Drone strike kills 3 in Pakistan

Three suspected militants were killed in a suspected a U.S. drone strike targeting a militant hideout in Pakistan's tribal region Wednesday, intelligence officials tell CNN.

Two intelligence officials say two missiles were fired on the hideout in the Darpa Khel area of North Waziristan, one of the seven districts of Pakistan's tribal region bordering Afghanistan.

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

    abcd, I do not know who's side your on but the more of these drone attacks the better off we are, because of their accuracy of killing known terrorists in the tribal areas of Pakistan in which Pakistan's government knows that they plan attacks even against their government as well as the western world! I hope Obama steps up these drone attacks even more!

    Qari Ziauddin, the Taliban shadow governor killed --- How can they find a meaningless person, but can't find bin Laden after 8 years?

      Osama bin Laden is much more frightened of the Predators than the idiot believers who he convinces to risk their lives in following his instructions, so Bin Laden hides in a much deeper hole in the ground. Sadam Hussein was only hiding about 3 meters under ground when he was dragged from his hole asking to negotiate. Osama Bin Laden hides much deeper and is closer to all the demons of hell that he speaks with every day and night.
