Arms smugglers destroyed in Sudan?

A few news sources have been picking up a news story which seems to indicate that unidentified aircraft carried out an airstrike on arms smugglers traveling from Sudan to Egypt, with some officials pointing to aircraft from either the US or Israel as carrying out the attacks.

Then again, many of the reports--also picked up by Reuters--have been published by Arab and Egyptian media sources, some of whom also blame the US and Israel for carrying out air attacks with cruise missiles on the World Trade Center on September 11th, so take that with a grain of salt.

The details are so vague that anything could be true--it could have been a fighter-jet with precision bombs, an unmanned vehicle, or a helicopter gunship.

Who knows, maybe the US actually pulled the F-22 out of the showroom to participate in combat. Okay, maybe not...
