” ‘Afghanistan is just the beginning on the war against terror,’ the president [Bush] said [on November 21, 2001] to thousands of members of the storied 101st Airborne Division, the Screaming Eagles, which already has troops deployed in Pakistan. ‘There are other terrorists who threaten America and our friends, and there are other nations willing to sponsor them. We will not be secure as a nation until all of these threats are defeated. Across the world, and across the years, we will fight these evil ones, and we will win.’ ”

 – Elisabeth Bumiller, “Bush Says War May Go Beyond Afghan Border,” The New York Times, Nov. 22, 2001
