- Secretary Rumsfeld Joint Media Availability with Australian Defense Minister 10 Jan. 2002-- Rumsfeld: Well, I would respond very briefly simply by saying, "You bet." There's just no question but that this is going to be a long process. There are terrorist networks well beyond al Qaeda, and they exist in many parts of the globe. And our view is that there's no way in the world the United States can or should be engaged in this activity alone. We've had wonderful support from dozens and dozens of countries, not least of which is Australia. And we value that. And on the other hand, from our standpoint, we want to do the best possible job of dealing with terrorists and terrorist states. Therefore, we believe it's up to each country to decide in what ways -- how, when and where -- they want to cooperate with that, and to characterize it themselves.
