Now wait a second.
Yes, they just passed a bill not to remove troops from Afghanistan, but nowhere is it written that they support expansion. Rejecting a proposal in no way implies that anyone supports expansion. I'd work on that headline.

ISLAMABAD - The approval given to the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) by the administration of President Barack Obama to expand drone strikes in Pakistan's tribal regions is on face value a declaration of war by the US inside Pakistan. The move comes at a time when Pakistan is trying to win some breathing space to delay an all-out operation in North Waziristan, home to powerful militant groups and an al-Qaeda headquarters.
