Ground Forces

NPR's David Molpus reports that U.S. ground forces went on an overnight operation in Afghanistan Friday. Meanwhile, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld visited Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri, home of the B-2 stealth bombers that have flown during the Afghan campaign. He spoke a few hours before the raid in more somber and cautionary tones about the risks involved in the coming battle.
