“According to intelligence reports that have since been released to the public, a convoy of about a thousand Taliban and al Qaeda fighters escaped to Tora Bora from Jalalabad [Afghanistan] on November 13, 2001, the same day that Kabul fell to the Northern Alliance. Osama bin Laden was thought to be in the convoy.”
