Drone strike kills 6 in Pakistan

Islamabad, Pakista - A drone strike in Pakistan's tribal region on Thursday killed six suspected militants, intelligence officials told CNN.

Two intelligence officials said the suspected U.S. drone fired six missiles at a militant compound in the area of Ghulam Khan in North Waziristan, one of the seven districts of Pakistan's volatile tribal region bordering Afghanistan.

Based on a CNN tally, Thursday's drone strike was the 90th this year compared to 52 in all of 2009.

      The filthy creeps who fired those missiles from those drones need to be incarcerated. In this country we have men in penitentaries who did far less than what they did and that's ludicrous!!!
