"We don't know where bin Laden is. I mean we've been pretty honest about that."

(VO:) It's possible...military commanders say... that bin Laden could

still be hiding in a cave or one of eight known terrorist camps US special forces have yet to check. He could be dead...or may have fled Afghanistan under the protection of a local warlord . Still, an all-out search goes on.

(SOT/IVO DAALDER, BROOKINGS INSTITUTION)

"Because as long as he is alive, as long as he is a symbol, we will not have begun to finish this war, because he has to be part of any solution."

(VO:) In launching the war...President Bush was careful not to make

bin Laden a personal focus...

(SOT/BUSH)

"OUR ENEMY IS A RADICAL NETWORK OF TERRORISTS, AND EVERY GOVERNMENT THAT SUPPORTS THEM"

(VO:) But, the President saying he wants bin Laden 'dead or alive'

....now ties HIS fate to the success of the war.

(SOT/FRANK GAFFNEY, CENTER FOR SECURITY POLICY)

"It is important for the purpose of the message that we're sending to the world, that the enemy leaders BE captured or killed or both and that there be no confusion as to what were the consequences of taking on the United States, of doing it harm."

(ORR ON CAMERA)

Polls continue to show an overwhelming majority of Americans backs the Afghan war effort ...and understand winning it could take a long time.
But, experts warn, if the US fails to kill or capture bin Laden, public support for the WIDER war on terrorism could be lost. Bob Orr, CBS News, Washington.))
