Okay, here's the thing. Never, ever, ever trust Sen. Dianne Feinstein with information about where you were last night when you were supposed to helping a friend move a desk into his apartment, or in which LOTR figurine you keep your cannabis reserves.
A senior U.S. lawmaker said Thursday that unmanned CIA Predator aircraft operating in Pakistan are flown from an airbase inside that country, a revelation likely to embarrass the Pakistani government and complicate its counterterrorism collaboration with the United States.
The disclosure by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the 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…
The basing of the pilotless aircraft in Pakistan suggests a much deeper relationship with the United States on counterterrorism matters than has been publicly acknowledged. Such an arrangement would be at odds with protests lodged by officials in Islamabad and could inflame anti-American sentiment in the country.
I would not be surprised if Pakistan decided to not invite Feinstein to it's keg kill out by the power lines next weekend.
