Kenya-Tanzania Embassies Bombing Anniversary

It has been 11 years and, as of yet, justice is not done.

But it will be. Their names are known. There are 21 names on the list. Wadih El-Hage, Khalfan Khamis Mohamed, Mohamed Rashed Daoud Al-Owhali, and Mohamed Sadeek Odeh are all in custody, serving Life-Without-the-Possiblity-of-Parole. Four others have been killed, and one other died in British prison last year. The U.K. holds two more in custody, and there are two more under Enemy Combatant detention by the U.S. military. The rest (8) are believed to be still at large.

Here's the open indictment: U. S. of A. vs. Usama Bin Laden, et al., S(9) 98 Cr. 1023 (LBS).

Maybe this time next year, the number outstanding will be lower... Here's hoping for zero.


Last year's 10th Anniversary Memorial, Some Anniversaries are of bad things...

Note: Some sources cite Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah as being targeted in the naval gunfire following up the Bargal Raid in Somalia, 2007. That may be so, but there is *no open confirmation* that he caught a 5"/62 shell or met an untimely accident. I'll believe he is dead when I see the body.
