Escaping The Predators In Pakistan

Earlier today in Kiyani Keeps Pakistan Ship Righted, I remarked that the longer range predator strikes are a reaction to Taliban and al-Qaeda movement deeper into Pakistan.

US predator drone missile strikes are reaching farther into Pakistan. This is most likely a reaction to an enemy which has been attempting to shift from under the watchful and lethal eyes of the American predators.

Just ran across this Daily Times (Pakistan) report on a deep strike in Bannu, and found a degree of verification of the logically deduced:

Taliban movement: AP reported two other intelligence officials based in Bannu as saying that the Taliban had begun moving away from the border, including districts and other settled areas, in an apparent bid to avoid the missile strikes. Pakistani officials say they are rarely warned of such attacks.

For what it's worth.
