From Hold Iran Accountable:
On Oct. 23, 1983, the government of Iran sent a truck bomb into the Marine Corps barracks in Beirut, Lebanon, killing 241 men and wounding countless others. It was mass murder. For 24 years, since that horrible day, that horrible moment, the government of Iran has literally been getting away with murder. In May 2003, a U.S. district court found the government of Iran liable for organizing and funding the Beirut attack.Lynn Smith Derbyshire's brother, Marine Capt. Vincent Smith, was killed in the 1983 Beirut bombing. Judith C. Young is the mother of Marine Sgt. Jeffrey Young, who was killed in the Beirut bombing.
