HE STILL THOUGHT HANGING OUT WITH HIS IN-LAWS WAS A GOOD IDEA?:

U.S. Official: 'Strong Indications' Pakistani Taliban Leader Baitullah Mehsud is Dead (MARTHA RADDATZ, GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS and NICK SCHIFRIN, Aug. 6, 2009, ABC News)

"There is strong indication" that Pakistani Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud was killed in a CIA drone strike that targeted his second father-in-law's house Wednesday, a senior administration official told ABC News.

"Efforts are underway to determine for certain whether it was Mehsud, but there are hopes that it is him," the official said.

A Pakistani official confirmed the report but said they are awaiting 100 percent confirmation from DNA tests.
