PESHAWAR, Pakistan (Reuters) - A pilotless U.S. drone aircraft fired a missile in northwest Pakistan on Saturday, killing 13 people including some foreign militants, security officials and residents said.
Hours later, Pakistani Taliban militant leader Baitullah Mehsud claimed responsibility for a shooting at a U.S. immigration center in New York in which a gunman killed 13 people, saying it was revenge for U.S. drone attacks in Pakistan.
U.S. officials were not immediately available for comment about Mehsud's claim, but Pakistani security analysts dismissed it as a publicity stunt.
The leader of Pakistan's Taliban, Baitullah Mehsud, is dead from kidney failure, sources told CNN.
Baitullah Mehsud speaks to reporters in the tribal district of South Waziristan near the Afghan border in May.
The Pakistan government blamed Mehsud for the December 27, 2007, assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.
News reports that Baitullah Mehsud, the amir of the Tehreek-e Taliban Pakistan is dead, apparently due to natural causes. Mehsud had been sick in recent days and reportedly slipped into a coma.
My point is that someone claiming to be Mehsud according to Pakistan intelligence claimed to be responsible for the attack in Binghamton or didn't you read the article?
So, now we are even, innocent immigrants in America are killed and Pakistan had it sovereignty violated because it is harboring a man who claims the ability to launch attacks inside the United States, which he may have done.
This is war and your feelings will be hurt and never think for one minute that anyone here cares about what is happening to the Taliban in rural Pakistan.
My concern is why won't US authorities come to terms with the way the enemy fights, so that we can be more effective in destroying them.
