In an op-ed for The New York Times on October 15, 2004, former Commander of Coalition Forces General Tommy Franks wrote: ” ‘The war on terror can’t be divided into separate and unrelated wars–one in Afghanistan, the other in Iraq. Afghanistan and Iraq are part of the same effort, a global effort to capture and kill terrorists before they are able to strike America…again…potentially with weapons of mass destruction.’ ”
