Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld travels to Afghanistan to meet with President Hamid Karzai and to review the country's progress since U.S. troops drove the Taliban from power in November 2001. While Kabul shows signs of recovery, the rest of the country suffers from lack of security. Two U.S. soldiers and more than a dozen Afghan soldiers have been killed in recent weeks.
