In Pakistan, suspected drone strikes kill 13

Three suspected U.S. drone strikes killed 13 people Wednesday in Pakistan's tribal region, two intelligence officials told CNN.

All three incidents occurred in North Waziristan, one of the seven tribal
districts bordering Afghanistan.

Five suspected militants died in Data Khel when a drone fired two missiles at a vehicle.

A drone in the Mir Ali area fired three missiles at a vehicle and killed four suspected militants.

And, a vehicle was targeted earlier in Miran Shah and four suspected militants were killed there as well.

Based on a count by the CNN Islamabad bureau, Wednesday's third suspected drone strike was the 87th this year compared to 52 in all of 2009.

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

    Dan in lafayette.. very well written !!! Two good posts. US tolerated for along time before they use their high technology. Taliban or al -queda did not repent, or did not want peace talk ...They want to killi more innocent. ( recent attack is the church in Iraq where more children died just like in Afghanistan. ) what Taliban want is to help al-queda. Thank god for the US, Nato. , Afghan and Pakistan army and police and civilians who help to wipe out suicide bombers from earth.

    The unruly accountable to none extremist are being nicely dealt with hovering drones. Islam has failed so is Islamic country to contain these extremist. Thanks to drone, thugs are on the run, never able to plot. We want more of them unleashed.

        Where have your society gone? Into a stunningly silent mode, what about your religion? Why are these extremist not isolated in society or polity? This shows Islam as a religion has miserably failed, at least for the others who see the ill effects of these extremist.

      I think we should be able to help more, like a "Adopt a Drone program", or "Drones for Pakis", you pay for the bomb and the US Military puts your note or post card on the side of the Bomb before they send in the drone, maybe for a small fee they could mail you the video.

      And suicide bombers and planting bombs in mosques and markets to kill as many people as possible are not disobeying God's laws? If we can kill these guys before they can carry out these kinds of attacks God would be more than happy to see 13 dead sadistic animals than the deaths of innocent men, women and children and that is why He gave US the knowledge to make such weaponry!

    Those filthy creeps who operate those ungodly drones are nothing but war criminals and should brought before a war crimes tribunal and dealt with appropriately! I know that a lot of right-wing nutjobs are going to blog in here to defend them like they do every other criminal and they're the reason this country has such a high rate of crime!

    CNN, I'm curious: how do you have a "suspected" drone strike. It is or it isn't.

    Right after your first sentence you confirm that they are, in fact, drone strikes. So what's suspect?

    • Sanity

      Well, to answer your question, a certain agency that may or may not be responsible doesn't admit that they may or may not do drone strikes, therefore they are reported as "alleged" or "suspected"

      @ Medardus- It's a Supsected Drone strike when it only kills a small number like 13 or so, it could have just as easily been a suicide vest that the Pakis accidentally exploded while giving a class on how to be a suicide bomber 😉
