I noted yesterday that there was an intriguing military operation in the Pakistan-Afghanistan border region which had the earmarks of an armed Predator attack. Today ABC News is reporting we may have taken out a single high valued individual:
Pakistani intelligence sources say they believe a “high-value” al Qaeda target was killed in a missile strike yesterday in the country’s tribal region bordering Afghanistan.
U.S. officials said there was no indication that the target was Osama bin Laden or his deputy Ayman al Zawahri, but one senior official told ABCNews.com the strike was aimed at one particular figure.
We don’t know whether we got him yet, we are sorting through it,” the official said, indicating the intended target was a top leader of the terror group.
It could be tied to the fact we supposedly nabbed Bin Laden’s security coordinator earlier this month. I pray we are going to hear some seriously joyous news before the weekend.
