Washington, Feb.15 (ANI): The Obama administration has described Senator Dianne Feinsteins comments on drones operating in Pakistan were only based on a news report rather than an intelligence report.
Philip J. LaVelle, spokesperson of Feinstein said her comment was solely based on news reports that drones were operated from bases near Islamabad.
“We strongly object to Senator Feinstein’’s remarks being characterized as anything other than a reference to an article that appeared last March in a US newspaper, The News quoted LaVelle, as saying.
On Friday, Chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Dianne Feinstein, had said that CIAs unmanned aircrafts are being operated from an airbase inside Pakistan.
As I understand it, these are flown out of a Pakistani base, she said. (ANI)
