Air strike in Pakistan

From what I understand, we struck inside Pakistan from Afghanistan on Tuesday and took out a top Al Qaeda operative. If it really was us, then the silence from the world is interesting. Sending more troops and equipment to Afghanistan might allow us to "sneak" in and really start taking apart Al Qaeda in their safe havens.

Bill Roggio has a couple of posts up in regards to the air strikes.
