This is with reference to first drone attack after new US President Barack Hussain Obama has taken oath on Jan 20. NATO forces have killed 21 innocent persons in twin strikes in North & South Waziristan on Jan 23,2009. Al-though our government had conferred HQs (Hilal-e-Quaid-Azam) on two high ranking US officials within a week in the current month, they showed no mercy. It is strongly suggested that our government should take up this issue seriously with the new administration in USA so that drone attacks are not repeated. -ENGR.
