There is no doubt that war has been waged on America. After two planes collided with the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, and another plane crashed into the Pentagon, America has suffered irreparable damages. An estimated 5,000 people have died, and the centers of American military and economic activity have been attacked.
President Bush and other high-ranking federal officials said from the beginning that America will retaliate, making Osama bin Laden the prime suspect. Although connections have been made to bin Laden and his organization, Al Qaeda (the base), no evidence has surfaced that directly links bin Laden to the attacks.
