This only makes sense.  First manned aircraft went stealth.  Then UAVs go stealth.

As the Washington Post reports:

The CIA employed sophisticated new stealth drone aircraft to fly dozens of secret missions deep into Pakistani airspace and monitor the compound where Osama bin Laden was killed, current and former U.S. officials said.

Guess what?  I have seen the future and it’s unmanned.

The monitoring effort also involved satellites, eavesdropping equipment and CIA operatives based at a safe house in Abbottabad, the city where bin Laden was found. The agency declined to comment for this article.

Gee.  Multi-source intel?  Who would have thought?
