Pakistan Strikes Al Qaeda in Waziristan

This is for those who say we need to go after the terrorists in Pakistan. From Bill Roggio:

As the security situation in North Waziristan and the greater
Northwest Frontier Province, the Pakistani military
launched an assault on two "militant" bases near
the Afghan border. The military struck two Taliban and al Qaeda bases in the
village of Daygan with artillery and Cobra gunship helicopters. "No ground
forces were used in the assault," the Associated Press reported. The attack,
which occurred 10 miles west of Miramshah, lasted four hours.

And my favorite quote-"The U.S. is believed to have been behind the bulk of these strikes, with the Pakistani government providing cover for the operations."
