Suspected U.S. drone strike kills 3 in Pakistan, officials say

A suspected U.S. drone strike killed three alleged militants in Pakistan's tribal region Tuesday, intelligence officials in Pakistan said.

The suspected drone fired two missiles on a vehicle believed to be carrying militants in the area of Angoor Adda of South Waziristan, one of the seven districts of Pakistan's volatile tribal region bordering Afghanistan, two intelligence officials said.

It was the 22nd suspected U.S. drone strike in Pakistan this year, compared with 111 in all of 2010, according to a CNN count.

The intelligence officials asked not be named because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

    I am an US tax payer born in Europe. I think Pamiri is not a real Afghan like Bangash is as he does not care the civilian casualties caused in Afghanistan by US bombing.

      It would honestly be the most hilarious thing if all of your tax money went to the Defense Department.

      Not all, but 60% is going to the military arguing from the financial press. I would prefer they being used for civilian purposes and to improve the life of the ALL american people.

      If a radical Muslim wants to behead me for being a Christian I pray that God will give me the grace to show him the love of Jesus before I die.

        Paul – you are a radical christian. I suggest you to save your life instead of praying.

    USA should cut all AID and kick all terrorists from Afghanistan (seems no terrorist left in Afghanistan anymore, all are living in Pakistan for the past 7 years now ) then Pakistan will not have any $ and that's the end of Terrorists.

    Terrorists are only running for $, if no $ from USA and no $ from Afghan Drug then they are dead😀

    CUT/STOP THE F00KING AID TO STUPID TERRORIST COUNTRY PAKISTAN RIGHT NOW IF YOU WANT TO PUT AN END TO THE PAKISTANI TERRORISTS!!!

    AFGHANISTAN NEVER BEEN A TERRORIST STATE, PAKISTAN WAS/IS A TERRORIST STATE FROM THE BEGINNING !!!

      Riza – Unfortunately USA will continue to give aid to Pakistan as they are allies in the fight against AlQaeda.

      Do you have the intellectual capacity to discuss anything? Really discuss and explore new ideas? Throwing insults around is NOT a discussion.

      If you think we are all so hopeless go somewhere else where they "discuss" things the way you do.

      Hamilton- it is impossible to discuss with you. Not everyone is available to move down to your level.

      A predictable evasion made by the incompetent and corrupt. This kind of insult is how those who cannot actually think and debate try to be poseurs, and therefore make the rest of us capitulate to their self imposed superiority.

      They dump this kind of thing out rather than attempt thoughtful answers or make salient points about current events under scrutiny. They just can't do it, so they throw insults around and degrade the entire forum.
