On this day in 2000, yet another major Al Qaeda terrorist attack was ignored by Bill Clinton when the U.S.S. Cole was bombed in the Port of Aden:
On 12 October 2000, while under the command of Commander Kirk Lippold, the Cole was attacked from a small boat by Al-Qaida suicide bombers, while she was harbored in the Yemeni port of Aden. Seventeen sailors were killed and 39 were injured. The U.S. government offered a reward of up to US $5 million for information leading to the arrest or conviction of those persons who committed or aided in the attack on Cole.

Yeah, the law enforcement tactics like offering rewards have always been so effective.

Five years later a nightclub was bombed in Bali killing hundreds.
