ABC News has more details on that raid or attack or whatever it was in Afghanistan today. Let’s find out what is was, exactly:
About 1,000 U.S. troops launched a raid on villages in southeastern Afghanistan Wednesday night, hunting for members of the al-Qaida terrorist network, military officials said.
Helicopters ferried troops from the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division to the remote, mountainous area as the hunt for Osama bin Laden and his terror network intensified.
U.S. military officials in Afghanistan only confirmed the operation was underway.
“I do not have anything to say about the Kandahar operation at this time,” said Col. Roger King, U.S. army spokesman.
OK, so maybe they didn’t have much more in the way of details, but at least now we know the story is for-real. Iraq isn’t the only enemy here, and it’s nice to see the Administration not forgetting that.
There’s also a little shock and awe when you can strike multiple targets on two fronts nearly-simultaneously.
