Obama OK with bombing sovereign Pakistan

Drone attacks to continue in Pakistan, CIA chief says - The Boston Globe.

WASHINGTON - CIA Director Leon Panetta said yesterday that US aerial attacks against Al Qaeda and other extremist strongholds inside Pakistan would continue, despite concerns about a popular Pakistani backlash.

“Nothing has changed our efforts to go after terrorists, and nothing will change those efforts,” Panetta said in response to questions about CIA missile attacks, launched from unmanned Predator aircraft. Although he refused to discuss details of the attacks - and the CIA will not confirm publicly that it is behind the strikes - Panetta said that the efforts begun under President George W. Bush to destabilize Al Qaeda and destroy its leadership “have been successful.”

“I don’t think we can stop just at the effort to try to disrupt them. I think it has to be a continuing effort, because they aren’t going to stop,” Panetta said. The CIA has launched about three dozen Predator strikes in Pakistan since late last summer, two of them during the Obama administration.
