Good Morning, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
It won't take years to complete.
That's Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's latest assessment of the military operation in Afghanistan.
Rumsfeld is headed back to Washington after a foreign tour to garner support for the war on terrorism.
[SS=Anthrax]


As for the anthrax outbreak--New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani says there's no reason to be concerned about the city's latest anthrax report.
A package sent by N-B-C News to a city official contained traces of anthrax.
But it's believed it was contaminated by the tainted letter mailed to anchor Tom Brokaw in September.
Here with an update from Washington is Jim Acosta.

Although regrettable, unintentional civilian casualties that are a result of combat actions are legal under international law...What I haven't seen on your news programs are daily interviews of the many burned and injured victims still in hospitals in this country that were a result of the attack on the WTC, or how their families are coping...Your reporting can change the sentiment against US forces and what they are trying to accomplish. Whose side are you on?"
Another viewer (Dee Weeks/Christiansburg) urges support for the president.
"Our President is doing a difficult job the best way he knows how. I believe we should stand behind him and pray that God will continue to give him wisdom to lead this country.
