Statement on the Murder of Lt. Col. Charles R. Ray, Assistant Army Attache in Paris

January 18, 1982

Lieutenant Colonel Charles R. Ray, our Assistant Army Attache in Paris, was a distinguished career officer. He gave his life in the line of duty as surely as if he had fallen in battle. Our hearts go out to his family in their bereavement, and the wanton act of his murderers reinforces our determination to stamp out international terrorism and prevent similar tragedies in the future.
