Staying the Course

National Review;3/25/2002, Vol. 54 Issue 5, p17
This article focuses on military actions taken by the U.S. against terrorists. The war on terrorism started by the U.S. has been appreciated all over the world. Now as the country is sending troops to Yemen, the Philippines, and ex-Soviet Georgia, several Democratic senators are complaining that the government is losing direction and that the war is expanding and becoming "open-ended." The administration has planned a policy of moving some of its federal workers to an unknown location for operation in the case of a nuclear attack. The government has not denied the possibility that the terrorist organization al-Qaeda may have the ability to set off at least a bomb with radioactive material. Bush said that the aim of the administration is not to kill or capture al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Bush has insisted throughout his goal is to disable or deter all those who are trying to disrupt peace and security.
