What is a "good Taliban"? Other than a dead Taliban, that is
The US killed a commander loyal to 'good' Taliban leader Mullah Nazir in a drone strike in South Waziristan. Today's strike is the first in South Waziristan since mid-March.
The remotely piloted Predators or the more deadly Reapers fired missiles at a vehicle and a motorcycle in a village near Wana. Dawn reported that the strike took place in the village of Doog and killed two Taliban fighters, while Geo News said the strike occurred in Khawashi Khel and killed four fighters.
According to Dawn, Rahmanullah, "a key commander of the Mullah Nazir group and a brother of commander Malang of the same group," was killed in the strike. Nazir administers the Wana area and supports and shelters al Qaeda leaders and operatives.
Today's strike is the first in South Waziristan since mid-March. The last eight strikes have taken place in Taliban-controlled North Waziristan.
I'm sure the ISI is heart broken.
It must be depressing for the Taliban that they keep getting killed by weapons that they have virtually cannot detect or fight.
"Good Taliban" are the ones that do the killing only in Afghanistan against ISAF and in Indian kashmir.
It can include also the ones that attack religious minorities like the ahmadiya and shia inside Pakistan because they are clearly apostates and heretics.
Supply lines closed yet?
Maybe Pakistan will start losing a lot more "good Taliban" as their pride and double dealing keeps them away form the table.
For obvious reason, Pakistan can't complain about dead ISI casualties

This targeting of funerals could go far, and do some great damage to them...but how far should they go?
You think commanders and other high rankers will keep going to funerals if there is a much higher probability they will die?
