Not Exactly Pearl Harbor–but Close

Pakistanis Tell of New U.S. Missile Strike

PESHAWAR, Pakistan — Five people were killed and three wounded when a United States Predator drone fired missiles into a house in Baghar Cheena, near Angora Adda in the restive South Waziristan tribal region, local residents said Wednesday.
The residents, who brought the wounded to a hospital in the regional center of Wana, said that drones fired four missiles, two that hit a house, and the two others that landed in the mountains.
The attack occurred in the evening, as the villagers were breaking the Ramadan fast in the evening, they said.
. . . The attack came on a day when the chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff, Adm. Michael Mullen, o met with Pakistan’s army chief, Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, and Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani.
Two Japanese ambassadors were in Washington, negotiating with the State Department, while the attack on Pearl Harbor was underway.
Admiral Mike Mullen must have a pretty good idea of how they were received after the attack.
Guess that’s an oops from the Pentagon.
