Fish Wrap’s Back To Calling Jihadis “Militants”

Back to the same from the NY Times

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — One of Pakistan’s most wanted militant commanders, Ilyas Kashmiri, was killed in an American drone strike in the tribal territory of South Waziristan, residents and a militant active in the area said Saturday. But Pakistani and American officials cautioned that they had not been able to confirm his death.

Mr. Kashmiri is considered one of the most dangerous and highly trained Pakistani militants, allied with Al Qaeda. A former member of Pakistan’s special forces, the Special Services Group, Mr. Kashmiri was suspected of being behind several attacks, including the May 22 battle at the Mehran naval base in the southern port city of Karachi that deeply embarrassed Pakistani officials. He has also been implicated in the terrorist attack on Mumbai, India, in 2008, in which at least 163 people were killed, including some American citizens.

Got that? A stone cold Al Qaeda member is a militant, in Fish Wrap World. Makes me feel like it’s 2001 again.

    So, we are still there and takin names? Seems rather odd for an anti-war pro-muslim president to KEEP a military death squad roaming in Pakistan (yeah, i know, drones). Wouldn’t the left expect\demand that he pull out fully from Afghanistan.. let alone keep up attacks on Pakistan that his evil anti-muslim president did before him?
