Washington Post reports unilateral CIA strike within Pakistan

The January 29 missile strike in Pakistan in which senior Al Qaeda commander Abu Laith al-Libi was killed was conducted by the US Central Intelligence Agency with an unusual degree of autonomy, according to the Washington Post.

In a report headlined “CIA Makes Unilateral Strike Inside Pakistan”, published under the bylines of Joby Warrick and Robin Wright, the paper said: “Having requested the Pakistani government’s official permission for such strikes on previous occasions, only to be put off or turned down, this time the U.S. spy agency did not seek approval.”

The report can be accessed at the countercurrents.org site
