Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld predicts the fighting will end in days, rather than weeks. He says the big question is how well the al-Qaida and Taliban fighters are getting reinforcements and supplies. U-S troops are keeping their choke-hold on a 60-to-70-square-mile area in the mountains south of Gardez. American bombers have launched one of the heaviest raids on the area yet, despite by poor weather. Meanwhile, Sergeant Major Frank Grippe (GRIH'-pee) today described conditions on the first day of the battle.
