US to Sell Drones to Pakistan
The New York Times reports that Secretary of Defense Robert Gates is offering Pakistan its own Shadow drones as an incentive to encourage cooperation in the fight against the Taliban. Of course the Pakistan government might elect to use these drones to target political enemies other than those with whom the U.S. is at war. The story titled, U.S. Offers Pakistan Drones to Urge Cooperation, was published on January 21st.
