Press Statement by James P. Rubin, Spokesman
September 10, 1998
Admiral William Crowe Sworn in as
Chairman of Accountability Review Boards for
Embassy Bombings in Nairobi and Dar Es Salaam
Secretary of State Albright on September 9 swore in Admiral William Crowe as Chairman of two Accountability Review Boards (ARBs) charged with investigations of the August 7 bombings of Embassy Nairobi and Embassy Dar Es Salaam. Under the provisions of the Omnibus Diplomatic Security and Antiterrorism Act of 1986, the Secretary appoints such Boards whenever there is loss of life, serious injury, or significant destruction of property at or related to U.S. Government missions abroad. The two Boards chaired by Admiral Crowe will examine the facts and circumstances surrounding the Nairobi and Dar Es Salaam bombings, and will submit written findings determining:
The Boards' reports to the Secretary will include the Boards' findings, any program recommendations, and any personnel recommendations. Once formed, the Boards will present their findings to the Secretary in 60 days (unless the investigations require additional time).
The Boards will be fully formed in the near future, and each Board will consist, in addition to Admiral Crowe as Chairman, of four members and an Executive Secretary.
