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.
