MIRANSHAH, Pakistan (Reuters) A suspected U.S. drone fired two missiles into an al Qaeda and Taliban sanctuary in a Pakistani region the Afghan border on Tuesday, killing at least three militants, Pakistani intelligence officials said.
The strike in the North Waziristan region was the first since U.S. President Barack Obama's speech last week outlining plans to send 30,000 more U.S. troops to Afghanistan.
Obama said Pakistan must not allow its territory to be used as a sanctuary for militants.

God, I hope it wasn’t a CJ-8. They’re so hard to find in good condition.
Confirmed that two of the dead were newly arrived Saudis. There were 7 drones tracking the targets, two hellfires struck the truck as soon as it left the compound in Aspalgha.
Kudos to air traffic control.. Dang, that’s a lot of birds.
