Hi all. Long time reader, first time poster so be easy on me.
Hidden amongst all the other current events I came across this article. They touched on it very briefly this morning on the news. My hunch is that they got Bin Laden (of course if he exists...and is still alive, etc). I wonder if they are waiting for a news release just before elections...Either way the context of going into another sovereign nation to pursue 'terrorists' scares me.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (CNN) -- U.S. military forces launched airstrikes on a Pakistani village early Wednesday morning, two Pakistani military sources told CNN.

The U.S. conducted airstrikes on a village in the border area of North Waziristan early Wednesday, sources said.

The strikes occurred about 1 a.m. in a village in North Waziristan, a mountainous region of northwest Pakistan near the Afghanistan border, a Pakistani military source said.
U.S. military sources could not immediately be reached for comment.
The sources said the U.S. military launched two or three missiles that struck at least one home. The sources did not have any information on casualties or injuries.
U.S. attacks in Pakistan have become a controversial issue in recent weeks.
In July, President Bush approved U.S. incursions in Pakistan to go after insurgents without consulting first with Islamabad.

Nevermind, I found it.

I think Pakistan's new friend China won't like this...

I just love US policy in bombing villages to allegedly catch a bad guy. The children that are blown apart, or their parents are inconsequential nonentities that should not be accorded world rights, though they are covered and protected by international law. Imagine Osama bin Laden taking over a stadium filled with 3000 people. Now, hmmm.... what to do. Well, bomb that sucker eh! Yeah that makes sense!
