US drones kill 15 militants in Pakistan: officials
AFP – 7 hours ago

A triple US drone attack on a militant compound in Pakistan's northwestern tribal area killed at least 15 insurgents late Friday, security officials said.

Three unmanned aircraft fired a total of six missiles on Datta Khel village, some 35 kilometres (22 miles) east of Miranshah, the main town of North Waziristan tribal district, near the Afghan border, they said.

The initial strike on a house killed nine militants, three more were killed in a second attack when they drove to the site to recover dead bodies, and a third drone killed three more five minutes later, a senior security official in Peshawar told AFP.

What really p****** me off about this is that democrats screamed their heads off when Dubya ordered these hits. Oh, we’re killing children. Oh, we’re slaughtering wedding guests. But now that Zero is doing the same thing it’s a race to see who’s the quickest to zip up their muzzle, and they are quite happy to let Obama take the credit. They are truly traitors; everything is done for political gain. Nothing is done for the good of country.

I don’t see the problem. This is the one thing Obama is doing right, hit the bastards hard and often without putting our pilots in harm’s way (and doing it much cheaper than manned aircraft). Yes, Bush put this in motion originally, but I’m happy Obama has continued this and even stepped up the action. He is taking heat from the far left on this and hasn’t slowed down.

As far as the kill list, please check off every item on it. I can’t see that Bush would have disagreed. If someone’s actively working for the enemy in war time then he’s a fair military target regardless of citizenship.

As I’ve maintained, the only thing I can say about Hussein that he’s doing well, is that he continues the policies of his predecessor.

“insurgents”

Anyone know exactly what that term means, in politico-speak ?

Are they the same thing as the ‘partisans’ in WWII ?

How do you know these targets are working 'for' the enemy, and not 'against' them?

I doubt Anwar al-Awlaki was a mole. He was their most valuable recruiter, even got Maj Hasan to kill his fellow Americans.

I'll say one thing, this attack was sophisticated and brutal. Three drones each with two Hellfire missiles. The first drone hits the house. The second drone waits for people to come collect the bodies and then blows them to hell. The third drone waits at altitude until more people show up and then wastes them too. We must have pretty good intel to know those that would show up to collect the first and second set of bodies were on Obama’s kill list.

Agreed.

Sometimes people become so politically jaundiced that they are incapable of thinking straight.

This is one of the very few things Maobama is doing right. He’s listening to the advice of ADULTS in the intelligence community by going after the worst of the worst and keeping their leadership in a total state of disarray.

As long as these drones are flying and as long as our intelligence is vigilent the jihadists incapable of organizing or developing a leadership structure.

And it’s all done for pennies on the dollar.

I suppose. But islamists kill other islamists all the time anyway. It may just happen that it works to soetoro’s advantage.
