They say it was a "drone strike" in Pakistan, something to do with the CIA. Wingz, YD, anyone else, what exactly is a drone strike?

$25 Million reward for it too, talking about whether someone will try to claim it. Watch Trump try to say it was his influence that made it happen.

Drone is a pilotless little plane that has missiles on it.

He was killed in a mansion with his family.

Okay, why would they say it was a drone attack then, because they also said it was "boots on the ground" and not by a bomb? There's no way they could get his body in another instance.

It apparently happened last week. How they kept it a secret this long is amazing.

Okay, they had to check the body to make sure it was his body.....yeah, now they're saying it on ABC YD, what you said, that they've had it for days but had to check it against DNA they had already.

Imagine how many people had been involved with the attack, getting the body, confirming the identity of the body, etc. Incredible we didn't find out until just minutes ago.

This is obviously HUGE news, but I have to remain skeptical and cynical, I suppose. How will this change how safe I feel? Will there be retaliation attacks by the radical followers of this dipshit?
