AND THE OTHER CA SENATOR'S SUPPOSED TO BE THE DUMB ONE (via Glenn Dryfoos):

Feinstein comment on U.S. drones likely to embarrass Pakistan (Greg Miller, February 13, 2009, LA Times)

A senior U.S. lawmaker said Thursday that unmanned CIA Predator aircraft operating in Pakistan are flown from an air base in that country, a revelation likely to embarrass the Pakistani government and complicate its counter-terrorism collaboration with the United States.

The disclosure by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), 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 over Pakistani opposition to the campaign of Predator-launched CIA missile strikes against Islamic extremist targets along Pakistan's northwestern border.


The childish party ought not be allowed grown-up knowledge.
