    CIA 'using Saudi base for drone strikes'

    The CIA conducts lethal drone attacks against targets in Yemen from a base inside Saudi Arabia, according to theNew York Times newspaper, including the attack that killed American-born Anwar al-Awlaki.
    The existence of the base has been reported before, but its exact location has been withheld by various news outlets at the request of the Obama administration.


    The base was first used in 2011, the Times reported, to launch the drone strike that killed Awlaki, a key ideologue in Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).

    Apparently we have not removed all bases from Saudi Arabia. Im sure this is gonna make all those holy warriors real happy with infidels on the soil of the "holy kingdom".

    they're general complaint about infidels polluting the holy land is hardly reasonable in any measure, so who cares? It's not like there is much room to reason with these people

    One of the main reasons how Al Qaeda and other Islamic terrorist groups gain support is through that claim, so it is pretty reasonable on the geopolitical issues.

    International relations has nothing to do with reason. I may not have any respect for the fools who get worked up over some bases near Mecca, but that doesn't change the reality of the situation. The bases in Saudi Arabia have a political cost greater than their benefit and they should be removed.

    Acting like a petulant child has no place in foreign policy.

    Funny how liberals detest religious Americans but they cozy up to Saudis, Palestinians, Muslim Brotherhood, etc.

    So you would support Saudi military bases in our country also (if they wanted them), right?
