Drone strikes in Pakistan in longest pause since 2008

The covert US drone program that hunts al Qaeda and allied terrorists operating in Pakistan’s tribal areas has entered its longest pause since the strikes were ramped up in the summer of 2008.

The US has not launched a Predator or Reaper airstrike against terrorist targets in Pakistan for 33 days, according to statistics compiled by The Long War Journal. The last strike took place on Nov. 16 in the Ramzak area of North Waziristan.
