US Vows to Capture Bin Laden
Adjust font size:

The United States vowed on Tuesday to capture elusive Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden and meanwhile stressed that war on terrorism is not just against the terror network leader.


Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden is seen speaking in this video grab provided to Reuters on September 11, 2007. Bin Laden eulogizes a September 11 hijacker as a rare and magnificent man in a tape released on Tuesday to mark the sixth anniversary of the attacks on the US. The Al Qaeda leader's voice can be heard over a still image presenting the last testament of Waleed al-Shehri, and praising his role in the attacks. The 47-minute video did not appear to include any moving images of bin Laden, but it did include English subtitles.


US President George W. Bush has pledged that the US will get bin Laden, Tony Snow said at a briefing.


"Bin Laden is somebody who is the symbolic leader of Al-Qaida. Certainly the capture of bin Laden would be of enormous symbolic importance," Snow said.


However, "the fact is that the war against terror is not a war against one guy, Osama bin Laden. It is against a network that uses all sorts of ways of trying to recruit new terrorists," Snow said.


The US marks the six anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks and bin Laden, the accused mastermind of the terror attacks, is still at large.


Moreover, bin Laden is still haunting the US as he appeared on a new video shown on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
