#1 US Drone Kills Top Militant in NW Pakistan02-09-2012, 12:17 PM
Pakistani intelligence sources say a U.S. drone strike in northwest Pakistan has killed a senior militant with links to al-Qaida.
Badar Mansoor was killed in the attack early Thursday at a house in Miran Shah, the main town in Pakistan's North Waziristan tribal agency. His death was confirmed by members of the Pakistani Taliban.
Officials say Mansoor led a group of Taliban fighters in the region and had close ties to al-Qaida. He was allegedly involved in a number of attacks throughout Pakistan.
Four other militants were also killed in the missile strike.
It was the second such attack in northwest Pakistan in as many days.
Pakistan's northwest border region is home to both Pakistani and Afghan Taliban fighters.

Hell must be getting full.Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:
"Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings..." Patrick Henry
