To save the drone campaign against al Qaeda in Pakistan, CIA director David Petraeus had in January offered major concessions to Pakistan's then spy chief Lt Gen Ahmed Shuja Pasha. The offer had included advance notice on the strikes. But the offers were rejected. The CIA chief also offered to apply new limits on the types of targets hit, said a senior US intelligence official.
