THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Vice President
STATEMENT OF THE VICE PRESIDENT ON THE BOMBINGS OF U.S. EMBASSIES IN AFRICA
I would like to extend my deepest and most heartfelt sympathy to the families, friends and fellow citizens of all those killed or injured in the tragic bombings this morning at the American Embassies in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam.
Hundreds of innocent people -- Kenyans, Tanzanians, Americans, and others -- now must live the rest of their lives missing and mourning loved ones lost in today's terror. That is tragic and senseless. No honest cause can ever be advanced by terrorist violence.
Let no one doubt that the United States will do whatever is necessary to pursue the perpetrators of this evil and cowardly act, and bring them to justice.
