“Secretary of State Colin Powell encapsulated widely held views of how the [Bush] administration would respond [to the 9/11 attacks] when he said of al Qaeda [on September 14, 2001], ‘We will go after that group, that network, and those who have harbored, supported and aided that network.’ Representing the scope of the administration’s ambitions, Powell then said that ‘when we’re through with that network, we will continue with a global assault against terrorism in general.’ ”
