"The massive truck bomb that destroyed the American Embassy in Beirut in April 1983 targeted the symbol of the United States in Lebanon. The why and how of that terrorist incident have frequently been explored. The human consequences have recieved less attention. In her book, Practicing forgiveness: Aftermath of the First Suicide Bombing of an American Target - Beirut, Lebanon, Margaret Powell has weitten movingly about those human consequences. She describes what happened to the McIntyre family when their husband and father, my friend and coleague, Bill McINtyre was killed.
