Obama and Bush Meet in Africa, Honor Terror Victims

President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush met Tuesday in the Tanzanian capital of Dar-es-Salaam in memory of the hundreds at the embassy killed there and in Nairobi, Kenya, in 1998 by al-Qaida truck bombs. A U.S. Marine laid a wreath as the two presidents stood for a moment of silence. They did not make any remarks but spoke to survivors and family members of victims. Twelve Americans were among the 224 people killed in Osama bin Laden's opening salvo against America, a precursor to the Sept. 11, 2001, attack.
