Adding insult to infamy

It is absurd that the families of those killed in the Beirut bombings of 1983 are still waiting for restitution.

There is a simple remedy. If the US government wishes to avoid upsetting delicate negotiations between itself and a foreign government, then it should pay the costs incurred by that government through judicial decisions.

It is unconscionable that this cost is being born by the families who lost loved ones 26 years ago.
