Since September 11th they have worked straight through, 24 hours a day. Now they work in two or three different shifts, but the reality is that the work is always going on.
On the other side of the globe, Americas war on terrorism has hit full stride. Bombings around the clock-- are pounding targets in Afghanistan, trying to root out Osama Bin Laden and crush the Taliban government that shields him. Afghanistan's Northern Alliance opposition is ready to help the U.S. when the action is on the ground.

SOT: Northern Alliance Special Envoy Daoud Mir

Mr. Bin Laden has nothing to loose. Al Qaida has nothing to loose, therefore we should finish this war very quickly.
At home, the President has revealed the faces of terrorism. A list of 22 suspects wanted for their evil deeds. Bin Laden tops the list.

SOT: George W. Bush

This effort is part of a worldwide assault on terror. all our allies and friends will now be familiar with these evildoers and their associates. ))
