The CIA is secretly using an airbase in southern Pakistan to launch the Predator drones that observe and attack al-Qaeda and Taleban militants on the Pakistani side of the border with Afghanistan, a Times investigation has found.The Pakistani and US governments have repeatedly denied that Washington is running military operations, covert or otherwise, on Pakistani territory — a hugely sensitive issue in the predominantly Muslim country.
What is it with “Times” newspapers? First the New York Times publishs details about how were are tracking terrorist funding and now the Times of London thinks it would be marvolous if everyone in the world knew that we are basing Predator drones out of the base in Pakistan.
If the Democrats were so worried about who “leaked” the name of Valerie Plame, who was a CIA analyst at Langely, maybe they should find out who is blabbering about our secret bases to the press.
Oh, Senator Feinstein? Oops! I guess there’s no chance that anything would happen to her even if she were caught faxing the NSA intercepts to Islambad.
Can these people possibly be any dumber?
