History: 10 years ago today, al-Qaeda attacks American embassies in Kenya, Tanzania

On the morning of August 7, the bomb-laden trucks drove into the [U.S.] embassies roughly five minutes apart-about 10:35 A.M. in Nairobi and 10:39 A.M. in Dar es Salaam. Shortly afterward, a phone call was placed from Baku to London. The previously prepared messages were then faxed to London.

The attack on the U.S. embassy in Nairobi destroyed the embassy and killed 12 Americans and 201 others, almost all Kenyans. About 5,000 people were injured. The attack on the U.S. embassy in Dar es Salaam killed 11 more people, none of them Americans. Read it all – from GlobalSecurity.org

More insight from an Kenyan American of Luo descent aka baldilocks.

Kenya’s Prime Minister Raul Odinga, for whom Barack Obama campaigned and claims to be a cousin, and who also led a terror spree of his own against opposing tribes when he was not elected continues to ignore the obvious and obfuscate the truth. Of course it all makes sense in the context that Odinga signed a memorandum of understanding promising to usher in sharia law.

“Let us dispel the notion that terrorism is in the name of Islam. Islam is a religion of peace and the most inclusive faith. We are not targeting Muslims in the fight against terrorism because we believe Muslims love peace and the religion derives its name from the word peace…”

Inclusive of terrorists…but anyway, who are you targeting then Raul?
