FLOCK OF DODOS:

Strike kills 2 Afghan tribal leaders, NATO says (Carlotta Gall, July 19, 2008, IHT)

American Special Forces troops and Afghan commandos killed two influential tribal leaders and a number of their followers in western Afghanistan in a joint airborne operation on Wednesday night, military officials said Thursday.

So, how did this work? The salafist high command was sitting around one day and decided their cult should cluster in a free-fire zone where all of our resources are concentrated rather than disperse and lay low until our attention wanders? Are they getting enough oxygen in that cave?
