Haig: America Is at War

Tuesday, 11 September 2001 12:00 AM

Gen. Haig thinks that the casualties from today's attacks may total tens of thousands of Americans - similar to the death toll from the Vietnam or Korean conflicts.

He noted that this war "has been raging for years" and suggested it has its roots in the Mideast.

"We know who the obvious culprits are - Osama bin Laden, Iraq, the Palestinians - because it is their cause that rallies these people," Haig said.

He had little doubt that one or more countries were involved in today's attacks.

Based on his military experience, Haig said the coordinated attack on U.S. targets took "several years" of planning. He noted this would have meant locating qualified pilots, people with military backgrounds, and significant funding.

"This has global tentacle," Haig said, adding that Iran and Libya should not be excluded from the list of suspects.

Haig believes that attacks on Americans and U.S. targets abroad that had gone unresponded or received just a "token response" led to this significant attack on U.S. territory.
