Saudi Arabia Airports and Air Bases
News reports today claim the US has established a CIA drone base in Saudi
Arabia for attacks within Yemen. Previously, there have been reports of drone
bases in Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Somalia, Oman
and Yemen operating in the US Central Command area of operations.
Some reports may be accurate but more likely these reports are based on
disinformation to conceal where the bases are located.
This shows Google Maps airports and air bases in Saudi Arabia. A CIA air
base is not likely to be shown by Google which has a history of concealing
informaton requested by governments. These locations may be useful to show
where the base is not located.
Bing.com/maps, with images by Nokia, often shows sensitive sites censored
by Google. However, Google often sites that are out of date or obscured by
Bing. A Saudi base search on Bing is underway.
One airport below, at Alkwifriah on the eastern
coast of Saudi Arabia, is not designated on Google maps.
The photos are geographically arranged approximately from north to south,
with those in the south closest to Yemen.
