"In all, about 335 American personnel — C.I.A. officers and contractors and Special Operations forces — were being asked to leave the country, said a Pakistani official closely involved in the decision.
It was not clear how many C.I.A. personnel that would leave behind; the total number in Pakistan has not been disclosed. But the cuts demanded by the Pakistanis amounted to 25 to 40 percent of United States Special Operations forces in the country, the officials said. The number also included the removal of all the American contractors used by the C.I.A. in Pakistan." NY Times
(Irony Alert) What's the matter with those people in Pakistan? Don't they understand that the US decides for them what will or will not be? Sovereignty? We dealt with that idea in Iraq. Didn't we?
To quote Christopher Matthews (is that still his name?) a few years back, "Who is in charge in Iraq, Us or them?"
Well, soon they will "sober up" (sort of) and realize who is in charge. Petraeus will fix all this. pl
