Air Force Joins CIA as Drone War Over Pakistan Grows

Over the past year and a half, the U.S. has stepped up drone strikes against militants in Pakistan — killing as many as a thousand people. Press accounts have largely credited the Central Intelligence Agency with running these missions. But the U.S. Air Force also plays an important role in the drone missions over Pakistan. The military supplies the aircraft. It monitors the flights in and out of Pakistan. And, on occasion, Air Force pilots remotely fly their own drone missions over Pakistan.
