Jamal al-Badawi, an al-Qaida commander, was on the FBI’s most wanted list for his part in the attack. Seventeen American sailors died in the bombing, which came when two suicide attackers in a small boat detonated explosives as the Navy destroyer was refueling in Yemen’s Aden harbor. The blast left a gaping hole in the side of the Cole. Nearly 40 others were injured in the attack.

Our work against al Qaeda continues. We will never stop in our fight against Radical Islamic Terrorism!”
