Two suspected U.S. drone strikes killed 13 alleged militants in Pakistan's tribal region Tuesday, intelligence officials said.
The first strike killed nine people. Two intelligence officials said three missiles were fired Tuesday morning on the suspected hideout of militants in the Shawal area of North Waziristan, one of seven districts in Pakistan's tribal region bordering Afghanistan.
The second strike killed four people in Pakistan's tribal region Tuesday evening, intelligence officials said.
Two missiles were fired on the vehicle of suspected militants in the area Qutab Khel of North Waziristan, one of seven districts in Pakistan's volatile tribal region bordering Afghanistan, two intelligence officials said.
The intelligence officials asked not to be named because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
On Sunday, a suspected U.S. drone strike killed five suspected militants, while last week, officials said suspected drone strikes killed another 29 suspected militants in the region.
While the United States is the only country in the region known to have the ability to launch missiles from drones - which are controlled remotely - U.S. officials normally do not comment on suspected drone strikes.
another trialless execution brought to you by the Obamanator!
America does not torchure, we KILL!!
Nice! Sock it to the Taliban & Al Qaeda, one-by-one, until Osama bin's head is served on a platter!
Nice! The Taliban & Al Qaeda are feeling the heat. Sock it to them one-by-one, 'til Osama bin's head is served on a platter!
It is very nice, goat F-ers can not hide forever
Honestly Daniel,although I'm a warmongring Tea Partier I did not blog the above.Somebody's copying me,really they are!!!
More right-wing mumbo-jumbo.I never seen so many stupid people blogging in here to prove it and I suppose this friggin' Ernie Beatty's going to try to make a joke out of this too!If not him,then somebody else will.
There he goes just like I said above.That's Beatty for you.
Fak all religions! :) Let's stay focused on fakking these terrorists first; religions next!
The drones clearly dehumanise war. they make death trivial.
They certainly do BLOGGGGER and that makes me sick to my stomach! What is even more disgusting is the hipocracy of the American public.Most of the people went ballistic over the Rev.Jones' plans to burn the Coran,yet when people are being slaughtered like cattle by these godless drones,you get absolute silence!!!
Why does CNN not have a story about the Congressional Medal of Honor winner announced today? Makes you wonder if they are for the US or not.
I noticed how silent the right-wing news media has been about those 12 filthy creeps who were recently indicted for murdering Afghan civilians.Anything just to make NATO look good and that's disgusting!!!
at least this time it wasn't 30 militants killed like it always has been in every report before.
These people, from your truth of 360 degrees that were killed by our 21st century fighters, had just made the world a better place!
That wouldn't be you Ernie Beatty by any chance blogging under my name,would it?I already know how much you like this obnoxious war,so please come clean.
Thats what i heard, they are all 98 degrees, completely and utterly bent.
Ive been missing the Predator strike reports have they been missing you too?
That was very funny,Phunnie boy since you just usurped my name again.But why make a sick joke out of an obscene war where so many are suffering and dying? It's quite nauseating to say the least but that won't stop you,will it???
That's more like it! we haven't heard about Predator strikes for quite some time now and i know for sure their have been at least 10 in the last month.
Don't feel bad,Daniel.This creep just stole my ID as one can plainly see since I never posted the above.Like Larry said,anything to get a laugh out of life.
I don't believe you are the real dwight huth. I think you are funnie boy at it again you are not so smart i am on to you.
Believe me Daniel,that wasn't me who hijacked your name and posted the above.Somebody's impersonating me,honest!
Another field day for the right-wing thugs in Washington.It never ends but makes me sick.Now I suppose that this jerk who keeps on usurping my name will sooner or later try to make a sick joke out of this tragedy,too!
You again funnie boy you think you are so clever but you are not.
You are right there Dan,i totally agree.
I bet that was you Ernie Beatty,wasn't it?I guess that you don't have the nerve to admit it,of course.We're getting on to you.
"No b@stard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb b@stard die for his country."
Keep up the good work, men!
Hey folks,I didn't post that stupid blog above.I think that was Ernie Beatty who did it,the warmonger.I think he's trying to make me look bad.
He doesn't have to try very hard!
