President Bush has committed 320- million dollars in humanitarian aid to Afghanistan-- a gesture meant to reassure the world that the U-S is at war with terrorists, not Muslims.
Meanwhile, evidence is growing against Osama bin Laden, and so is the international military build-up.

(( While the Taliban calls for proof of Osama Bin Ladens connection to terrorist acts, around the world that proof is coming to light. Englands Prime Minister Tony Blair has briefed Britains Parliament on the alleged evidence, saying at least three of the 19 hijackers were known associates of Bin Laden.

SOT: Englands Prime Minister Tony Blair:

We have absolutely no doubt that Bin Laden and his network were responsible for the attacks on September 11th.
Pakistan followed Englands lead and became the first Muslim nation to agree that evidence linking Bin Laden to the attacks is enough to warrant an indictment. This comes as NATO allies agree to deploy ships and planes in a war on terrorism.

(Nats)


As the global military build-up reaches its peak, President Bush has offered $320 million in humanitarian aid for the Afghan people and neighboring states.

SOT: President George Bush:

This is our way of saying that while we strongly and firmly oppose the Taliban regime, we are friends with the Afghan people.
Back in New York, Mexicos President Vincente Fox paid a visit to the World Trade Center site. Official here say the disaster could cost New York Citys economy as much as $105 billion over the next two years.

Governor Jim Gilmore and Senator George Allen joined other lawmakers yesterday on a U-S Airways shuttle to New York's LaGuardia airport.
The politicians said they wanted to prove it's safe to fly out of Reagan National.
The airport has been shut down since last month's attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Towers ... and is the nation's last to reopen.
Gilmore described it as the symbolic reopening of America.

shows the company used its own stock as collateral for investments. If those investments go bad, the company could lose eight million dollars to lenders.
That's essentially what's happening to Optical Cable's president Bob Kopstein... his lenders are attempting to sell his personal holdings in the company to pay off loans.
Also, the company's cash flow is down 40 percent from last year, partly because it used money to buy back stock in effort to boost the share price.
Finally, Optical Cable has secured a ten million dollar line of credit for potential acquisitions and joint ventures.
