“At a meeting of the NSC [National Security Council] held on the morning of September 13, 2001, President Bush ordered Secretary of Defense [Donald] Rumsfeld to begin preparing a plan to attack the Taliban regime in Afghanistan, including a range of options up to and including an actual invasion. The name eventually given to the operation was Enduring Freedom.”
