Sadia Hussain | 11 years ago | Reply The drone attacks have been instrumental in eliminating many high-profile targets which would escape otherwise e.g. Bait-ullah Mehsud ,Naik Muhammad and others. Contrary to the perception these attacks are held in approval by Pakistan forces that provide the ground Intel.
