Pakistan Wants Drone Control

Our allies Pakistan.

CNN:

The new chief of Pakistan's spy agency will urge the United States to end drone strikes on Pakistani soil and identify targets that the country's security forces can then attack, a senior intelligence official said.

Lt. Gen. Zahirul Islam will deliver the message during a meeting with the head of the CIA on August 2, said the Pakistani intelligence official, who did not want to be named because he is not authorized to speak to the media.

"You (the U.S.) develop a target and let us hit it," Islam will tell CIA Director David Petraeus, the official said. "It would be ideal if the U.S. provides drone technology to Pakistan."

Dear Mr. Islam, We were born at night, but not last night. We all know what would happen if we did that. The targets would be forewarned by the ISI and by the time any drones arrived there would be no target. Or Pakistan would veto or demonstrate intentional incompetence in hitting said targets. I mean you couldn't even find bin-Laden in your own back yard, and yeah we all believed that was due to your incompetence.
