THE INVASION A War Footing President George W. Bush signs into law a joint resolution authorizing the use of force against those responsible for attacking the United States on 9/11. Reconstructing Afghanistan President George W. Bush calls for the reconstruction of Afghanistan in a speech at the Virginia Military Institute. "By helping to build an Afghanistan that is free from this evil and is a better place in which to live.
THE INVASION CONTINUED Major Combat Over During a briefing with reporters in Kabul, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld declares an end to "major combat.” An International Mission The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) assumes control of international security forces (ISAF) in Afghanistan, expanding NATO/ISAF's role across the country. It is NATO's first operational commitment outside of Europe.
THE INVASION CONTINUED Obama Commits President Barack Obama announces plans to send seventeen thousand more troops to the war zone. Obama reaffirms campaign statements that Afghanistan is the more important U.S. front against terrorist forces. A New Tragedy President Obama announces a new strategy for the war effort, linking success in Afghanistan to a stable Pakistan. The core goal of the strategy, as outlined in an interagency white paper, is "to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat al Qaeda and its safe havens in Pakistan, and to prevent their return to Pakistan or Afghanistan."
THE INVASION CONTINUED Osama Bin Laden On May 1, 2011, al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, responsible for the 9/11 attacks in New York and Washington, is killed by U.S. forces in Pakistan. The death of America's primary target for a war that started ten years ago fuels the long-simmering debate about continuing the Afghanistan war.
