Strike nets Taliban leaders
A U.S.-led coalition strike on a militant training facility in Afghanistan's borderlands with Pakistan killed five suspected extremists, including senior Taliban leaders, the U.S. military said Saturday.The Taliban continue to take significant losses in Afghanistan. If they continue to fight in their current fashion they risk annilihation. They have demonstrated poor strategic and tactical skills and coallition intelligence appears to be making it more difficult for them to melt into the mountain side hidey holes.
The military said that "key senior leaders of the Taliban network" were among the five dead in the strike late Friday on the site at the remote Qal'a Sak village in Helmand province.
No identities or precise numbers of the Taliban leaders killed were released. The military said the Taliban commanders have carried out attacks against coalition and Afghan army forces as well as Afghan officials and civilians.
