    These airmen that died were a direct result of Clinton's decisions. I knew people that were stationed at this base before this attack happened. The commander of the base knew of the vulnerability of the base and was trying to do something about it. The barracks were literaly on the outside edge of the "base" and the only thing that divided the building from the street open to the public was a chain link fence. The commander would tell the incoming personnel that he has been asking Washington to erect concrete barriers along that fence. But the Clinton wisdom was that such barriers would only "alienate" the local people.

    But did the Clinton administration take the resposibility for this fuck up? No, the commander took the blame and was essentially forced to retire in disgrace as a scapegoat.



    :fu2: Clinton

    Reported Arrest in Khobar Towers Bombing Renews Focus on Iran’s Anti-U.S. Terrorism
    August 27, 2015 – The reported arrest of the key suspect in the 1996 bombing of the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, in which 19 U.S. military personnel were killed, will renew attention on Iran’s suspected role in the attack, at a time when the Obama administration is seeking congressional and public support for its nuclear agreement with Tehran.
