Missile Kills 13 Arabs in Pakistan UPDATE: Zawahiri? Gadahn Dead Update

13 Arabs killed by a missile strike in Pakistan and they're called "suspected militants"?? Suspects maybe, but Arab fighters would mean they're al Qaeda. You know, terrorists. It's not that hard to spell. Just ten letters; three r's, two t's & s's, and a couple of vowels.

T-E-R-R-O-R-I-S-T-S. See, that was easy, wasn't it?

Sify:

Missile kills 13 suspected militants in Pakistan

Up to 13 people were believed killed Thursday in a pre-dawn missile strike on suspected Al Qaeda militants in northwest Pakistan, a local witness and media reports said....

DawnNews TV reported that 13 Arabs were killed in the attack and that the house was connected to a local religious school....

"Most of these people who were killed were of Arab origin," he said, adding that he saw nine torched bodies at the blast site.

It's Hammer Time!

Thanks to Jimbo.

UPDATE: The strike is said to have been a Predator drone, meaning it was the U.S. Let's see...Arab fighters....in Pakistan....new video from al Qaeda's #2 man Ayman al Zawahiri yesterday. While you do the math I'll start digging around for that cowbell.

Al Jazeera:

A security official said he believed the missile was
fired by US forces, who are operating in Afghanistan.

The house that was hit belonged to Sher Mohammad
Malikkheil, a Pashtun tribesman with known links to
fighters in the area.

Keep your fingers crossed, knock on wood, etc.

Oh, and a trusted source told me the other day that his source in Pakistan--who is different than the source quoted by NBC a few weeks ago--believes Adam Gadahn was killed in the Predator strike that killed Abu Laith al-Libi last month.

How come no confirmation from U.S. or Pakistani officials? Nothing much left of anybody, except for a thumb here and a finger there.

You know, this deserves it's own post.
