"The CIA suspended its long-standing use of an air base in Pakistan as a launch site for armed drones targeting members of al-Qaida and other militant groups three months ago, according to U.S. and Pakistani officials. U.S. personnel and Predator drones remain at the facility, in the southern province of Baluchistan, with security provided by the Pakistani military, officials from both countries said."
