THE discovery of three American soldiers among the dead in a suicide bombing at the opening of a girls’ school in the northwestern Pakistan town of Dir last week reignited the fears of many Pakistanis that Washington was set on invading their country.
What are the special op soldiers doing at an all girls school??
What are the special op soldiers doing in Pakistan?
The discovery of the dead US soldiers revealed that America’s shadowy war in Pakistan not only involves drones but also small cadres of special operations soldiers.
It has now emerged that a suicide bomber rammed into the vehicle carrying the Americans. This suggests the bomber had inside information.
A suicide bomber, with inside information?
One of those killed was Sergeant Matthew Sluss-Tiller, 35, the father of a three-year-old daughter. His mother, Jane Blankenship, said her son had been in Pakistan on a civil affairs mission and had grown a beard for it.
The sergeant grew a beard for the mission, are we to assume, he also dressed in Pakistani type clothing?
The more unstable the environment is in Pakistan, the more justification there is for the American presence.
So now I am wondering Did the special ops soldiers groom the suicide bomber? To bomb the school? Did the groomed suicide bomber then turn the tables on his handlers?

America’s Silent War In Pakistan Unmasked
I am just putting up the highlights, read the entire article at the link.
-The slain US soldiers were part of a 100-member strong special American military training unit which was dispatched to Pakistan in 2008
-The military training program was never officially announced by Pakistan
-In the beginning, the American military trainers confined themselves to training compounds due to security concerns in Pakistan. However, they had now started accompanying Pakistani troops on special guerrilla operations against the Taliban.
-Pakistani press reports indicated that the American soldiers were part of a $100 million Pentagon-funded training program
-Ominously, part of the money doled out to Pakistan’s mercenary army by the Pentagon is for what United States Special Operations Command (USSOC) calls Foreign Internal Defense (FID) a key pillar of Special Forces' Unconventional Warfare doctrine.
Hmmm, what on earth could unconventional warfare be?
El Salvador Option:
Unconventional or irregular warfare is conducted "by, with, or through surrogates." According to Unconventional Warfare doctrine: Irregulars, or irregular forces, are individuals or groups of individuals who are not members of a regular armed force, police, or other internal security force. They are usually nonstate-sponsored and unconstrained by sovereign nation legalities and boundaries. These forces may include, but are not limited to, specific paramilitary forces, contractors, individuals, businesses, foreign political organizations, resistance or insurgent organizations, expatriates, transnational terrorism adversaries, disillusioned transnational terrorism members, black marketers, and other social or political "undesirables." (Unconventional Warfare, Defense Department, September 2008, p. 1-3)I am still left with the question did the US special ops groom, create, handle the suicide bomber?
