coast of Yemen. As the ship was refueling, a small craft piloted by two al Qaeda terrorists and loaded with about 700 pounds of explosives approached the ship and detonated. The blast blew a 40-foot by 40 foot hole in the port side of the USS Cole. The bombing operation was orchestrated by Osama bin Laden and carried out by terrorists Ibrahim al-Thawr and Abdullah al-Misawa.

Bill Clinton did nothing.
