US continue to bomb Pakistan and kill citizens - winning hearts and minds

Whilst the mild mannered US envoy Denis Holbrooke was berating the Paistani Government An unmanned Predator strike aircraft fired a Hellfire missile at a vehicle in a bazaar in the town of Gangi Khel near Wana. It is claimed by the CIA regional mouthpieces that 4 Taliban and al Qaeda operatives are thought to have been killed in the strike and 4 civilians are said to have been wounded but no senior Taliban or al Qaeda leaders have been reported killed.

A Jan. 23 Predator attack hit a Taliban compound in the town. Ten al Qaeda and Taliban fighters were reported killed in that attack.

Mullah Nazir, a Taliban chieftain and former rival and now ally of Pakistani Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud is suposed to command the area of Gangi Khel.

This is not their first shot at Nazir who was said to have been (unsuccesfully) targetted Nazir and Tahir Yuldashev, the leader of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, in a strike near Wana on Nov. 7. Nazir was claimed wounded in the attack. Yuldashev's status is still unknown, but it is believed he survived the attack.

This brings up the score card for attacks to the 3rd this month and the 14th inside Pakistan this year. The US targeted a Haqqani Network compound on April 4 and a Taliban camp in Arakzai on April 1.
