Compelling information that Islamic terrorist Osama bin Laden planned additional terror attacks against Americans and others is “presumed to include Israeli targets,” according to a Clinton administration official. U.S. forces attacked terrorist targets in Afghanistan and Sudan, President Clinton announced shortly before cutting short his vacation to return to Washington. A Saudi living in Afghanistan, bin Laden is suspected of being behind the terrorist bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania earlier this month.
