Paki doctor who tipped off U.S. on bin Laden gets 33 years plus hard labor

He’ll never get out alive.

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (Reuters) – A Pakistani doctor accused of helping the CIA find Osama bin Laden has been jailed for 33 years for treason, officials said, a move likely to deepen strains in ties between Washington and Islamabad.

“Deepen strains?”  Why are we supporting the Paki thugs with billions of dollars annually?

More from the U.S.’s valuable and trusted ally. How much more of this must go on before anyone in Washington notices that Pakistan is actually not on our side?

“Pakistani who helped US sentenced to prison,” by Riaz Khan for the Associated Press, May 23 (thanks to JW):

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — A Pakistani doctor who helped the U.S. track down Osama bin Laden was convicted of high treason Wednesday and sentenced to 33 years in prison, officials said, a verdict that is likely to further strain the country’s relationship with Washington.Shakil Afridi ran a vaccination program for the CIA to collect DNA and verify bin Laden’s presence at the compound in the town of Abbottabad where U.S. commandos killed the al-Qaida chief last May. The operation outraged Pakistani officials because they were not told about it beforehand…..

  1. And Shrillary manifesting her deep fake disappointment here…”We regret both the fact that he was convicted and the severity of his sentence,” she told a joint press conference with New Zealand Foreign Minister Murray McCully. Makes you wonder how much she will hand out in aid to Pakistan for this. The man should be protected by us for doing a fantastic job. Hillary’s cheap talk is jailing him all over again.

    From the Times of India this here…”The Senate Appropriations Committee on Thursday voted to cut aid to Pakistan by a symbolic $33 million — $1 million for each year of jail time handed to Afridi.
    The measure, an amendment to the $52 billion US foreign aid budget, passed in a 30-0 vote in a sign of growing outrage here over Afridi’s conviction.” So big hairy deal…a million a year..chump change for this man’s life..surely we can demand the Pakis get zero, zilch, nada.

    When you are looking at giving $52 billion to these cut throat retards who will only turn around and kick us, what is $33 million..hardly any punishment. Guess these people don’t know basic math.

  2. This is a total fail for the Obama administration.
    Why wasn’t that doctor and his family brought to the U.S. BEFORE the White House released the information that a Pakistani doctor had been treating OBL had tipped us off.
    Now that the doctor is in prison, the Obama administration takes credit for killing OBL while the doctor is doing hard labor. It should be the other way ’round.
