Taliban commander reported among the dead..

Overnite drone strike by Team America...... killed a Big Fish{tm}....

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan —The Pakistani Taliban’s second-in-command was killed in a suspected U.S. drone strike early Wednesday in the tribal North Waziristan region, two Pakistani intelligence officials and a local Pakistani Taliban commander in the region said.

An official spokesman for the insurgent group, however, said he had no confirmation of the leader’s death. “I have no such information,” Ehsanullah Ehsan said in a phone interview from an undisclosed location in the tribal region. The officials in North Waziristan, who did not want their names used, said at least four people were killed in the drone strike, including Wali ur-Rehman, a top deputy to Pakistani Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud.

And the war goes on...

2 Actually it was the most secretive bunch of assassins, terrorists and spies the world has ever not had a clue about.

3 Trying to kill the "Number 2 leader of the Taliban" is probably like trying to kill the "Number 2 leader of the Tea Party". "The Taliban" are, in many cases, individual groups that loosely share the same ideology but there might be less central coordination than many people might think.

It's kind of like looking at a colony of amoebae and trying to kill the "Number 2" organism.

4 Good...

But it's been 11 and a half freaking years. Can we at least kill Mullah Omar, Ayman al-Zawahiri, Sirajuddin Haqqani, and Hakimullah Mehsud soon?

5 Mullah Omar and Ayman al-Zawahiri are probably not in the tribal areas. They are probably hiding in mansions like Osama Bin Laden. I'm more hopeful on Zawahiri being killed than the others.

7 Something very refreshing about killing those who would kill you. I still don't know why they wish to kill me. I haven't done anything to hurt them.
