International Terrorism Expert Available To Discuss Bombings in Kenya, Tanzania

P. Edward Haley, an expert in state-sponsored terrorism and a former foreign policy aide to members of Congress and the U.S. Senate, is available to discuss today's U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania.

"These bombings were highly technical and coordinated, which suggests that this terrible tragedy is an act of state-sponsored terrorism," says Haley. "The State Department must immediately safeguard all U.S. embassies and raise the state of alert. We need to find out who did this and punish them."

Professor Haley can discuss possible groups or nations responsible for committing these acts of terrorism and the motivation behind them, as well as measures the U.S. must take to reduce the risk of terrorism. He can be reached by calling (909) 621-3983 or (909) 607-3803.

Haley teaches government and international relations at Claremont McKenna College. He is the author of several books examining US foreign policy and responses to terrorism, including Qaddafi & the United States since 1969 and Overtaken by Events: George Bush and the World. I
