Hoyer Statement on the 20th Anniversary of the Bombings at U.S. Embassies in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) released the following statement today on the anniversary of the bombings of the U.S. embassies in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam, which occurred on August 7, 1998:   

“Today, we mark twenty years since bombings at the U.S. embassies in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam took the lives of twelve Americans and more than 200 local residents.  Orchestrated by Al-Qaeda, these attacks were a prelude to September 11, 2001, whose reverberations were felt across our country, around the world, and throughout the community of diplomats and their families who serve our nation abroad.  Two families from Maryland lost loved ones in these attacks, mourning career diplomat Julian L. Bartley Sr., his son and Nairobi embassy intern Julian ‘Jay’ Bartley Jr., and Nairobi embassy liaison officer Jean Dalizu.  Our nation continues to remember them and all those lost in these attacks. 

“On this somber anniversary, let us pay tribute to all who serve our nation as diplomats overseas, often amid conflict and danger, and the families who travel with them and make enormous sacrifices to ensure that our country is represented abroad and can remain safe at home.  Congress must keep faith with those who perform this work and who serve us so ably in the practice of American diplomacy."
