On Sunday, October 7, 26 days after the terrorist attacks of September 11, the United States and Great Britain began their long-awaited military response. The two nations launched air attacks against military installations of the Taleban regime in Afghanistan, and al-Qaida, the terror organization led by reputed mastermind, Osama bin-Laden.
Other nations in the global coalition to fight terrorism have pledged military forces to support the ongoing effort. But the initiative is not just being fought with bombs, as we hear in this Dateline report from Neal Lavon.
