As above..while it's Obama with a sore arm from patting himself on the back taking credit,
and our brave Navy SEALS we're the ones dropping from a helicopter in
the dark of night to make the hit,, Afridi is the one most responsible
for the killing of America's most wanted criminal in Osama Bin Laden.
Being a doctor, Afridi collected DNA samples in a fake Hepatitis B vaccination program aimed at collecting DNA from Bin Laden's family to prove his whereabouts.
In January, Defense Sec. Leon Panetta "confirmed that the United States had been working with Afridi while trying to confirm the location of Bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad".
Of course we all know how things ended with the scam,,it worked to perfection and we killed that bastard Bin Laden.
The raid on Pakistani soil was an embarrassment, and the fact Osama
had been living in a military area of Pakistan without hassle for years
was an even bigger embarrassment.
Pakistan receives billions in aid from the U.S every year but somehow
does whatever it can to make things harder for us in the region rather
than being the supposed ally they're essentially paid to be.
Drone strikes by the U.S on terrorist hideouts in the ungoverned
northwestern part of the country are always condemned by authorities and
they often retaliate by closing NATO supply routes critical to our
troops fighting in Afghanistan.
While i can understand outrage by the citizens in those tribal areas
who have lost family members courtesy of errors by the drone strikes,
hearing politicians who are great at holding their hands out for more
money from us cry-pout-piss-n-poop while not actually fighting these
terrorists in safe havens on their turf is a whole different story.
But back to the doctor.
The 48 year old Afridi was immediately arrested after it was known he had involvement in the killing of Bin Laden.
His crime according to them was treason. He was sentenced to 33 years
in prison and a fine of 320,000 Pakistani rupees or $3,477, a
government official said. He will serve his jail term in Peshawar in northwest Pakistan.
