Tip of the Day: Do You Remember the Attack on the Khobar Towers?

Although I majored in law enforcement for my B.S. and justice studies for my M.S. at The American University in Washington, DC, I have always loved history, largely because it offers us the option to thoroughly study the past, and hopefully not repeat valuable and timeless lessons, yet it rarely seems to not be the human DNA for us to learn from history. 

A case in point is the June 25, 1996 truck-bomb attack on the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia.

Although the attack occurred 18 years ago, it killed 19 US citizens and injured 498 others of various nationalities! 

Today's message, one of many to follow, is to provide our readers Wikipedia's analysis of this terrorist attack in the hope that it can be a learning opportunity of what NOT to do in the future
