State Department: On Aug. 7, 1998, two truck-bomb explosions destroyed the U.S. embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, leaving 257 dead and injuring more than 5,000 people.

On Aug. 14, 1998, President Clinton signed into law the “Iraqi Breach of International Obligations,” which had passed the Senate unanimously and the House 407-6. The law reads in part:

“Resolved… [t]hat the Government of Iraq is in material and unacceptable breach of its international obligations, and therefore the President is urged to take appropriate action, in accordance with the Constitution and relevant laws of the United States, to bring Iraq into compliance with its international obligations.”
