Good News

It seems that the January 13th airstrike in the village of Damadola, Pakistan killed four high level al-Qaeda leaders. Among those thought to be dead is Khalid Habib.
Mr. Habib is Al Qaeda's overall operational commander in Pakistan and Afghanistan, an important post, and would be the most significant of those who might have been at the site of the attack...
It's good to know that our intelligence wasn't wrong again, and that women and children didn't die for no good reason. Small consolation to the dead and their relatives for sure, but this attack in retrospect was necessary.

Lest we forget, this war was brought to our doorsteps, and therefore we must never falter in bringing it back to theirs.
