    She's as bad as Biden, and it looks like Obama will expand the war. Not good news for our already strained relationships with the nuclear Pakistan. Or the zero-heads.


    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.....

    Well, if Sen. Feinstein actually did the "open mouth - insert foot" bit, it's a definite improvement, in the approach of the usual modus operandi of the Congress.

    Usually it's the "open mouth - change feet" approach. :tonofbricks:

    Sure it's a 'slip' or a carefully planned 'leak'?

    At least loose lips are an equal opportunity disaster. She is no different than the Republican Rep who twittered his visit to the middle east.

    http://www.time.com/time/politics/article/0,8599,1878773,00.html

    Or the GOP from VA who twittered they were about to have a Democrat defect to their side...
