Rare Use Of Ground Forces Stokes Pakistani Ire, May Indicate High-Value Target

Pakistan's top security officials on Wednesday were searching for clues that a "moderately important terrorist target" may have been hit when U.S. and/or NATO forces attacked three houses in a remote part of the country's border region with Afghanistan.

As many as 15 people were killed in the early morning strike Wednesday.

This was a commando raid by U.S. special operations forces - the first known use of ground troops inside Pakistan - in an attempt to kill or capture a high value target, reported CBS News national security correspondent David Martin. Until Wednesday, all known attempts to kill terrorist leaders operating out of Pakistan had been conducted by unmanned drones.

Nah, it seems:

"There is no indication the target was al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden or his deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri, officials told Martin in Washington."
