Al Qaida paranoid of Predator Drone Attacks

For good reason too. Since the start of the year approximately 16 Predator Drone strikes have killed around 268 terrorists in Pakistan's North Western region where the taliban and al Qaida are holed up. So far in July over 70 terrorists have been killed by Predator Drones.

The latest Predator Drone strike possibly tagged a taliban leader and a Predator Drone attack in June just missed Baitullah Mehsud by hours.

Just the sound or sight of the Predator Drones causes panic. So much so that al Qaida terrorists have violently turned on one another out of confusion and mistrust.

From Fox News

A new book published by Al Qaeda shows that the terrorist group is under intense pressure and in "deathly fear" of U.S. counterterrorism efforts in Pakistan, terror experts say.[...]

The book accuses some in Al Qaeda's ranks of being spies who provide intelligence, including information about Al Qaeda camps and safehouses, to U.S. forces. According to the book, these "Muslim spies" have allowed the U.S. to use its Predator drone campaign to paralyze Al Qaeda leadership.

"It would be no exaggeration to say that the first line in the raging Crusader campaign waged by America and its allies against the Muslims and their lands is the network of spies, of various and sundry sorts and kinds," says the book, translated by the Washington-based Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI

"Their effects are seen: carnage, destruction, arrest, and pursuit, but they themselves remain unseen, just like Satan and his ilk who see us while remaining unseen."
