Pakistan's government has tolerated the airstrikes, which have killed hundreds of suspected insurgents since early 2009, but that support has always been fragile and could quickly evaporate, U.S. and Pakistani officials said.

The CIA declines to publicly discuss its clandestine operations in Pakistan, and a spokesman would not comment on the kinds of weapons the agency is using.

Fact of the Matter remains, that a Foreign nation is bombing the shit out of Pakistans soverign land, killing innocent Beggar Pakis, while Pakistan watches in fear, and cant even speak a word.
