Abu Laith al-Libi
The airstrike that killed the al-Qaida commander was carried out entirely by the U.S. agency without any approval from the Pakistani government. Officials said they often get their best results from such operations, where they act alone based on information from well-paid informants ("all it takes is bags of cash," said one official). After the successful strike against Libi, officials expect support for autonomous operations will grow in Washington, and, if there's a struggle for power after the elections it could mean Pakistan's leaders would be too worried about other matters to interfere. here
"At one point the visits were so obvious that the Icelandic press directly confronted the CIA people in Reykjavik Airport. But the CIA people did not wish to answer the questions."
