US drones are based in Pakistan.
Senator Dianne Feinstein's disclosure was unusual because the US government has refused to acknowledge conducting missile strikes in Pakistan's tribal areas, a public source of tension between the two countries.
No favours done to the Pakistan government who are having a difficult enough time acting outraged in public over these strikes.

Good old senator - well done that [edit] woman. She really is somewhat of a fu . . . . . . wit isn't she?

Think she's a lady actually? But yes, f'wit.

Christ, that's stupidity at the highest level. Well done that women, here's some fairy liquid and a crowbar, now extract the US Govt.'s collective foot from it's mouth.

Hmm.. link that with the recent calls by the usual suspects (amnesty international et al) calls for prosecutions for "war crimes" linked to drone strikes, does that mean that Obama will be in the dock & forced to hand his Nobel prize back?

The basing of Predators in Pakistan was a logical progression from events of nine or ten years ago:
Daily Telegraph 28 Nov 2012 said:
A former British special forces officer ran a US-backed private army to hunt down the Taliban in Pakistan in a secret war in 2003, a new book has revealed. Lieutenant Commander Howard Leedham, an ex-Royal Navy pilot, led a 25-strong force of specially-recruited Pakistani soldiers raiding Taliban camps, hunting down kidnap victims and detaining suspected al-Qaeda militants...

Under a one-year contract, Leedham was granted use of an American fleet of seven helicopters and two fixed-wing planes to conduct anti-terrorist operations in support of local troops from a base in Quetta, capital of the restive province of Baluchistan...
Good book.

She is the Devil...

Google the relationship between her Husband and huge contracts it was given ( obviously she was involved in the decision). They were often the lowest bid, but then jacked up the cost on the taxpayer to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.

This wasn't so much a secret, it's been very well publicized, as something that was impolite to mention, like the Israeli nuke program or the Saudis funding the taliban.
