Government Statements and Transcripts

  • Transcript: Defense Department Briefing, January 3, 2002 03 Jan. 2002-- Rumsfeld: We do want to capture Osama bin Laden and Omar and the al Qaeda and Taliban leadership, that we're working on it, but even if we were to capture them tomorrow, our job would still be far from over. The network is well organized. It's global. We continue to get additional intelligence information, which reinforces our conviction as to the breadth and depth of that terrorist network. So we do have a good distance to go.
  • Transcript: USAID Chief Says Famine Averted in Afghanistan 03 Jan. 2002-- MR. NATSIOS: Thank you very much. It appears from the data we've collected and the reporting we're getting from the field that we have averted widespread famine in Afghanistan, and this is a major, I think, accomplishment. The congratulations go to the international organizations such as the World Food Program that did the primary distribution into the country, and then to the NGOs that did the distribution from the interior warehouses to the remote villages and to the cities.
