Verdict Reaction

Linda Wertheimer talks with Ambassador Prudence Bushnell, who was U.S. ambassador to Kenya at the time of the embassy bombings. She was in a building next door when the blast destroyed the embassy in Nairobi. Bushnell describes her experience that day. She also says she believes the verdict is fitting, coming just after Memorial Day weekend, when the U.S. remembers people who have died in the service of the country.
