AP | Pakistan: US missile attack kills 4 in northwest

26 May

By RASOOL DAWAR, Associated Press

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — An American drone fired two missiles at a bakery in northwest Pakistan Saturday and killed four suspected militants, officials said, as the U.S. pushed on with its drone campaign despite Pakistani demands to stop. This was the third such strike in the country in less than a week.

Drone attacks in Pakistani tribal areas where Afghan and other militants have found refuge are considered a key tactic by U.S. officials in the war against al-Qaida and its Taliban supporters. But many Pakistanis resent the strikes, which they consider an affront to their sovereignty.

Two Pakistani intelligence officials said the latest attack took place in Miran Shah, the main town in the North Waziristan tribal region.

The officials said the victims were buying goods from a bakery when the missiles hit. Residents were still removing the debris, officials said. All of the dead were foreigners, but the officials did not have any information on their identities or nationalities.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media. The U.S. rarely talks publicly about the covert CIA-run drone program in Pakistan.

Drone strikes have become an increasingly contentious issue between Washington and Pakistan. Pakistan’s parliament has demanded the U.S. end all attacks on its territory.

Feinstein: TSA Molestation “Very Necessary,” Americans Need to Be “Sympathetic” To Groping

Senator Feinstein wants you to shut up and spread ’em.

Feinstein: The Gropings Will Continue

I’m always surprised at how my disdain for this woman continues to grow.

The government is milking this C.I.A. leak for all it’s worth.  It is serving many purposes:  Reiterating the terrorist threat, shaming Americans into continuing to put up with more TSA molestation, striking more fear into people who leak information or whistle-blow, and showing off the government’s amazing ability to thwart it’s own plots.

Feinstein says the public “hasn’t been sympathetic” to the poor TSA non-officers molesting us, and says she doesn’t mind the pat-downs. Other government officials do mind the groping, and have in fact described the procedures as molestation.  After speaking out about the thug agency,  the officials have found themselves further targeted by TSA bullies with even more aggressive pat-downs than before, leaving some of the officials with sore testicles.

I want to stress:  The government initially said there were NO plans for the bomb except that the attack was supposed to happen around the anniversary of Bin Laden’s death, May 2.  There was no exact date, no location chosen, no plane tickets purchased, and the government specifically said there was no risk of it being taken aboard a plane They also said we were never in any danger.

IMPORTANT! Al Qaeda Bomb Plot: Would-Be Bomber Was CIA Informant; Break Down of US Terrorist Involvement

Al Qaeda Bomb Plot: Would-Be Bomber Was CIA Informant

Huffington Post

USA Today

In this video  from USA Today, they say the FBI is examining the bomb, which was an upgrade to the device used in the underwear bomb “attack” in 2010.  They also say  “it is not clear who made the bomb,” and suspect it was the mastermind responsible for other Al Qaeda bomb creations.  They said they didn’t know the identity of the would-be (US-employed) bomber, meaning they were “getting better at disrupting these plots” and that no airplane tickets had been purchased, nor had a place for the attack been decided.  Today it is announced it was our CIA.

Exactly what kind of  “plot” did the US so brilliantly “foil” if a plot really had yet to exist?  They merely had a bomb given to them because they did what they do best: lie.  Of course it’s likely they were the ones who made it, considering that they have done it in the past.   Our government has done this over and over (New York Times), and then bragged about their competence.  Listen to the blatant lie told by Hilary Clinton, that “the plot itself indicates that these terrorists keep trying, uh, they keep trying to devise more and more perverse and terrible ways to kill innocent people.”  If it was our C.I.A. informant who had the bomb in his possession, and there was never a threat of it getting onto a plane, why did officials need to announce that it would not have been detected at the airport by a metal detector because it contained no metal,  the new body scanners at SOME airports may not have detected it, and the only guaranteed way to find it would have been through the groin groping?  What security procedures will be next, cavity checks for all?  Or are they trying to improve public confidence in government’s ability to stop terrorists before they get on airplanes because they may make airport procedures less criminal?
