As I write this, various news reports coming out of Pakistan claim that up to 80 people at a Pakistani funeral were killed after missiles were fired from a U.S. drone.  According to Pakistani intelligence officials and witnesses the attack occurred in the village of Najmarai in the Makeen district of South Waziristan on Tuesday.

"Three missiles were fired by drones as people were dispersing after offering funeral prayers for Niaz Wali," a Pakistani intelligence official told the Reuters news agency. The funeral was being conducted for six victims of an earlier Tuesday drone attack.

A spokesperson for the U.S. Department of War claimed, “There are no US military strike operations being conducted in Pakistan." But since the beginning of the year there have been more than a score of these non-existent U.S. drone attacks launched within Pakistan.  The drone attacks were begun under the Bush regime and the attacks have been increased by the Obama administration.
