US drones fired at least three missiles against a home near Miramshah, North Waziristan today, killing at least nine people described by the Pakistani government as “suspected militants.”
The target’s affiliation remains unclear, as do the identities of the people inside, but the death toll has risen throughout the day and may rise further going forward.
Originally, Pakistani officials identified the house as a “compound” used by the Haqqani family. They later revised this, saying the house belonged to the Tehreek-e Taliban Pakistan (TTP). Now some officials say a group calling itself the “Punjabi Taliban” used the house, while some others are saying it was al-Qaeda’s.
The Obama Administration has ordered repeated escalations to the drone strikes against Pakistan, with upwards of 150 “suspects” killed since the beginning of the year alone. Only a handful of named militants have actually been killed.

Yep. Like to know exactly who these "militants" are. Maybe they're just guilty of throwing the drone operators a middle finger. Who's to know and, like , we can "trust" the ones doing the killing.
Its really pity to see humans as HUMAN EATING MONSTERS in the name of RELIGION.Is the religion asked them to plant BOMBS AT MOSQUES,MARKETS,GIRLS SCHOOLS ?
