Well, boys... that's the way the jihad crumbles...
-- PESHAWAR, Pakistan, Feb. 28 -- A missile strike on a suspected Taliban safe house in a remote tribal area of northwest Pakistan killed at least 10 people early Thursday, according to residents and local officials.Ain't technology a wonderful thing?
The attack targeted a home in Kaloosha village in volatile South Waziristan, near the Afghan border. Kaloosha has long been considered a stronghold of foreign and local fighters with ties to al-Qaeda.It appears as though U.S forces have managed to insert sufficient reconnaissance assets into the purportedly impenetrable "tribal lands"... to light up high-value targets for their Predator program. I'm guessin' that's gonna make for some sleepless nights in Osamaville.
The village was home to Nek Mohammed Wazir, a commander who was killed in an apparent missile strike in June 2004 after supplying shelter to hundreds of al-Qaeda fighters following the start of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan in 2001.
The attack, less than 20 miles from the Afghan border, marked the second targeted missile strike in a month in the rugged mountainous region, a key battleground in Pakistan's fight with the Taliban and al-Qaeda.It's also gonna sow some dissension, as the Taliban try to figure out which of their compatriots might've narc'd them out to the Great Satan.
Thirteen people, including top al-Qaeda lieutenant Abu Laith al-Libi, were killed Jan. 28 in an airstrike in the village of Khushali Torikhel in North Waziristan.
Yessiree... definitely a win-win development.
Hey, Timmy... where is your god now?
