Al-Qaeda: Latest Missile Attack Bears Hallmarks Of U.S. Military

MIRANSHAH, PAKISTAN—At a press conference Monday, al-Qaeda spokesman Abu Musab al-Madani stated that last week’s missile attack on a terrorist hideout in Pakistan’s North Waziristan region bore all the hallmarks of the United States military. “While the investigation is still ongoing, we can say that the timing of the strike, the sophistication of the explosive device, and the fact that it came from a predator drone are all consistent with previous confirmed attacks by American forces,” said al-Madani, who noted that the terrorist organization had also received an anonymous tip alleging that the U.S. military was in the advanced stages of plotting one of its regular weekly attacks on al-Qaeda soil. "Additionally, the United States has already taken credit for the assault in the American media, though they have significantly underreported the number of civilian casualties.” Al-Madani went on to state that the nonexistent gunfire and ground combat that al-Qaeda had recently encountered were a distinctive hallmark of the Pakistani military.
