It appears that the U.S. missile strike in Pakistan, in an attempt to kill Al Qaida's number two guy, was all for naught, as he wasn't there. It's almost as if our intelligence is being set up. The strike killed 17 civilians. These families may have had some connection to Al Qaida, so it could be that they weren't necessarily innocent civilians. More to come. Did everyone see where groups have been purchasing large quantities of unregistered phones that can't be traced. Phones like that were used in the Madrid train bombings. Also seems that GWB added an escape clause to John McCain's bill to eliminate the torturing of prisoners. GWB's addition--unless he, himself, deems it necessary to protect the lives of American citizens.
