Pre-Judging the Pakistan Air strike

Pakistan has confirmed that at least four terrorists were killed in the formerly proclaimed “botched” CIA strike of a Pakistani village. Sources have also stated that Al Zarwahri, along with 12 other top terrorists were invited to the strike location but did not show. USA Today reports: “Two Pakistani intelligence officials said Ayman al-Zawahri, Osama bin Laden's top lieutenant, had been invited to a dinner in the village to mark the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha but passed it up and sent some aides instead.”

It was reported that 14 people were killed in the Predator Drone attack but only 13 bodies were seen to be buried. It is not yet known if Al Zawahri is alive or dead but the silence of Al Qaeda’s propaganda websites, speaks volumes. As for the innocent casualties, I’m not so sure that they weren’t strategically placed by the same terrorists that they welcome and hide amongst their village. Saddam Hussein used this tactic before the bombing strikes in Iraq; He forced women and children to stay in areas that were likely to be targets of Coalition precision air strikes. Of course this tactic worked and the world predictably blamed the United States for targeting innocent civilians. That’s not to say mistakes were not made in target packaging in Iraq or Pakistan but this is a war. One thing is for sure and that is our enemies are hiding and running and their primary method of resistance has been to purposely kill innocent people. They do this because they understand anti-war activists and anti-American media around the world will predictably blame the U.S. for forcing Islamic extremists to kill innocent people. The far-left in America is in fact, a tool that Al Qaeda uses to wage a propaganda war in hopes that they can break the will of the American people.
