As CIA Drone War Deaths Increase, So Does Anti-U.S. Sentiment

by Joe Wolverton, II, Infowars:

At a conference of top Pakistani and American officials in Aspen, Colorado, Sherry Rehman, Pakistan’s ambassador to the United States, criticized the Central Intelligence Agency’s drone warfare in Pakistan, describing it as having reached the point of “diminishing returns” and contributing to the growing anti-American sentiment in the country.

“This adds to the pool of recruits we’re fighting against,” Rehman said at the Aspen Security Forum held July 25-28.

With Pakistan’s spy chief, Lt. General Zaheerul Islam is scheduled to meet with CIA Director David Petraeus at CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, next week, Rehman also added that “we will seek an end to drone strikes and there will be no compromise on that.”

Ambassador Rehman’s remarks are understandable and are backed up by data contained in a report issued by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism (BIJ). According to that document, the United States has carried out at least 337 drone strikes in Pakistan, mainly centered in the tribal areas in the northern part of the province of Waziristan.

    “According to that document, the United States has carried out at least 337 drone strikes in Pakistan, mainly centered in the tribal areas in the northern part of the province of Waziristan.”

    Ah, that would be the area from which all of the insurgents in Pakistan come and which the government of Pakistan does not control or even patrol. Seems to me that if the Pakistanis would control their own country, the US would not have to do it for them.

    Obama, “The war monger”. That is what the history books will label him as 100 years from now. “The mass murdering president” is what I call him.
