    To be fair, Pakistan is on Pakistan's side just as the USA is on the USA's side. If a US citizen helped Pakistani forces carry out a military operation within America, I suspect US federal authorities would have questions for them.

    I'm not saying any of it is right, just that the idea that we're so upstanding and moral while they're underhanded and selfish is either nave or dishonest.

    A. we should be sending this guy letters & care-packages. He is a hero.

    B. we should consider a raid to get this guy out of prison, bring him to the USA, and give him a free house and car.

    C. we need to send a message to the world, that when you help us....we appreciate it. This guy needs our help.

    Then the US should not have any dealings (military, economic, diplomatic, etc...) with Pakistan.

    this will certainly motivate other pakistani nationals to assist our efforts to thwart terrorism [/s]

    and panetta, the head of the CIA, is the person who put this operative at risk. such a dumb ass
    Seems to me that this information would have been classified. WTF was Panetta thinking?

    We should, yes, but our government is committed to the fantasy that Pakistan is an ally in the War on Terror.

    I do not think we have ever thought that. Especially since we knew he went to Pakistan following the Tora Bora fiasco.

    Too late for that. We've been leaving our friends behind since 1974 and we're still doing it. We're going to do it in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Not at all. We need to let these countries like Pakistan know that they need to get fully behind US Policy or they WILL get left behind, PERMANENTLY. That means the next time there's a 6.5 magnitude earthquake in their country, there's not going to be any US Aid showing up to bail their asses out either.
