Excellent timing for the CIA?
Though the newspaper acknowledges that “Pakistan’s tacit approval of the [US] drone program has been one of the more poorly kept national security secrets” in the world, the Washington Post on Wednesday is reporting on leaked internal CIA documents it says shows the deep level of cooperation in recent years as both countries have played a game of high-level denialism about the role of armed, unpiloted aircraft in the sensitive tribal regions along the Afghan-Pakistan border.

According to the Post:
The revelations come as Pakistan’s Prime Minister Narwaz Sharif is in Washington and amid new public statements by he and other high-level officials voicing public condemnation of the continue drone attacks in their country.
