The United States vowed on Tuesday to capture elusive Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden and meanwhile stressed that war on terrorism is not just against the terror network leader.
U.S. President George W. Bush has pledged that the United States will get bin Laden, Tony Snow said at a briefing.
"Bin Laden is somebody who is the symbolic leader of Al-Qaida. Certainly the capture of bin Laden would be of enormous symbolic importance," Snow said.
However, "the fact is that the war against terror is not a war against one guy, Osama bin Laden. It is against a network that uses all sorts of ways of trying to recruit new terrorists," Snow said.
The United States marks the six anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks and bin Laden, the accused mastermind of the terror attacks, is still at large.
Moreover, bin Laden is still haunting the United States as he appeared on a new video shown on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
