The Washington Post’s Joby Warrick reports that the CIA has made considerable progress in attacking Al-Qaeda in Pakistan, with 8 top leaders killed by US airstrikes since July:

Bruce Hoffman, a terrorism expert and Georgetown University professor, said the agency’s tactics appear to be cutting dramatically into al-Qaeda’s top ranks with strikes deep into a lawless border region that insurgents long regarded as a sanctuary.

“It is a stunning testament of the accuracy of intelligence that the United States is obtaining,” Hoffman said. “Either we have built up an impressive network of sources that facilitates such precision targeting, or the Pakistani authorities are cooperating big-time.”
