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.

I am tired Barack Obama “air raiding villages and bombing on civilians”. I am sure the Left is going to start investigating this war criminal. Code Pink - Michael Moore, Bueller, Bueller....

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.
