TERRORISM: NATO invokes article 5

I just heard in a news conference that NATO has invoked article 5
of it's charter.

In effect this says that an attack on the United States is an
attack on all NATO members.

This is an essential step in the use of force.

It appears more and more that the U.S. is going to turn this into
an international effort to wipe out terrorism, starting out with
Ossama Bin Laden.

During the conference they mentioned almost inadvertantly that we
had intercepted messages of congratulations among't Bin Ladens
people. A point the reporters seemed to miss.
