Uh Oh. We Made The Taliban Mad.

Oh, dear. Remember those guys who helped al Qaeda destroy the World Trade Center? We upset them when we killed a bunch of them.
The Taliban are furious about the latest apparent U.S. missile strike in Pakistan, indicating a senior militant may be among two dozen people killed, officials and residents said Sunday.
"Furious." Wow. Maybe we should send an apology cake? Please don't be mad Taliban. Can't we just calmly kill each other?

The attack Friday on the North Waziristan tribal region was believed to have killed several Arab fighters but government officials have been notably quiet.

However, two Pakistani intelligence officials said insurgents were moving aggressively in the area while using harsh language against local residents, including calling them "salable commodities" — an accusation of spying.

Yeah, go after the only people in the world who are helping you. Genius plan.
