AQ/Taliban Camp Struck in North Waziristan

A missile or bomb strike has hit a Taliban training camp in North Waziristan, this comes pretty closely following Mansoor “baby” Dadullah’s release of a tape threatening the US and UK with suicide bomber attacks. Total casualties are unknown (28 killed, 10 casualties reported,) but an estimated 45 assorted foreign Al Qaeda and Taliban fighters were in the camp according to local sources. The missile strike comes because of coordinated efforts from intel sources in Waziristan, drones, and very effective missiles fired from Afghanistan.

Again I will point out that not only are the Taliban heavily infiltrated, but they are also warring amongst themselves for lead. It’s entirely possible that these AQAM forces were turned in  by rival forces.

Please stop by The Fourth Rail for the fullest report.  Also H/T to Ornery Elephant for dropping this by in comments.

  1. Thanos,

    I liked some of the comments over at TheFourthRail on this that it may not be coincidence that this camp gets taken out a day AFTER the release of that jihadist training camp “Graduation Party” – those being sent out to America and other Western countries.

    Maybe this “message in a missile” will put a seed of doubt in those new recruits before they step onto a plane headed for JFK.
