She was murdered as a result of a hellfire missile hittiing her father's house when she went round for tea. The US OC of the drones falsely assumed that where she goes Mehsud would be found....and that has not been the case.
She hardly died as a shahid sipping tea and talking to her father about Mehsud not being able to eat properly these days due to his busy schedule. I doubt that she achieved "eternity in paradise", she did not die fighting and she is a woman. ....it's simply a cruel and sad way to go.
(You have to open all available comments to find it.)

You just can't make things like this up. Holy Cow.
Of course Robert Spencer, the sites main writer, is a right-wing hatemonger to some. Keep in mind that the modern definition of a hatemonger is one who tells a politically incorrect truth and we cannot let the politically correct thought police obscure the truth.
Also collateral damage and deaths is an inescapable reality. They are horrible and we must minimize them, but we will never eliminate them, except by the absolutely impossible feat of eliminating war (dream on dreamers!). The Jihadists never seem to even try to minimize collateral deaths from their attacks because they don't care. The more deaths the better. They complain about it to us because they know we do care even if we can't totally eliminate it.
Update: This writer seems almost to be a parody of a Jihadist and I considered the possibility that it was meant as satire, but his initial comments in the thread convince me otherwise.
And killing the Pakistan Taliban commander's INNOCENT wife by crusader drone missile is not going to help matters either. It's bad enough that they cannot sleep at night due to the drones and sleep during the day in a different bed and different locations.
You can bet that Baitullah Mehsud is not going to take this lying down. He loved his wife very much and I think it was her father who had tried to broker that Sharia for weapons down deal in teh 1st place.
