As Europe Braces for Terror, US Escalates Drone Attacks in Pakistan

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

Reports of a sudden up-tick of CIA drone attacks in the Waziristan region of Pakistan this morning coincide with what U.S. officials are describing as a "credible but not specific" terror threat in Europe this week. If these reports are true, it would bring the total number of drone attacks in September to 21, the highest number of drone attacks carried out in a single month yet. Information about the European threat reportedly comes from a suspected German terrorist, identified as Ahmed Sidiqi, in U.S. custody at Bagram air base in Afghanistan. The Washington Post's Greg Miller has been following this story and joins the program with the latest.
