Feel good story of the day.

(LWJ) — US Predators attacked terrorists in an area of the Pakistani tribal agency of South Waziristan that is under Taliban control. Today’s strike is the first after a nine-day-long lull.

Unmanned Predators or the more deadly Reapers fired a pair of missiles at a compound in the Wana area in South Waziristan today, killing five “militants,” according to reports from SAMAA and Xinhua.

The Wana area, in which today’s strike occurred, is controlled by Mullah Nazir, the leader of the Taliban in the Waziri tribal areas in South Waziristan. Nazir has openly supported Taliban emir Mullah Omar and al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, and wages jihad in Afghanistan. In an interview with the Asia Times, Nazir rejected claims that he opposed al Qaeda, and affirmed that he considered himself to be a member of the global terror organization.

“Al Qaeda and the Taliban are one and the same,” Nazir said. “At an operational level we might have different strategies, but at the policy level we are one and the same…. This is wrong that I am anti-al Qaeda. I am part of al Qaeda.”]
