"Let us remember why we came here. It was here, in Afghanistan, where Osama bin Laden established a safe harbor for his terrorist organization. It was here in Afghanistan where Al Qaeda brought new recruits, trained them, plotted acts of terror. It was here, from within these borders, that Al Qaeda launched the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 innocent men, women, and children. So ten years ago, the United States and our allies went to war to make sure that Al Qaeda would never again use this country to launch attacks against us. Despite initial success, for a number of reasons, this war has taken longer than most anticipated."
