U.S. Admits Arafat Murdered American Officials

From U.S. Admits Arafat Murdered American Officials:

After 33 years, the U.S. State Department has finally declassified a document admitting it knew that the murder of two U.S. diplomats in Sudan in 1973 "was planned and carried out with the full knowledge and personal approval" of PLO leader Yasser Arafat. In the attack on March 1, 1973, eight members of the Black September terrorist organization, part of Arafat's Fatah faction, stormed the Saudi embassy in Khartoum on Arafat's orders, taking hostage and then murdering U.S. Ambassador Cleo Noel, Charge d'Affaires George Curtis Moore, and Belgian diplomat Guy Eid.
