Doctor Who Helped Find bin Laden is Being Tortured in Pakistani Prison, U.S. Aid Continues to Flow
Townhall ^ | Dec 11, 2012 | Leah Barkoukis

After the successful May 2011 raid that took down Osama bin Laden, President Obama said that “his [bin Laden’s] demise should be welcomed by all who believe in peace and human dignity.” Pakistan’s treatment of CIA informant Dr. Shakil Afridi tells a different story, however. The country’s spy agency (Inter-Services Intelligence) promptly arrested the doctor for helping Americans identify OBL’s compound. In addition to a fine and his entire bank account being looted, Afridi was sentenced to 33 years in prison for high treason and is now reportedly being tortured:

...

According to Afridi, ISI “regards America as its “worst enemy,” and the government's claims that it is cooperating with the US are a sham to extract billions of dollars in American aid.” Afridi even said the ISI helps fund the Haqqani network, which Sec. Clinton has designated a Foreign Terrorist Organization.

After learning the details about Pakistan’s treatment of Dr. Afridi and ISI’s feelings towards America, Sen. Rand Paul unsuccessfully pushed to end all aid to Pakistan until the doctor is freed.

...

State Department spokesperson has called the most recent report on Dr. Afridi’s condition ‘troubling’ and that they “regret both the fact that he was convicted and the severity of his sentence.”

It sounds as though Obama the Osama Killer didn’t have the good doctor’s back after all. When Barry Benghazi says that he has your back, you might want to haul ass and get as far away from him as you can.

“When Barry Benghazi says that he has your back, you might want to haul ass and get as far away from him as you can.”

Perhaps these corrections might be a tad more accurate, if less politically correct:
“When Bathhouse Barry says that he has your back, you better cover your ass, and get as far away from him as you can.”

Muslims are always prone to acting out their Inner Muslim, with their 1,400 years of devotion to sodomy, torture, ad nauseam.

The only reason he is being tortured is because Obama WANTS him to be tortured.

george76Natural he’s been tortured because the guy he lead to them was NOT OBL. According to the assassinated Pakistani PM in 2007 she said he’s been dead/killed for years, and GWB stopped pursue him, hello!!!

sadly, me two.

the poor guy could use one of these

What he really needs is a strong US president who could and would demand his release in a way that would cause the Pakis to laugh hysterically.
