1. En cette période de commémoration, je voudrais parler de Rose, une grande dame pour laquelle je veux tenir nos mémoires en éveil. Sa vie a basculé entre le 22/04 et le 17/06/1994. Chaque jour jusqu'au 17/06, je vais vous parler de celle qu'elle fut #laVieDeRose #Rwanda #RwOT🇷🇼
2. Comme toute chronique, l’itinéraire de vie que je vais vous raconter est divisé en plusieurs périodes. L'histoire de Rose suit le calendrier de l'Histoire de son pays natal, le Rwanda : avant 1959, entre 1959 et 1994, entre avril et juillet 1994 et après 1994. #laVieDeRose

OTD 1998: nearly simultaneous bombs blew up at US embassies in Nairobi, Kenya & Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. 224 people were killed, including a CIA officer, & more than 4,500 people were wounded.

20th Anniversary of the US Embassy Bombings in East Africa:
10:30AM Nairobi, Kenya: first truck, loaded w 2,000 pounds of TNT, forced its way to back entrance of embassy. Despite a grenade & firearms attack, Kenyan guards & @USMC prevented access to building where it would have exploded in US Embassy basement.
Instead, terrorist detonated the bomb at a gate to the embassy. Explosion reduced much of the interior of the embassy to rubble. The secondary fragmentation from flying glass, internal concrete block walls, furniture, & fixtures caused most of the embassy casualties.

Today, we held our annual Memorial Ceremony to remember, honor, & celebrate the courageous CIA officers who died in the line of duty for their country.

During the ceremony, Director Haspel remembered the fallen, saying: “They live on in our thoughts & prayers & remain forever among our ranks—a constant source of pride, inspiration, & strength for those of us who carry on their mission.”

Our Memorial Wall started with 31 stars in 1974. Four stars were added this year for a total of 129 today, each one etched for a hero.

@fernandokrammer depois do silêncio adotado ao observar que NÃO foi nada inteligente apoiar o #Golpe feito na democracia #brasileira, é incoerente se acovardar diante as manobras direcionadas nos diferentes sistemas
#justiçabrasileiraPartidária 😱
