Recently all major newspapers have reported that Al-Qaedas operational chief for Afghanistan and Pakistan has been killed in a US drone strike in Pakistan. I think this is yet another major triumph for the two key allies in the 'war on terror. It should be noted that the present Al-Qaeda chief was nominated after the previous chief was killed in similar fashion. On one side where this news story highlights the key importance of Pak-USA alliance in this war, it also signifies the role mutual information sharing has played between the two allies in this regard.
