Guess Who's Coming To Dinner?

From Breitbart:
At least four foreign terrorists died in the purported U.S. airstrike aimed at al-Qaida's No. 2 leader in a Pakistani border village, the provincial government said Tuesday.

The statement issued by the administration of Pakistan's semiautonomous tribal regions bordering Afghanistan also said that between 10 and 12 foreign extremists had been invited to the dinner at the village hit in Friday's attack.

It was the first official confirmation by Pakistani authorities that foreign militants were killed in the attack on the village of Damadola. Women and children also died, triggering outrage in this Islamic nation.

"Four or five foreign terrorists have been killed in this missile attack whose dead bodies have been taken away by their companions to hide the real reason of the attack," the statement said.

"It is regrettable that 18 local people lost their lives in the attack, but this fact also cannot be denied, that 10-12 foreign extremists had been invited on a dinner," it said.
I'm not sure why everyone in the mainstream media is willing to take the tribesmen's word on the "innocents" killed. No one outside the area actually saw the bodies; all they photographed were purported fresh burial mounds. Given that the MSM's own local stringers have openly lied to them, the willingness to take the word of hostile Paki tribesmen who were hosting a terrorist dinner party is incredible.
