Summary

Summary

When terrorists attacked the United States on September 11, 2001, their weapons were commercial airliners carrying hundreds of innocent passenger. America's response was called Operation Enduring Freedom, and its weapons included some of the most sophisticated military technology in the world. From smart bombs and laser-guided missiles to remote-controlled robots searching dark and dangerous caves, the weapons of the war on terrorism broke up the al-Qaeda organization and liberated Afghanistan from the oppressive Taliban regime.
