The Pentagon has developed a special plan in case Osama bin Laden or other Al-Qaeda or Taliban leaders are captured. This information was disclosed by Tommy Franks, the Commander of the US military operation in Afghanistan, at a briefing in Washington. He refused to unfold all details of the plan stating that the United States could hold captured terrorists in Afghanistan. In particular, he said, they could be held in the US marines camp outside Kandahar or in Kandahar airport, which was also seized by US marines two days before. Besides, detainees could be transferred to an American ship located in the region, the General stated.
