Has anyone heard about Obama or the Military ordering bombing into Pakistan?

ISLAMABAD, Jan. 23 (Xinhua) -- Al least eight people were killed and many others injured in a United States drone attack in Pakistan's tribal region on Friday, private TV channel Geo reported.

The drone fired three missiles in North Waziristan tribal area bordering Afghanistan, targeting the house of Khalil, said the report, quoting a security official.

Pakistan's tribal regions have witnessed a string of cross-border missile attacks launched by U.S. drones. The Pakistani government has repeatedly protested against such attacks and called for a halt to them.

  • Obama did talk about the possibility of strikes during his campaign. As for this strike, I think it is a continuation of ongoing actions, not actually ordered by Obama.

  • This is about as much info as I can find so far. Not much has been said about it from what I can tell. I've looked at a few news sites and pretty much found the same info as at CNN.

  • He said he would do something about Pakistan if he became president. People think the wars are going to be over, WRONG. They are just beginning, he has no intentions on the troops coming home they are just going to go somewhere else.
