Via Diplopundit, here's a link to a short, sad article on a few of the victims of the 1998 Embassy bombings in Africa. These people gave their lives and the lives of their family members, all in service of our country. Eleven Americans died and many more were injured. Over 200 Tanzanians and Kenyans were also killed in the blast - many of them were also working to advance our diplomatic goals in their countries.
One of the alleged conspirators goes on trial this week.
