Remembering the U.S.S. Cole

8 years ago, today, the U.S.S. Cole was attacked in the port of Aden, Yemen. Scott writes up an excellent post on accountability, and Gary Swenchonis, a father of one of the 17 sailors killed, posts a letter.

Thank you, Word. I've been trying mightily to block out the news today and Don't even know if the press is acknowledging it. We need these benchmark days remembered in this country.

Thanks for the reminder. Sadly the US' record on responding to terrorists attacks is actually quite embarassing.
