    Six Navy SEALs filed a lawsuit against the Associated Press and one of its reporters yesterday, saying the news organization revealed their identities, compromised their security and invaded their privacy by publishing personal photographs in a Dec. 4 story.     The complaint says AP reporter Seth Hettena used about 40 images from the personal photo-storage Web site of a Navy SEAL wife. [snip] The images were picked up by the Arab press, including Al Jazeera, and have made their way onto a billboard outside U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where detainees from the war on terror are being kept.

    (Participating was Gen. Peter Pace, Vice Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff.) SEC. RUMSFELD: Good afternoon. Since the United States came under attack on September 11th, coalition forces have removed two terrorist regimes, hunted down Saddam Hussein and roughly two-thirds of known senior al Qaeda operatives, broken up terrorist cells on several continents, and undoubtedly prevented other terrorist attacks. These are important achievements which demonstrate the talent and courage of our forces, the breadth of our efforts. One result has been an increased so-called operational tempo of the force. The tempo has increased significantly. We hope and believe that the...

    Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld talks to 60 Minutes in his first interview since Saddam's capture.  (CBS) President Bush got the first word that U.S. Forces believed they had Saddam in custody from Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. Secretary Rumsfeld talks to Lesley Stahl about what the capture of Saddam Hussein means for the future of American presence in Iraq and what it also means for the Iraqi people. Lesley Stahl: Mr. Secretary, thank you very much for joining us this evening. I guess the big question today is, does the capture of Saddam Hussein now mean, Mission Accomplished? Secretary Rumsfeld:Well, certainly...

    SEC. RUMSFELD: Good afternoon. First, let me express the chairman and my condolences to the families of those civilian casualties last weekend in Afghanistan. Our forces take great care to avoid civilian casualties, and needless to say, they and we deeply regret it. I returned Sunday from NATO meetings in Brussels and meetings in Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Iraq. Azerbaijan and Georgia are important partners in the global war on terror. Each have indicated a desire to strengthen their ties to NATO and to further link their countries to the West. In Georgia, the transition leaders are working to...

    Secretary Rumsfeld: You've had a chance to see the situation up north and how the Iraqi security forces are being integrated into the security activities in this country. Down here you've had a chance to see some of the actual training of the ICDC -- the civil defense elements. We are working hard on it and investing in it. We have wonderful people training them, and they are increasingly taking over responsibility for security in this country. We've gone from, I guess, zero, in probaby around June first to here in early December something in excess of 140,000 Iraqis...

Q: This resurgence of Taliban activity in the south -- are you afraid that the Taliban are trying to make a comeback? Rumsfeld: Am I afraid that the Taliban are trying to make a comeback? No, it is no great surprise that those who have been defeated and removed would like to come back. That's always been the case and they will not have that opportunity. To the extent that they assemble in anything more than ones and twos...

    SECRETARY RUMSFELD: We are almost completed. I've got bilaterals left. We've had a very successful meeting, set of meetings. We've made progress on the NATO-Afghanistan relationship. It's pretty clear to me that either the requirements for the NATO-ISAF role have been filled or they are close to being filled. There may be one or two minor pieces left. There have been discussions about expanding NATO's role in Afghanistan and we expect that there will be some both NATO and probably non-NATO Provincial Reconstruction Teams that will end up being established over a period of time. The Chemical and Biological...

Rumsfeld: Good afternoon. I'm Don Rumsfeld and this is General Pete Pace who is the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States. In the 12 months since the Prague Summit NATO has experienced probably more positive change than in perhaps any ten-year period in its history. Seven new members have been invited to join the Alliance. NATO made the decision to stand up a NATO Response Force, an important decision...

We had an excellent meeting in Colorado Springs, and indeed we've had a lot of progress since the Prague Summit. We've got seven new members to NATO. We've got the NATO Response Force that's now been partially stood up -- I guess it's accurate to say. We have a Chemical and Biological Battalion that now exists. We've established the Alliance's Transformation Command. We have streamlined the command structure from whatever it was -- 19 or 20 -- now down to 11. That's an impressive accomplishment....

I suspect that the best way to use this time would be for me to make some very brief remarks and then have a discussion or respond to questions. I would be happy to do that. First, let me just make a few comments. I think I first came to Korea in 1974 with President Ford when he visited here. I have been back over the years, from time to...
