    Bin Laden death: 'CIA doctor' accused of treason

    A Pakistani commission investigating the US raid that killed Osama Bin Laden says a doctor accused of helping the CIA should be tried for high treason.

    Dr Shakil Afridi is accused of running a CIA-sponsored fake vaccine programme in Abbottabad, where Bin Laden was killed, to try to get DNA samples.

    He was arrested shortly after the 2 May US raid that killed the al-Qaeda chief.

    The commission has been interviewing intelligence officials and on Wednesday spoke to Bin Laden family members.
    Pakistan, which was deeply embarrassed by the raid, has described the covert US special forces operation as a violation of its sovereignty.

    A government commission, headed by a former Supreme Court judge, has been charged with discovering how the US military was able to carry out the raid deep within Pakistan without being detected.

    Here is a job for the CIA. They need to smuggle this Doctor and his family out of the Country before they can execute him if there is any way to do it.

    If the Pakistan government intended to help the US find OBL, as they stated, how has this doctor committed treason?

    Apparently they lied when they said they wanted to help us find OBL.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think it is time we pulled our troops out of Afghanistan and broke off all support and diplomatic relations with Pakistan. We can't break away while our troops are in Afghanistan because we have go thru Pakistan to get the Afghanistan. No other country in the region would allow use to go overland or use their airspace.

    Pakistan has to play both sides of the fence. Nothing they say can be taken on face value. They will say that they will help us and not and they will say they didn't when they did.

    We'll see what happens here.

    If Pakistan didn't have nukes, I'd be with you on that one buddy.

    Pakistan however does have an ally that doesn't really care what it does, and that's China.

    The thing is niether the US nor the Chinese can afford to let Pakistan go failed state.

    I really, truly, madly, deeply hope there's a contingency plan in place to invade Pakistan, secure all Nuclear Weapons and ship them out of the country if things go pear shaped.

    More likely they'll just bumrush money to whichever army general can bring things under control as fast as possible but I hope there's a plan beyond that.

    The collusion with terrorist in Pakistan is very worrisome. I feel it is only a matter of time until a nuclear device is handed off to alquiada and 9-11 becomes a small event in comparison. Imagine if NYC was literally wiped off the map. If I was president this would keep me up nights. The first thing I would do is secure our border with Mexico, that I believe would be the point of entry for such a device.

    One mans terrorist is another mans freedom fighter.

    Never forget that.

    You can buy a countrys president, it's generals.

    But you can't buy its people and its army.

    That doesn't make what's happening right, but to understand it requires an ability to look at things from a perspective I suspect you are not capable of.
