Hunt for Bin Laden
26 February, 2004
The US military appears increasingly confident of finding al Qaida chief Usama bin Laden and other senior militants this year.
pakistan has arrested more than 500 al-Qaida suspects and handed them over to the United States over the past two years.
Troops from both sides have launched a fresh offensive against al-Qaida and Taliban fighters hiding in remote tribal areas (South Waziristan) near the Pak-Afghan border.
"We are on the hunt for al-Qaida," Bush told a meeting of US governors at the White House.
"It requires all assets, intelligence assets and military assets, to chase them down and bring them to justice, and we're going pretty good - better than pretty good," he said.
1. Why do you think importance was not given to Osama Bin Laden's capturing during early days of war on terror in Afghanistan?
2- Is the recent agressive hunt compaign against Osama Bin Laden, a possible political move of President Bush for coming US elections?
