9 suspected militants killed in drone strike in Pakistan

A drone strike on a militant hideout in northwestern Pakistan early Tuesday killed nine suspected militants, two Pakistani intelligence officials told CNN.

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the drone fired four missiles at the hideout in the Mir Ali area of North Waziristan, one of seven districts in Pakistan's volatile tribal region bordering Afghanistan.

    Many mistakenly believe that America's Homeland Security system, the largest prison buildup in US history, was for 10's of thousands of "terrorists" President George Walker Bush promised to drag to justice. They are not.

    Jewish men were already enslaved building underground facilities and slaved in weapons factories as the 1936 Olympics were being hel in Munich and Hitler was being touted as a man of peace by world leaders. They were slaved and then taken to the camps to be murdered using nazi Bayer AG ZYlon B odorless gas.

    Long before WWII, Jewish women and children were taken from their ghetto homes and sent to nazi Bayer AGs corporate concentration camp to be expirimented on using advanced genetics and pharmacology. 8 nazi doktors were prosecuted for this very thing at Nuremburg warcrime tribunals.

      The truth of what??
      That Nazi Germany started out altruistically, by Hitler's account?
      He killed his citizens.
      You advocate doing the same thing.
      That's your truth.

    Drones for domestic use is going to happen unfortunately. Indications have been there for sometime. What @Philip says is not far fetched.

      Well, sorry, saywhat, I do not believe that the US is going to target our citizens and I would like to know exactly in what capacity they would be used in...if for surveillance of the border, that is one thing, but for scoping out and killing our citizens, not so much.
      Saywhat, if drones are going to be employed against out own citizenry, do you think it wouldn't be a leap of logic that our citizens will start arming ourselves even further?
      This bs hysteria has to stop.

    Gang bangers might be citizens of yours, but they aren't citizens ours.
    When you operate outside of the law, you don't even have the right to privacy anymore. You give-up your rights as an American citizen when you terrorize US, even financially. (worshy fraudulently claiming disability, etc)
    America WILL be rid of our hardened criminal element. It's part of our economic recovery plan.
    And it wasn't my idea to build 160 extra prisons after 9/11, Banasy. So can it already. Stop putting the blame on me. I am NOT a member of a Chicago street gang. It's THEM you should be telling to leave America. NOT me. sheesh

      Actually, if they were born in the United States, then yes, they are citizens of the US.

    Two US citizens suspected of being terrrorists were droned-down in Yemen last year, and as reported by CNN here and by President Obama's direct order. Making Obama the first president EVER to order assassinations of US citizens.
    What? It's ok to kill Americans suspected of terrorism as long as they leave the country first? Get a clue.
