You would think the runway would be in a secure area given the range of the predator.

The link I provided here indicates that the Predator is now firing stinger missiles instead of the hellfire. Or the NY times screwed up. Here is some of the article:
Pilotless Predator aircraft are flying surveillance missions over the no-flight zone in southern Iraq. The Air Force has also quietly test-fired Stinger missiles from some of the Predators. The missiles would allow a slow-moving drone to defend itself against Iraqi fighter jets that cross into restricted airspace and threaten it.
