Delivering justice

Two successful cross-border operations yesterday. Good to hear we're becoming more agressive in moving against those responsible for the deaths and injuries of US service members and innocent civilians while hiding just across a border.

Unmanned Predator aircraft carried out a strike in South Waziristan, Pakistan near the Afghanistan border on Sunday. According to reports, senior Taliban leader Haji Omar Khan was among those killed.

And US helicopters flew members of Task Force 88 five miles over the Iraqi border into Syria where they "decaptiated" an al Qaeda network which funnels fighters, weapons, and money into Iraq. Al Qaeda leader Abu Ghadiya was killed along with his entire senior leadership.

Brett Winterble discusses these and other operations with Bill Roggio at Covert Radio today.
