Pakistan probes deaths of alleged Canadian militants


www.theglobeandmail.com

Diplomats in Pakistan are investigating a report that two Canadian militants were killed by a possible U.S. missile attack that blew up a house in a remote tribal region of the country.

Canadian Foreign Affairs officials, in conjunction with other agencies, are working with Pakistan to determine the identities of men killed Saturday after villagers said they saw U.S. Predator drones in southern Waziristan.

As many as five suspected militants died in the attack, including two Arabs, Pakistan-based reporters said.

Alledged being key here, but still worrysome that Canadians may be fighting each other in Afghanistan.

Something for our dysfunctional government to ignore with all due haste until after the slam-dunk federal election alledged to be coming in October?

This failure of the CSIS to keep tabs on Canadians travelling into debatable areas such as Pakistan needs to be corrected, imo. The timing of this incident couldn't be worse, being so close to the anniversary of 9/11.

From the same article:


Last month, Ted Gistaro, a senior U.S. analyst of terrorist threats, warned that al-Qaeda operatives from “North America” are training in Pakistan to attack the United States.

In a speech in Washington on Aug. 12, Mr. Gistaro suggested that Canadian passport holders are among the biggest threats.

“Al-Qaeda has strengthened its safe haven in Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Areas,” Mr. Gistaro said.

Funny how this just now becomes an issue. The Canadian press ignores the story until there is potentia proof coming out of the tribal areas.
