Reading is fundamental

Sullivan, this morning:

Some encouraging news from the terror war: the U.S. is now raiding into Pakistan to pursue the Taliban and al Qaeda…

Robert Pelton, 2003, as written on page 43 of “Licensed to Kill“:

Officially, the Pakistani Tribal Police has jurisdiction over the tribal areas on their side of the mountains, while the U.S. military handles things on the Afghan side.  Unless my GPS is wrong however, this American outpost, armed by Afghans, is technically about five miles inside Pakistan.

So basically what they did was take the plausible deniability they paid those contractors — with our money — for, and blow it to smithereens.  Anybody got a receipt?
