American drones have killed as many as 10 people in the first such missile strike since Barack Obama officially acknowledged the covert CIA programme.
The attack happened in North Waziristan, an area used by members of the Haqqani network to launch operations against international forces across the border in Afghanistan, according to local intelligence officials
"Two missiles were fired on a compound killing at least 10 in a house believed to be in the use of militants..."
"For the most part, they've been very precise precision strikes against al Qaeda and their affiliates, and we're very careful in terms of how it's been applied," he said in a webchat.
Daniel Pudles in his recent article ‘With its Deadly Drones, the US is fighting a Coward’s War’, Recently carried by the Guardian reports that, “the CIA, which is running the undeclared and unacknowledged drone war in Pakistan, insists that there have been no recent civilian casualties... It is a blatant whitewash... CIA claims that since May 2010, drones have killed more than 600 militants and not a single non-combatant...a report last year by the British ‘Bureau of Investigative Journalism’ showed, of some 2,300 people killed by the US drone strikes in Pakistan from 2004 until August 2011, between 392 and 781 appear to have been civilians; 175 were children.

If Pakistan were concerned they would have troops waiting for those so called militants along the borders.
If they do and cant find terrorists, I would be bombing the borders as well.
