Pakistan is preparing a proposal to swap the doctor who helped the CIA pinpoint Usama bin Laden for a notorious female neuroscientist and suspected Al Qaeda operative being held at a federal prison in Texas, FoxNews.com has learned.
The exchange would involve Dr. Shakil Afridi, the pro-America doctor whose vaccination ruse helped establish the terror kingpins presence in an Abbottabad compound prior to the Navy SEAL raid that killed him, and Dr. Aafia Siddiqui. Siddiqui is a U.S.-trained neurosurgeon who left Massachusetts after 9/11 and resurfaced in Afghanistan where she was arrested for trying to kill U.S. soldiers.

The last thing Pakistan need is someone capable of producing weapons grade biological weapons. Those violent dumbasses would likely start cranking out vats full of anthrax, high grade killer influenza, agricultural plagues, and Muslim Hell knows what all else.

No, she stays in prison until her bones are dust.
I’m cool with it so long as we implant her with a remote control self-destruct mechanism and hit the red button 30 seconds after the Good Doctor enters Indian airspace.
This would be a non issue if there had been a competent president “leading” the mission as he would like us to believe.
Why don’t we just tell them we’ll suspend aid if the good doctor isn’t sent here immediately? Why would we offer a prisoner exchange to a regime we finance?
