As the U.S. begins to scale down its military presence in Afghanistan, it appears that the so called "war on terrorism" is also winding down.

But the U.S. has a secret blueprint in place called the "disposition matrix" which includes the names of all known terrorists. These names will remain targets for many years to come, and the White House, CIA and other counterterrorism agencies are declining to comment in the issue.
