Madrassa religious school now that in North Waziristan is most likely a militant training camp.
why did the Taliban surround the site right after the attack was it one of there training schools???? or were the planting evidence to incriminate the US in hitting a school.

The air strike apparently targeting veteran militant Jalaluddin Haqqani, a major target for US forces, was the latest in a string of attacks on Pakistani soil that have raised tensions between Islamabad and Washington.
Security officials said the madrassa, or religious school, near Miranshah, the main town in troubled North Waziristan region, was set up by Haqqani during the 1980s "jihad" against Soviet forces in Afghanistan.
It was currently run by one of Haqqani's own commanders, Mullah Mansoor, and was recently used as a guest house for "international and local students traveling from other areas".
Since the fall of the Taliban, Haqqani has become one of the most active Taliban commanders launching attacks on international forces in Afghanistan from safe havens in Pakistan, security officials said.
His son Sirajuddin, also a leading Taliban commander, was an occasional visitor at the madrassa that was hit on Thursday, a senior security official handling tribal unrest told AFP.

The odd thing is that we can't really do anything about it. Writing your congressman is futile- they do whatever they do regardless of their constituents. No media outlet is going to give a common person a conference to discuss this, and no politician in the upper eschelon seems to be saying anything about it.
We may disagree with some facets of muslim ideology, but should we wage war based on that? We had a relatively good relationship with these people before we started showing too much dominance over their lands.
