U.S. special forces captured suspected al-Qaeda operative Abu Anas al-Libi during a raid in Libya this weekend.  Al-Libi is expected to be tried in court for his role in the 1998 embassy bombings in Tanzania and Kenya.  We look back in our Vault to August 7, 1998, the day of the bombings, when Robin Wright of The Los Angeles Times discussed the early investigation into the attacks.
