Mr. McClellan said American intelligence agencies were trying to determine whether the tape provided clues about Al Qaeda's operations. "If there is any actionable intelligence, we will act on it," he said.
"We are winning," Mr. McClellan continued. "Clearly, Al Qaeda and the terrorists are on the run, and that is why it is important that we do not let up and do not stop until the job is done."
Mr. McClellan added: "We continue to act on all fronts to win the war on terrorism, and we will. The president is fully committed to do everything within his power to prevent attacks and to defeat the terrorists. We are taking the fight to the enemy, we are working to advance freedom and democracy, to defeat their evil ideology."
Mr. bin Laden typically chooses his timing and messages carefully to prove a point, Mr. Salah said. "He is playing on the American people's desire to get out of Iraq and the Islamic fundamentalist swamp. And he is telling Bush that 'I am winning and I am still there.' "
"Mr. bin Laden has clearly had trouble getting his message out and added, "We don't negotiate with terrorists." Said Vice President Dick Cheney.
"I think you have to destroy them," he said. "It's the only way to deal with them."
Apparently, American forces are taking this situation very seriously, and will do they're best to prevent any further attacks.
