The Predator planes that launch missile strikes against militants are based in Pakistan, the senator says. That suggests a much deeper relationship with the U.S. than Islamabad would like to admit.

Reporting from Washington — A senior U.S. lawmaker said Thursday that unmanned CIA Predator aircraft operating in Pakistan are flown from an air base in that country, a revelation likely to embarrass the Pakistani government and complicate its counter-terrorism collaboration with the United States.

The disclosure by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, marked the first time a U.S. official had publicly commented on where the Predator aircraft patrolling Pakistan take off and land.

  4. Another horrendous situation of our own creation.

    And now they’re discussing Hizbullah, oh my goodness, here comes another “terrorist” organization that the US is imagining it needs to vanquish, both for “our security” and of course, for “Israel.”

    This video is just plain amazing. It’s like watching two kids playing “war,” inventing new enemies as they go. Disgusting.
