This weeks Drone Strikes

This is North Waziristan in the Federally Administered Tribal Area of Pakistan. As you can tell over the last week U.S. Drone strikes have concentrated on two areas around Miranshah and Datta Khel. This area is control by the Haqqani network. Earlier this week we killed on of the Haqqani cousins. If you are wondering why the Pakistan military does not do something about this group it is for two reasons. Everytime they go into N. Waziristan they lose a bunch of troops and secondly the Haqqanis are considered good Taliban because they do not launch attacks inside of Pakistan. They harbor groups that do but they themselves do not.
