In Phase Two of Operation Enduring Freedom, “air strikes and Special Operations attacks would hit key al Qaeda and Taliban targets [in Afghanistan]. In an innovative joint effort, CIA and Special Operations forces would be deployed to work together with each major Afghan faction opposed to the Taliban. The Phase Two strikes and raids began on October 7 [2001].”
