Nowhere to hide, as one of the US’ five most wanted al Qaeda terrorists in Pakistan recently discovered:
One thing that Ilyas Kashmiri’s death confirms beyond doubt is that the top al-Qaeda and Taliban leaders are now on the run.
We have it from credible sources that Mr Kashmiri arrived in the Laman village of South Waziristan tribal region on Friday night as part of his plans to relocate there.
His base in neighbouring North Waziristan was under threat, amid reports that the Pakistani army may launch an operation there, the sources said.
The US drone struck merely half an hour after Mr Kashmiri’s arrival in Laman. Tea had just been served, and not everybody had said their greetings yet.
That’s good intelligence work, right there.
I wonder who did it.
