Have you seen signs that the hunt on terrorists has been intensified lately?

From the Boston Globe:
"But he said US forces are "reenergizing" efforts to find not just bin Laden and other senior Al Qaeda members but also leaders of other enemy groups -- most notably, Mohammad Omar, who headed the Taliban government ousted by US forces in 2001, and Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, a renegade Afghan warlord."

From the Chicago Tribune:
"Terrorist attacks in Arab and Muslim countries have led those governments to vastly improve their cooperation with U.S. authorities in the war on terrorism, particularly in cutting off financing, FBI Director Robert Mueller said Tuesday."

From Reuters:
"Pakistan has stepped up efforts to track down al Qaeda and Taliban militants in recent months in response to American concerns that Islamic militants have been using Pakistani territory to launch attacks inside Afghanistan."

From NBC News:
"The commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan said Tuesday that his troops are stepping up efforts to capture Osama bin Laden and ousted Taliban leader Mullah Omar, maintaining that the "sand in their hour glass is running out.""
