Tracking the US air campaign in Pakistan


The Long War Journal has created two new pages to keep track of the information on the US air campaign against al Qaeda and the Taliban sheltering in Pakistan’s lawless northwest. The pages will be updated after each airstrike or when new data becomes available.

Charting the data for US airstrikes in Pakistan, 2004 – 2010 will track the number of US airstrikes inside Pakistan per year; civilian casualties vs.Taliban/al Qaeda casualties; the distribution of strikes by tribal agencies; the territories targeted; and the distribution of senior al Qaeda and Taliban leaders killed in territories managed by individual Taliban commanders.

Senior al Qaeda and Taliban leaders killed in US airstrikes in Pakistan, 2004 – 2010 will list the Taliban and al Qaeda leaders killed in each attack, and the date they were killed. So far, the strikes have killed 15 senior and 15 mid-level al Qaeda leaders, and 4 senior and 5 mid-level Taliban leaders
