The head of the Taliban in Pakistan, Baitullah Mehsud, was killed Wednesday by a missile strike from an unmanned drone in remote northwestern Pakistan. Taliban leaders are meeting to choose a successor, but they won’t say where because, they say, they “they fear another drone strike.” That’s good.
The situation in Pakistan is immensely difficult and our ability to influence events there is limited, but give the Obama administration credit for continuing the drone attacks that at least have made life difficult for the Taliban on its home turf.
