Pentagon Says Airstrikes Targeted 2 Qaeda Leaders in Afghanistan

Pentagon Says Airstrikes Targeted 2 Qaeda Leaders in Afghanistan - The New York Times: 
An official statement said the Defense Department continued to assess whether the two men, Faruq al-Qatani and Bilal al-Utabi, were killed in the airstrikes.
Peter Cook, the Pentagon press secretary, said on Wednesday night that “their demise would represent a significant blow to the terrorist group’s presence in Afghanistan.” He said the attacks came after an extensive period of surveillance over remote areas of Kunar Province.
