Terrorist attack

Looks like I got out of Kampala just in time: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/12/world/africa/12uganda.html?_r=1&hp

I've been in touch with the friends I made in Kampala and they're okay. This tragedy reinforces how relevant my research is to world events. I discussed Uganda's military presence in Somalia many times with defense officials over the past month-- many predicted that Uganda could become a focal point for terrorism. I was skeptical at the time, and very sad to see their predictions proved correct. Please pray for the victims and for justice for the perpetrators.
