at the administration's request

""Interestingly, some journalists have known about the "secret" Saudi base for some time. The Washington Post says it didn't disclose the location at the administration's request, but it "learned Tuesday night that another news organization was planning to reveal the location of the base, effectively ending an informal arrangement among several news organizations that had been aware of the location for more than a year." The Post reports that it's just one of a "growing constellation of drone bases" operated by the U.S. overseas."" (thanks Amir)
