I came across this when I was reading Rachel Maddow's Twitter account today. She was wondering why MSM can't get an explanation from a non-anonymous government source. America fought 3 wars this year. Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

CIA Escalates Campaign in Pakistan - WSJ.com (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704029304575526270751096984.html?m od=googlenews_wsj)

Although the U.S. military flies surveillance drones in Pakistan and shares intelligence with the Pakistani government, Pakistan has prohibited U.S. military operations on its soil, arguing they would impinge on the country's sovereignty.

The CIA doesn't acknowledge the program, and the shift of Pentagon resources has been kept under wraps.
