Hopefully there is an American expat or two among them.

Another report said the house was being used by Uzbek militants fighting with the Taliban.

Often the Paki press refers to " Arabs " as " foreigners" .

Some reports speculate that it's Hakimullah Mehsud that we're after.

At any rate, keep up the good work. Perhaps Mehsud will die while running.

The Paki press sometimes uses the word miscreant to describe them.

Oddly enough, the definition of the word is as follows:

1. An evildoer; a villain.
2. An infidel; a heretic.

At least they didn’t use the propaganda term “civilians”.

You heard he was wounded in a drone attack a few days ago, right?

I did read that he was wounded and the denials , (It's only a flesh wound!).

If he's too banged up to move, perhaps he'll die a slow death.

If he's dying a slow death, perhaps they'll risk moving him and he'll get whacked.

I'm crossing my fingers and betting on the second scenario.

Of course, he could be ok and we'll just have to keep after the SOB.

I like the up tick in the amount of drone attacks, it can only produce positive results, imho.

The thing that impresses me is how much better our intelligence gets when a dim is in the White House. I mean when GWB was President we only managed to blow up “wedding parties”, now we never hit any civilians just terrorists. Truly an amazing thing how our aim has improved.

"The death toll may rise, according to sources."

Yeah...I'm OK with that.

The media had these meetings to be weddings during the Bush administration.

From wire reports:

The house targeted in Sunday's attack was being used by Usman Jan, the head of the al-Qaida-linked Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, intelligence officials said.

Five Uzbeks were killed in the strike, but it was unclear if Jan was among them. Jan's predecessor, Tahir Yuldash, was also killed in a drone strike in South Waziristan last year.

Oddly enough, the definition of the word is as follows:

1. An evildoer; a villain.
2. An infidel; a heretic.

And somewhere in the liberal world of logic, there’s a “think tank” trying to figure out why muzzies want us all dead.

Oddly enough, I, too, have a definition of the word muzzie.
Here it is:

1. mohammud’s follower, an evil muzzie.
2. morally wrong or bad; immoral; wicked: evil deeds; an evil life.
3. harmful; injurious: evil laws.
4. characterized or accompanied by misfortune or suffering; unfortunate; disastrous: to be fallen on evil days.
5. due to actual or imputed bad conduct or character: an evil reputation.
6. marked by anger, irritability, irascibility, etc.: He is known for his evil disposition.

That’s just off the top of my head.
