Morphing of the "Terror Networks"

This one is quite under the radar but is still creepy and insidious and of course complete bullshit-- from last February:
CIA drone strikes that used to focus almost exclusively on al-Qaeda are increasingly spread across an array of militant groups, including Taliban networks responsible for plots against targets in the United States...
Then more recently:
U.S. intelligence has strong reason to believe that the Pakistani Taliban is actively plotting to hit interests in the U.S. and American targets overseas, a U.S. official told CNN Thursday.

The concerns about the group that authorities say directed the Times Square bombing plot are coming from multiple streams of information, including from Faisal Shahzad, the Times Square bombing suspect, the official said.
Puhlease.... "directed" that idiotic attack? They seriously expect us to believe that?

By the way, from the first piece, drone strikes are a cool $1 million a piece, and there were 118 in 2010. $118 million to kill a handful of "al Qaeda" bad guys, mostly Pakistani rebels or Taliban at best.
