New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 28, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas I Herald-Zeitung J Friday, June 28,1996 O 3 A outofbed By ANWAR FARUQI Associated Press Writer DHAHRAN, Saudi Arabia (AP)— American troops at a base in eastern Saudi Arabia devastated by a terrorist attack earlier this week were jolted from their beds today by a bomb threat that turned out to be a hoax. “We had a bomb threat. It was a phone call. We went on alert for about an hour and 45 minutes,” Senior Airman Paul Gritton said “Then we found everything to be clear.” He said U.S. Air Force personnel and allied British and French troops bunking in the compound were put on alert after the anonymous caller clanned there would be another explosion at the base, where a truck bombing Tuesday night killed 19 people, all of them Americans. The remains of the 19 Americans were flown Thursday to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware to be honored at a private ceremony with a 21-gun salute. The United States says 270 Americans were injured in the blast Saudi Arabia says more than 200 Saudi Arabian and Bangladeshi citizens were also injured. Meanwhile, two U.S. Air Force transport planes arrived in southwest Germany today with 43 Air Force personnel suffering from bums and broken bones from Tuesday’s Mast said Army Maj. Bruce Shearer. They were taken to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center and all listed in stable condition. Gritton, of Portage, Ind., said the call was made to the U.S Air Force Public Affairs Office at 4:45 a.m. today (9:45 p.m. EDT Thursday). Officers ordered troops to take cover in the centers of their buildings. Gritton would not say exactly what the caller said or in which language bespoke. “The only information we have been cleared to give is that there was a bomb threat,” Capt. Scott Vadnain later said. “We won’t be giving out any more information about this. It will just become part of the investigation,” said Vadnain, of Papillon, Neb. Hours after warning, American military personnel at the base said they ‘I got up and didnt know what was —■ because I irwniiw ■ —Airman 1st Class Patricia Goldman still did not know the reason for the pre-dawn alarm. Airman 1st Class Patricia Goldman said she was asleep when she heard through the alarm system orders to “Get out. Get out.” “I got up and I started screaming because I didn’t know what was happening,” said Goldman, of Princeton, NJ. The troops were told “to congregate in the centers of the buildings ... to take cover,” she said. “It was really scary, and I was just hoping it wouldn’t be another bomb.” In case of a bomb located outside a building, die safest location is die center of the structure, away from exterior walls. “The problem out here is that there are no shelters, no place to hide or take coyer,” Goldman said. “The scariest part is not knowing what’s happening. They haven't told us what this morning was all about.” Goldman said she had suffered minor cuts on her legs in Tuesday’s bombing. Saudi Arabia, a close American ally, has said little about the attack but posted a $2.7 million reward for information leading to die arrests of suspects. President Clinton, has vowed to bring to justice those responsible for the second lethal bombing of a U.S. military target in Saudi Arabia in seven months. Suspicion has focused on violent Muslim militants opposed to the presence of 5,000 U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia — but no proof has yet turned up. Today’s alert came as FBI investigators sent by President Clinton continued to search for clues into the truck bombing, which also wounded hundreds. “The FBI people were out all night at the site, working when it’s cooler,” said Gritton. “They’re going to be out there again today.” On Thursday, sweating FBI agents working in 100-degree heat plowed through mounds of concrete and twisted metal as front-end loaders continued to remove debris in an around-the-clock operation. The bombing wrecked an eight-sto-ry building inside die complex, which houses up to 2,000 American military personnel and an unknown number of British and French troops. The allied forces have a sizable presence in Dhahran to keep an eye on Iraq. They have been here since tire 1991 Gulf war that liberated Kuwait from Iraqi occupation. American officials have acknowledged that they still have no leads on who was behind the truck bombing and say they doubt several anonymous claims of responsibility. The FBI agents were to stay in Saudi Arabia for several weeks, but nd quick answers woe expected. It took Saudi authorities more than four months to arrest four men in connection with a Nov. 13 car bomb at a U.S.-run military training facihty in Riyadh: Five Americans and two Indians died inthatblast. . World, Nation Briefs Qarmnns debate need, ;elte of Holocaust Museum I BERLIN (AP) — Does Germany need a Holocaust Museum? A group of historians, writers and ; politicians who believe die answer is : yes have been working for years on I the concept.

Sen. Dennis DeConcini, D-Ariz., at that time the Senate Intelligence Committee chairman, lent his own security director to analyze the White House operation in the spring and summer of 1994 and to caution about the handling of classified information. “I think this issue needs to be put to rest and the best way to accomplish this is to ensure that the White House has safeguards in place to prevent a breach of security,” DeConcini wrote then-Deputy White House Chief of Staff Phil Lader in March 1994. Within three months, documents obtained by The Associated Press show, DeConcini’s staff had wrapped up a frank analysis of White House security matters and sent a letter with four recommendations directly to President Clinton. .....I Court not as conservative as some had hoped WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court, completing its 10th term under Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist, has moved constitutional law to tire right but not as for as he and other conservatives might have hoped.

Walnut St. New Braunfels, TX 78130 (210) 625-9770 always prevail, and the court actually has made conservatives wince on numerous occasions. There can be no question that the highest court’s pronouncements on religion, crime, the death penalty, affirmative action and abortion have become more conservative. But affirmative action lives on, abortion remains a constitutional right and government-sponsored school prayer still is banned. Nevertheless, some legal experts believe the last decade has brought about what University of Southern California law professor Erwin Chemerinsky calls “a conservative revolution in constitutional law.” Dote bucks away form comment on tobacco WASHINGTON (AP) — Hoping to make the tobacco issue go away, Bob Dole told one of his sharpest critics that he’s no medical expert when he declares that smoking is not necessarily addictive. But Dole still insists that from his personal observations, tobacco may or may not be addictive. That’s what got Dole in trouble with Dr. C. Everett Koop, who served as surgeon general under President Reagan. Koop said Dole’s remarks “either exposed his abysmal lack of knowledge of nicotine addiction or his blind support of the tobacco industry.” In a letter to Koop dated Thursday, I' ■Si AAAGCESa ■ CUSTOM COMPUTERS ■ if sates, parts and serviceI Conditional Lifetime warranty on all hill lyitemc.
