The eastern Afghanistan offensive

The Fourth Rail: Could Bin Laden be the Target?

Bill Roggio of the Fourth Rail reports heavy fighting in the Tora Bora region of Eastern Afghanistan. Dr. Amin al Haq, who serves as Osama bin Laden's security coordinator, was reported to have been wounded in the fighting.

In previous engagements with Taliban and Al Qaeda forces believed to be protecting or traveling with bin Laden, his "Black Guard" security detail has been involved.

This offensive bears watching closely.
