"We've got to get the job done there and that requires us to have enough troops so that we're not just air-raiding villages and killing civilians, which is causing enormous pressure over there." -Barack Obama August 14, 2007
US Predator strike in South Waziristan kills 25.
This is the second predator drone attack since Obama ascended to the White House. The first occurred Jan. 23rd. These drones are launched from covert bases inside Pakistan, and Pakistan doesn't like it none too much.
"Senior officials in Pakistan's government and military, including the president, the prime minister, and the Army chief of staff, have repeatedly protested US airstrikes inside the tribal areas as violations of the country's sovereignty. The disclosure of the base puts the Pakistani officials in a difficult situation with the citizens of Pakistan."
So how do we know that the U.S. launched such an attack from covert bases inside Pakistan? Why that idiot senator Dianne Feinstein(D) - the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee - demonstrated her woeful lack of any intelligence during a hearing of the Senate Intelligence Committee by acknowledging said covert bases inside Pakistan.
She's doing the foot-in-mouth back peddle now.
Boooshitler has left the building.
