#8 Hmmm,
Zap a taliban compound and kill a bunch of them.
Zap the funeral rites and kill a bunch of them.
Zap THAT funeral and kill a bunch of them.
Zap THAT funeral and kill a bunch of them....and so on and so on and so on and....
Do you get the impression that these clowns are NOT the sharpest knife in the drawer?

#9 heh - NYT says we Zapped "at least 60"

obligatory handwringing:
Detailsof the attack, which occurred in Makeen, remained unclear, but the reported death toll was exceptionally high. If the reports are indeed accurate and if the attack was carried out by a drone, the strike could be the deadliest since the United States began using the aircraft to fire remotely guided missiles at members of the Taliban and Al Qaeda in the tribal areas of Pakistan.

#10 Just read that Frank. The NYT and BBC are weeping for these turds.

To bad they are like cockroaches and are so difficult to get rid of.

#11 Hundreds were gathered and we only got 17 of them? I suspect the toll will be much higher. In any case, we need to develop white phosphorous cluster napalm bombs just for this sort of situation.
