U.S. Military Campaign

At the Pentagon, the Defense Secretary and General Richard Myers, the chairman of the joint chiefs, described the U.S. campaign in Afghanistan as on the right track. They hinted once again that the U.S. is working with opposition forces on the ground in Afghanistan, gathering information and aiding their fight against the Taliban. Rumsfeld said the U.S. is finding Taliban and al Qaeda leadership and that some have been killed in airstrikes. NPR's Tom Gjelten has a report.
