USS Cole attack
|Date||11:18 12 October 2000|
|Interest of||John O'Neill|
A small fiberglass boat carrying explosives and two suicide bombers approached the port side of the destroyer and detonated a bomb. Al Qaeda claimed responsibility.
United States Ambassador to Yemen Barbara Bodine obstructed the investigation by senior FBI counter-terrorist, John O'Neill, by denying him a visa to reenter the counry. O'Neill was later murdered on September 11, 2001.
Joe Vialls and several other commentators have suggested that attack was a false flag. Several writers have blamed Israel for the attack, some suggesting that the ship was hit by a missile from a submarine.
