An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
A pilotless US drone has allegedly fired a missile into a Pakistani area on the Afghan border, Pakistani government officials say.
The missile was fired into the Mohmand ethnic Pashtun tribal area in northwest Pakistan on Tuesday, but there was no word on the target or casualties, Reuters reported.
The area is where this year US-controlled Predator aircraft have struck at least four sites used by al Qaeda operatives, killing dozens of militants.
“There was an attack by a spy plane close to the Afghan border but we don’t have information about casualties or damage,” said a government official in the region who requested anonymity.
The US authorities never confirm their missile attacks on Pakistani territory, which would be an infringement of Pakistani sovereignty.
Well, jiminy crickets! We wouldn’t do such a thing. So, who’s dead? Anybody big?
