Talk about bad timing. Today, Pakistan's foreign secretary spoke out against US drone strikes, and said they were unnecessary as al Qaeda has been defeated in his country. From SAMAA:
Foreign Secretary Jalil Abbas said on Friday that Pakistan has eliminated al Qaeda network from its territory, SAMAA reports.
In a briefing to the Senate's Foreign Affairs Committee, Abbas said that security forces have eliminated al Qaeda network from Pakistan's territory.
Talking about drone attacks in the tribal region, Abbas said that these attacks are not acceptable for Islamabad. He said such attacks are violation of the United Nations charter, adding Islamabad has always opposed these attacks.
Unfortunately for Abbas and his reputation, the US launched a drone strike in North Waziristan today, and killed two Arab al Qaeda operatives: Sheikh Abu Waqas, a Yemeni explosives expert, and Abu Majid al Iraqi [see LWJ report, 2 al Qaeda operatives killed in latest drone strike in North Waziristan].

Osama’s group was essentially a venture capital firm, providing funding, training, and consulting to jihad groups worldwide.
Osama’s group may or may not still be active, but the Jihad continues regardless.
it is time for Pakistan to
throw Barack Obama and
the rest of Murder Incorporated out
of their country
