    If the Pakistanis are our friends, and claim to be fighting the same terrorists we are, then why did they just sentence the doctor who helped find Bin Laden to 33 years?! :lol:

    A senior U.S. official with knowledge of counter-terrorism operations against Al Qaeda in Pakistan said the doctor was never asked to spy on Pakistan.

    Send in the SEALs......

    SNIP:


    "He was asked only to help locate Al Qaeda terrorists, who threaten Pakistan and the U.S.," the official told Fox News. "He helped save Pakistani and American lives. His activities were not treasonous, they were heroic and patriotic."

    Boggles the mind.

    As I stated in another thread...same topic?

    The Doctor's lawyer should have claimed that Obama said HE got bin-Laden...go after him.

    Good question. They were never our "friends", they are "friends" when it suits them ($$$$$$$$$$$$$$), we should be able to tell them to release that guy

    The question is, how can we expect the locals to turn in terrorists in the future, when this is the punishment the Pakistanis (the same people we supposedly pay to fight terrorists) accord such heroic actions?

    Thats a good point Roudy, it really puts people off locating terrorists in the future. Shocking that the doctor is in prison. The Pakistanis really aren't friends - if they were, they might have realised Bin Laden was living around the corner from their military academy. I can understand them being pissed off over ISAF killing their soldiers but I wouldn't trust them.

    Because he made the Pakistani military look like idiots.
    Because the Pakistani president is hanging onto power by the skin of his teeth.
    Because the Pakistani government is worried about civil unrest.

    It's internal politics, man...

    They're just trying to see what they can get away with without their welfare checks being cut off.
