For helping the USA find Osama bin Laden, Dr. Shakil Afridi has been charged by Pakistan with treason and sentenced to 33 years in prison. I doubt he survives the first six months.
The US response? The communist-affiliated leftist apparatchik we are asked to regard as the Secretary of Defense feebly bleats that this is a “mistake.”
A “mistake”? How about a cataclysmically immoral, terrorist-supporting decision that would not be accepted by the United States under any circumstances?
Pakistan, which almost certainly knew where he was all along, is furious about bin Laden’s demise.
Meanwhile, the US government steals $billions per year of our money and gives it to the government of Pakistan.
Obama could make a call that really would be at least a little bit gutsy by doing something about this outrage. But he won’t.
