WorldNetDaily reports that the US State Dept. declassified a document admitting it knew Yasser Arafat personally plotted and supervised a 1973 attack on the Saudi embassy in Sudan. US diplomats Ambassador Cleo Noel and Charge d'Affaires George Curtis Moore, along with Belgian diplomat Guy Eid were held hostage and executed. The document states:
The Khartoum operation was planned and carried out with the full knowledge and personal approval of Yasir Arafat Chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and the head of Fatah….
The terrorists extended their deadline three times, but when they became convinced that their demands would not be met and after they reportedly had received orders from Fatah headquarters in Beirut, they killed the two U.S. officials and the Belgian Charge. Thirty-four hours later, upon receipt of orders from Yasir Arafat to surrender, the terrorists released their other hostages unharmed and surrendered to Sudanese authorities.
Arafat won a Nobel Peace Prize 21 years after Khartoum. Real kudos go to everyone who tenaciously pressed the controversial issue.
