U.S. Predator Drone Strike Kills Two Jihadis In South Waziristan, Pakistan

Okay, you aren't imagining anything when you think it's been forever since I've reported a drone strike from inside of Pakistan - it HAS been nearly forever and that is why I think this one must be significant.  First off, just the fact that it's been so long tells me that the target of this strike that killed two had to be too important to pass up.  And secondly, this was in South Waziristan - 90% of the American drone strikes happen in NORTH Waziristan - I'm guessing that in a day or two we are going to find out that we just got a hugely important al Qaeda or Taliban.  I could be wrong but I just have a feeling.

The story comes from DAWN.
