Terrorist Attack Against United States Military Forces in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia: Committee on National Security, House of Representatives, One Hundred Fourth Congress, Second Session, Hearing Held September 18, 1996 (Classic Reprint) by United States Committee on Nat Security (Paperback / softback, 2016)
Excerpt from Terrorist Attack Against United States Military Forces in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia: Committee on National Security, House of Representatives, One Hundred Fourth Congress, Second Session, Hearing Held September 18, 1996 While the committee endorsed legislation last week horing the victims, it is equally important that we confront the many issues raised by this unfortunate tragedy. Since June, both this committee and the dod task force led by Retired Gen. Wayne Downing, one of our witnesses here today, have investigated the circumstances surrounding the bombing. The conclusions of these reports are strikingly similar. Both iden tify significant failures of intelligence. While terrorist organizations can be difficult targets for intelligence gathering, the inability of the Department of Defense to fully appreciate the changing threats to our troops deployed in Saudi Arabia is disturbing. Even after the first bombing in the Saudi capital of Riyadh in November 1995, for mal threat assessments apparently never credited potential future threats with capabilities beyond those already demonstrated.
