Yeh woh musalmaan hain...

CIA operating drone base in Saudi Arabia, US media reveal

The US Central Intelligence Agency has been operating a secret airbase for unmanned drones in Saudi Arabia for the past two years.

The facility was established to hunt for members of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, which is based in Yemen.

A drone flown from there was used in September 2011 to kill Anwar al-Awlaki, a US-born cleric who was alleged to be AQAP's external operations chief.

US media have known of its existence since then, but have not reported it.

Yeh Khadmain Harmain shareefain hain. These are the caretakers of the holiest sites in Islam.  I wonder what they think about a fundamental concept in Islam: Judgement.

It all depends on what you think of Al-Qaeda, and CIA's mission in Saudi Arabia.
