ISLAMABAD - The U.S. faces the challenge of quickly establishing alternative facilities from which to launch drone aircraft inside Afghanistan after Pakistan ordered U.S. personnel and hardware out of a base believed to have been used in the past for CIA drones, two senior Western defense officials tell CBS News.

Time to save a little aid money.
Considering that US drones are striking targets inside Pakistan, I consider this move as hardly surprising. In fact I’m more surprised that we had drones based in Pakistan at all. (I know... different drones; different mission profiles)
Bomb these terrorist-supporting SOBs back into the stone age.
“Time to save a little aid money.”
Agreed. Not another cent should we send to the ungrateful wretches.
Remember how Obama was going to improve relations w all these countries?
No media attention on massive failures by Obama and Hilary. And losing Pakistan to China and Al Queda is major. But all Obama cared about was being able to say “Bin Laden” as his only success. All that should have been kept quiet.
Cut off the $1B+ our taxpayers are giving them, immediately!
Time to put these crap heads on the terror list and warn Nukes will be taken out.
Finally, the msm is waking up to the fact that Pok-y-ston was, is, and always will be our enemy.
They do know the consequences, right?
Is that a world wide movement calculated to isolate US?
No need to divulge details. One day, his head could have just magically appeared on a pike outside the U.S. Embassy in Kabul and we could have said "Gee, I wonder who could have put it there? Maybe there is a rift among Al Qaida."
The helicopter wreck in the compound could have made this a bit more complicated. But it would still pale in comparison with the lies told to get BO elected.
Yeah great words and very grave time.....Still is that time eh?
...so just keep on a'truckin' back to the good ol' USA.
The Arabs do not trust this scum either,we should not be there NOR should our money.
How long do you think it will be before China and al Qaeda are given full access to the airport?
Didn’t candidate Obama promise to bomb Pakistan if they didn’t toe (tow?) the line?
(sorry about the spelling, I don’t know if the phrase deals with keepin within a line or pulling on a line, freeper input welcome)
The expression is "toe the line", as in getting ready for a race or track event. It has come to connote "toe the party line".
At least that has its meaning over most of my 85 years.
I was having flash backs to my days in the navy, “hey you, tow that line”
It occurred to me it may actually be related to running a race but I was confused, thanks for the input.
We haven't used Shamsi for some time. BTW, the landing strip at Shamsi was originally built for rich Arabs to fly into for hunting vacations, including UBL and his family.
