Eight adventure tourists in Uganda, including an American couple, were killed by their Rwandan captors in the rain forest made famous by "Gorillas in the Mist," and a survivor said Tuesday that the rebels hacked some victims to death with machetes. In Washington, State Department spokesman James Foley called the Monday attack "about as abominable a crime as one can imagine--hostage-taking [and] coldblooded murder of hostages." Four Britons and two New Zealanders were also killed.

When a career politician and diplomat--and especially one whose turf is the treacherous and tumultuous Middle East--sits down to write his memoirs, we should not expect much in the way of revelation. And, in fact, we don't get many state secrets of Israel or intimate details about Shimon Peres in "Battling for Peace," an autobiography of the Israeli diplomat who shared the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994. Peres, for example, mentions his children only once, and only in a footnote on page 127.
