In conjunction with the attack on Iraq, 1000 U.S. troops had launched a sweep in southern Afghanistan. After three days of searching they have stopped with no results. Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, Mullah Omar are nowhere to be found.

After the capture of the person said to be Khalid Muhammad, there was great hope in U.S. circles that the three would be captured. The U.S. claimed that it was only "hours" behind Osama.

A series of new attacks have been launched by Afghans at U.S. and Karzai forces during the last one week.
