WASHINGTON, D.C. - 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.
At a hearing, Feinstein expressed surprise at Pakistani opposition to the ongoing campaign of Predator-launched CIA missile strikes against Al Qaeda targets along Pakistan's northwest border.
"As I understand it, these are flown out of a Pakistani base," she said of the planes.Nice going senator.
Does anyone really think that Feinstein is on OUR side in the War On Terror?
These faux patriots (and it is always democraps don’tchaknow) continue to do this because no legal authority will try them and shoot them at dawn as they deserve to be dealt with during wartime.
News Flash: The Committee just voted 8-7, along partisan lines, to rename itself the Stupid Idiot Committee.
Isn’t it OK to put down rabid animals ????
Can’t mention War On Terror anymore. That concept no longer exists.
That’s a really bad one. These Predators have been one of our most successful ways to kill top terrorists. And now it’s likely the program will end.
>>>Does anyone really think that Feinstein is on OUR side in the War On Terror?
Is any Liberal Demonrat?
Funny - my spellcheck on this computer offers up ‘democrat’ as the first alternative to ‘demonrat’ :)
You must not have received the memo: We're not allowed to use the term "War On Terror" any more - it is over - kaput - due to hope and change and the fact that the world loves us.
Besides, the only state secrets being protected are:
1) in a vault in Hawaii, and
2) the unaudited $750M+ presidential campaign war chest.
I am so sick and tired of these so-called “legislators” who are supposed to be protecting the Constitution deliberately exposing national security secrets. God forgive me, please, but I wish we could just take these people out behind the Capitol building and put a bullet in their heads.
I have heard, from someone who is in a position to know, that the woman really is not all that bright.
She was just in the right place(CA) at the right time....
Painful to live in the ‘golden state’ these days....
So what prison is she sleeping in tonight?
I’m from California. I love my state. But I hat my two Seantors. They are a total embarassment. Our so-called Republican Governator is too. But at least I have a fine congressman in Gary Miller.
See here earlier post:
Nice job, America. You really know how to pick 'em. I can hear the whole cemetery above Pointe-du-hoc in Normandy groaning right now.
( 8(|) DOH!!!
A well known computer columnist was embarrassed when his nationally published column contained an error inserted by Microsoft Word. The "auto-correct" feature changed a single word. It was spelled correctly. He intended to comment about "compiling software". It was printed as "copulating software". Many of us experience that problem daily :-(
Hopefully she was mistaken, maybe even misled.
In any event, I wouldn't be telling her anything else, now that she's shown she can't keep her yap shut.
That's the way it works. If she asks about something specific, they have to tell her. But they don't have to volunteer anything. Although her position as chair of the intelligence committee makes that a bit awkward.
How can someone who thinks a semiautomatic is an assault weapon be on, let alone chair of, the intelligence committee.
“I have heard, from someone who is in a position to know, that the woman really is not all that bright.”
Funny you should mention that. I heard the same thing about Barbara Boxer too.
That’s ok. We all know how seriously the new administration takes national security.
So when someone detonates a suitcase nuke in DC during the State of the Nation address a few years from now, there will be a silver lining: we’ll be able to start over.
“She was just in the right place(CA) at the right time....”
Her main talent is the ability to snag a succession of rich husbands;)
This stupid bitch needs to be punched in the face.
So, what level of classification was this little tidbit, and what sentence could be expected if a peasant was convicted of leaking such info?
Apparently, many Dims don’t know squat about Opsec
What else would you expect from a Chicom?
I am increasingly hard-pressed to believe that any democrat is on our side anymore. She might be chastised mildly for violating security regulations, but I seriously doubt that the democrats in the senate will give her much grief, nor the democrat in the white house, either. If she has a husband, he might whine at her a little, but not much, or she might have him charged with violating the vagina monologue or something.
I also explained that the penalty for unauthorized disclosure could be a penalty of $5000 and up to 5 years in prison once they "leak" was investigated and the disclosure was evaluated.
Of course the DIMBULBs wouldn't understand what I just said and they don't give a damn since they are above the law!
Mr. Hussein Obama doesn’t care that this was uttered. This will give him an even better reason to withdraw from Afghanistan. A place where we recently upped our presence. Hell, Patrick “I’m really a Traitor” Leahy is STILL a U.S Senator after his intransigence/treasonous behavior from many years ago as a Senator. I believe they only scolded the dirtbag and sent him back to the Senate. He is also a wretched and smarmy human being as is Di-Fi, some people can’t be helped,though should be jailed at the very least.
I just don’t understand why these people undermine and seemingly hate their own country.
Please, don’t apologize for wishing that. I wish it everyday. It’s what they deserve.
She gave out critical information and screwed the police in their efforts to catch Richard Ramirez (The Night Stalker) also. She was mayor of Sodom City at the time.
She’s stupid and she doesn’t know when to shut her trap.
Where is the outrage?
Where is the defenders of the Constitution?
Where are the ones who will stand for America!
There will be no outrage.
There is no constitution.
Soon there will be no America....at least as it was meant to be.
Just so people get it straight:
Hmmmm ..?? Why is it that whenever the dems are in charge of this particular committee - THEY CANNOT KEEP THEIR MOUTHS SHUT ..?? Leahy did the same thing .. they nicknamed him “Leaky Leahy”.
Egads .. I think this idiot wants to run for CA Gov .. but I hope this boo-boo will keep that from happening.
War on Terror is 100% bogus.
Whatever happened to hanging traitors ?
