Good Afternoon, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
A U-S official confirms the attacks are under way for a THIRD straight night in Afghanistan.
The senior official, however, is not identifying the latest targets.
These attacks follow a one-two punch against the Taliban that included the first daytime attack since the American-led assault began on Sunday.
A Taliban soldier in Kandahar reports the Americans are hitting targets near that city-- which is the headquarters of the Taliban.
Meanwhile, a senior U-S defense official says the unpredictable attacks are part of an ongoing effort to keep Taliban leaders "on their toes."
Aleen Sirgany is in Washington this afternoon, and joins us now with the latest.

(SOT)(English) DR SHAH WALI, AFGHAN TECHNICAL CONSULTANCY OFFICIAL:

"They have missed their target. We don't know whey they have done this, why they have dropped a bomb on here, here is maybe 500 metres square, it is nowhere near a military target, there is nothing else."
EVEN AS THOUSANDS OF AFGHANS SCRAMBLE TO GET OUT OF THEIR COUNTRY, THE RULING TALIBAN PARTY SAYS THEY ARE WILLING TO SACRIFICE TWO MILLION LIVES IN THEIR FIGHT FOR AFGHANISTAN. AND THEY CLAIM.. OSAM BIN LADEN IS ALIVE AND STILL .. IN AFGHANISTAN.
