Mr. President, trading Taliban prisoners we would have to release soon anyway for an American prisoner is one thing, but just giving the same group that was holding that American high-tech American weapons just days later?
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan – Ten militants wiped out by a U.S. drone attack early Thursday were members of the feared Haqqani network that kidnapped U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, a senior Taliban source said.It doesn't say how many missiles we gave them, but the use of the plural makes me suspect there were at least two, probably Hellfires.
Among the dead were two senior Haqqani commanders known as “Qari Yar Jan” and “Roohullah,” the source told NBC News on the condition of anonymity...
The militants were in two trucks carrying arms and ammunition - including explosives – close to the Afghan border in North Waziristan when one of the vehicles developed engine trouble. When the convoy stopped to fix the fault, the U.S. drone fired missiles, the source said.
But wait, it gets worse:
The 10 were killed in Tabi Tolkhel, the same Pakistan village where six other suspected militants were targeted in another U.S. drone strike only a few hours earlier.Link
A Pakistani military source told NBC News that six militants killed in the first strike included four from Uzbekistan. On Wednesday, the Taliban said Uzbek militants had aided Sunday night’s deadly gun battle at Karachi airport that left at least 36 dead.
Together, Thursday’s drone strikes were the first in North Waziristan since Christmas Day, Pakistan officials said.
Assuming two missiles in that exchange, that makes AT LEAST 4 Hellfire missiles the Kenyan Muslim Athiest from Indonesia just gave to the very people who were holding Bergdahl!
We need a vote on repealing Obamacare immediately.
