Secret US assassination drone base in Saudi Arabia exposed

Secret US assassination drone base in Saudi Arabia exposed 06 Feb 2013 The existence of a previously secret US assassination drone base in Saudi Arabia has come to light amid President Barack Obama's bid to install his counterterrorism adviser and architect of his covert targeted-killing policy, John Brennan, as the next CIA director. CIA terror drones flown out of a secret American base in Saudi Arabia were used to carry out the "only strike intentionally targeting a US citizen" to kill Anwar al-Awlaki and his 16-year-old son in a 2011 attack in Yemen, The Washington Post reports on Wednesday. The Obama administration's highly controversial and secret targeted-killing program has relied on an expanding collection of assassination drone bases maintained by the CIA spy agency and the US military's Joint Special Operations Command.
