Isn't peace beautiful?
And remember, THIS is the country that we "won" (and then ignored to go after Iraq):
(CNN) -- In some of the fiercest fighting in months, Afghan forces backed by U.S.-led coalition troops killed 41 Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan, the governor of Kandahar province has said.
U.S.-led troops overthrew the Taliban government in Kabul in 2001 after its leaders refused to hand over al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, architect of the September 11 attacks on the United States. Kandahar used to be Taliban's stronghold.
Yeah, remember that Osama guy? "Alive or dead"? "Won't stop pursuing until we bring him to justice"?
Q Second question: The President's speech today at the Pentagon as far as terrorism and fighting terrorism is concerned, do you think that Osama bin Laden is still in -- is running the al Qaeda business?
MR. McCLELLAN: I'm sorry, who?
