Pakistan secretly approves US drone attacks

PAKISTAN secretly approved of drone attacks by the United States on its territory despite declaring publicly opposing them.

The Washington Post reported top-secret documents and Pakistani diplomatic memos showed the Central Intelligence Agency had drafted documents to share information on drone attacks with Pakistan.

The apparent evidence of Pakistan's involvement came as Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif visited the White House and urged an end to the attacks, which are widely unpopular with the Pakistani public.
