Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld says the Military is not narrowing its search for Al-Qaeda Top Leaders following the launch of a new operation to sweep out remnants of the Taliban and Al-Qaeda from the mountains. Rumsfeld made it clear that Operation Mountain Storm is just a routine mission and expecting anything major would be a misunderstanding. However military spokesman in Afghanistan, Lt. Col. Bryan Hilferty, said that American troops were stepping up efforts to find Osama bin Laden and destroy his terror network with a major new sweep in southern and eastern Afghanistan. The same military spokesman had said in January that he was "sure" the United States and its allies would catch bin Laden by the end of the year.
 

Rumsfeld Says Military Not Narrowing Search for Al-Qaeda Leader
Asked if the military might be closing in on bin Laden, Rumsfeld replied: "No. That's what I would want to disabuse anyone of. You know, he may be alive and he may not be. We don't know if he's alive or dead. He may be in Afghanistan. He may be in Pakistan. He may be someplace else."
