Datebook: September 20 – Bush declares War on Terror 10 years ago
On September 20, 2001, during a televised address to a joint session of congress and in the wake of the September 11 attacks, President George W. Bush delivered an ultimatum to the Taliban government of Afghanistan to turn over Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda leaders operating in the country or face attack. He said, “Our ‘war on terror’ begins with al Qaeda, but it does not end there. It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated.”
