Regarding the attack on Afghanistan, “The bombing was so extensive and Afghanistan’s infrastructure so pitiful that within forty-eight hours [by October 9, 2001], [Secretary of Defense Donald] Rumsfeld was complaining that he was running out of targets to hit. ‘We’re pounding sand,’ [President] Bush later told [journalist] Bob Woodward.”
