In Somalia… Bin Laden’s terrorist network offered uneducated, orphaned Somalis a home, teaching them to hate the United States.” Then they bombed the American Embassy. Until Congressional action providing international assistance to stem AIDS is effective, and until other programs bring the United States into better harmony with the Third World nations, the seeds of terrorism may continue to be sown.
