    Taliban's Number Two Possibly Killed in US Drone Strike

    The Pakistani Taliban's deputy commander was believed killed in a U.S. drone strike along Pakistan's border with Afghanistan, according to Pakistani and U.S. officials.

    The strike, which took place early this morning, comes just days after President Obama spoke publicly about the controversial drone attacks, announcing restrictions on how and where they would be used, including in Pakistan.

    Pakistani officials said Wali ur Rehman was killed in the strike in North Waziristan, part of Pakistan's lawless tribal region along the border. A senior U.S. official confirmed Rehman was targeted and was believed dead, but said there had been no official confirmation. U.S. officials often wait for confirmation from the Taliban themselves, but so far, the Taliban have not confirmed Rehman's death.


    This is good news. People forget, we aren't just deploying drones in Pakistan because we like blowing up people halfway across the world. The purpose is to disrupt extremist activities so in the long run we can make countries like Pakistan a safer place. That is why Pakistan gives us the Intel to find guys like Wali ur Rehman, because it is in their best interests to have extremist groups removed from their country.

    Good news I guess but how many times have we heard number two has been killed. It almost seems like when you piss number one off he makes you number two, it's a death sentence.

    I figure the number three guy starts intentionally screwing things up to avoid a promotion.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear
