"There are some very bad people who eventually are going to have a very bad day"

That day arrived... sooner rather than later:

The Pakistani Taliban is meeting to choose a new leader today after their chief appears to have died of wounds caused by a CIA drone strike, according to a Pakistani and an American official.

Hakimullah Mehsud was seriously injured in a mid-January drone attack, and the Pakistani officials have received "word of mouth" confirmation that he died in late January, as was first reported by ABC News last week.

The attack that injured Hakimullah Mehsud was part of a flurry of CIA airstrikes launched after a suicide bomber infiltrated a CIA base in Khost, Afghanistan, in late December and killed five CIA officers and two private security contractors, the deadliest attack on the CIA in more than 20 years.

Hakimullah Mehsud appeared in a video to take credit for that attack alongside the suicide bomber, a Jordanian double agent named Dr. Human Khalil al Malal al Bilawi.

After the devastating suicide bomber attacker, a CIA spokesman "vowed revenge."

"There are some very bad people who eventually are going to have a very bad day," one CIA official promised shortly after the Khost attack.

Here's hoping for more bad days for very bad people.
