June 25, 1996: Khobar Towers Are Bombed; Culprit Is Unclear      Complete 911 Timeline

      
Destruction at the Khobar Towers, Dhahran, Saudi Arabia.
Explosions destroy the Khobar Towers in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, killing 19 American soldiers and wounding 500. [CNN, 6/26/96] Saudi officials later interrogate the suspects, declare them guilty, and execute them—without letting the FBI talk to them. [Irish Times, 11/19/01; PBS Frontline, 2001] Saudis blame Hezbollah, the Iranian-influenced group, but US investigators still believe bin Laden was somehow involved. [Seattle Times, 10/29/01] Bin Laden admits instigating the attacks in a 1998 interview. [Miami Herald, 9/24/01] Ironically, the bin Laden family is later awarded the contract to rebuild the installation. [New Yorker, 11/5/01] In 1997, Canada catches one of the Khobar Tower attackers and extradites him to the US. However, in 1999, he is shipped back to Saudi Arabia before he can reveal what he knows about al-Qaeda and the Saudis. One anonymous insider calls it, “President Clinton's parting kiss to the Saudis.” [Palast, 2002, pp 102] In June 2001, a US grand jury will indict 13 Saudis for the bombing. According to the indictment, Iran and Hezbollah were also involved in the attack. [9/11 Congressional Inquiry, 7/24/03 (B)]
People and organizations involved: William Jefferson ("Bill") Clinton, Hezbollah, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda
