BILL ROGGIO notes that contrary to claims it killed innocent civilians, the U.S. airstrike in Pakistan took down some major terrorists.

UPDATE: Robert Bidinotto says we need more "intelligence failures" like this one. And the Counterterrorism Blog has more.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Further information suggests that the strike was even more successful than the above reports indicated.

MORE: Tigerhawk reports that not everyone is happy. "The uncompromising left really should do a better job of concealing its quite obvious hope that Bush fails in every aspect of the prosecution of this war. It almost makes it hard for us to believe that they support the troops, fer Chrissakes."
