Drone strikes claim lives in Pakistan

Source: Al Jazeera

At least eight people have been killed in two suspected US drone attacks in Pakistan's northwestern tribal areas, security officials say.

Both attacks took place in the Mir Ali area of the North Waziristan tribal district in the early hours of Tuesday.

In Khiderkhel, eight missiles were fired at a compound, killing at least four people, security sources told Al Jazeera. In Essakhel, meanwhile, two missiles were fired, killing at least three people.

The two attacks happened within an hour of each other. The identity of those killed could not be immediately confirmed. The US, however, claimed that an al-Qaeda operative was among those killed.

1. Drone strikes are only 2% effective....

 

Today... Obama ordered the death of 8 people who were "Suspected" of being terrorists.

Only in officialdom they don't call it murder.. they call it "Collateral Damage".

We are fostering Terrorism around the world. Wouldn't you hate the guts of some country that dropped a bomb on your family for no reason?

Bring our troops home. End this madness.

5. Perhaps headline should read

 

LATEST US drone strike...

Al Jazeera is a legitimate news source in every sense of the phrase. I welcome their addition to US news outlets. But I wonder what the "US Edition" will amount to...

7. Killing is 100% OK as long as the US military is doing the killing around the world
