"Missiles fired from a suspected U.S. spy plane killed seven people Friday on the Pakistan side of the Afghan border, a lawless region where al-Qaida militants are known to hide out, officials said.

The strike was the first on Pakistani territory since the inauguration of President Barrack Obama."

Now that's an interesting development.

1. No mention of who was killed. We can assume it was terrorists, or mabye it was a merchant and his family.
2. The story comes from an a source that has to keep his identity hidden because he is not supposed to talk to the media. Wow. Our source gives up secrets and violates the trust of his job and we get the scoop and leave off his name. This reporting sounds like talking to a secret source who digs through brad pitt's garbage.

The United States rarely acknowledges firing the missiles, which are mostly fired from drones believed launched from neighboring Afghanistan. What does that mean, it implies that we fired the missles but does not say it. I'm sure that it was our technology at work but this is just a strange way to put the news out there. I guess we know where they are.
