War Report

WASHINGTON, D.C., September 24—While the U.S. rhetorically blasts bin Laden, the real attack may
well be against Saddam Hussein, who is suspected of developing chemical and
biological warfare agents. Rafi Eitan, the former head of Israel’s Mossad secret service, told the Sydney Morning Herald: “I have no doubt whatsoever that
the mastermind of this atrocity [the WTC attack] is none other than the Iraqi
dictator.” Military sources suspect that just as soon as the U.S. carriers get
close enough, the real attacks will target Iraq, with bin Laden as a
sideshow.


Meanwhile, the London Times is reporting that a British Special Air Forces
commando unit has already made contact and traded fire with Taliban troops
inside Afghanistan. The SAS is working with MI6 agents to track down bin
Laden, the paper says. The Times also reports that 82nd and 101st U.S.
Airborne are just inside the Pakistan border with Afghanistan, and that the
U.S. has Air Force units in Uzbekistan. The British are staging attacks from
Tajikistan.
