Is anyone else sick of hearing the garbage about Obama having the courage to order the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden? Let’s ignore the fact that Obama opposed enhanced interrogation techniques. In fact if the military had followed the path Obama wanted, as soon as we captured a terrorist, we would have read him his rights, given him an ACLU lawyer and never heard another word.
Now the next time you here a liberal tells you how great Obama was ordering the Bin Laden hit, there is an answer.
What is it?
The answer is Shakil Afridi.
He is the Pakistani Doctor who willingly helped the CIA find Bin Laden. Now he is in a Pakistan jail, having been convicted of helping America kill Bin Laden. He received a 33 year sentence, which at his age is a life sentence.
From Fox News:
Former U.S. intelligence officers accused the Obama administration of dropping the ball on the case of the Pakistani doctor sentenced to 33 years in prison for helping find Usama bin Laden -- with one openly challenging the State Department's claim that it pressed his case "regularly" with Islamabad.
Officials are now raising a slew of concerns with how the U.S. government has handled the case.
Shakil Afridi, who reportedly is in his 50's, helped the CIA by running a vaccination program meant to try and verify bin Laden's location in Abbottabad.
With options for securing Afridi's freedom rapidly diminishing, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., urged the administration to push back hard on Pakistan in light of the sentencing -- and cut off aid.
"Secretary Clinton will have to do more than voice protests over the Afridi case. Both the Departments of State and Defense need to take punitive actions against Pakistan. Carrots are not enough when dealing with an adversary. Sticks are needed to prove we are serious," he said in a statement.
Others are accusing the administration of imperiling Afridi by discussing his role in public.
But Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, a former military intelligence officer, disputed this claim.
"From what I'm hearing, we did pretty much nothing," he said. "We did nothing diplomatically at all, didn't raise a finger. ... From what my sources tell me, we did nothing to try and help this guy."
Dr. Afridi was the real hero here, not Obama. What has Obama done? He and the regime have sold this guy out.
Unfortunately there is a message there for anyone else thinking about helping America.
The word is being spread through out the Middle East. America will not help you if you help America. This man made an incredible sacrifice for America and took a terrible risk.
He deserves praise for what he did and the American government must do everything in its power to secure his freedom. Unfortunately, we will need a new President before there are any serious efforts to secure Dr. Afridi’s freedom.
Let’s hope he lives that long.
It won't be long before this happens in the once nation of the USA.
I WILL PRAY FOR THIS DOCTOR AND I WILL PRAY THAT WE WILL SOON BY DELIVERED FROM OUR COMMUNIST LEADER IN WASHINGTON.
We are witnessing a slow motion movie of the last days of the USA.
If Obama is returned to the White House, the USA will implode, and the most noble experiment in the world will be history.
As long as there are American Patriots willing to stand and fight we will always have our country and our Constitution. The American Patriots have never lost a war!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm sorry, didn't we bailout on Vietnam? We certainly didn't win that war or "conflict" as some call it.
He said "American Patriots", Eileen. Don't confuse those who were there with the back-stabbers, back in the states, who sold us down the Mekong River.
Yes Eileen, our cowardly politicians in DC bailed on S.Vietnam and all the in-country Vietnam vets. The Generals of N. Vietnam knew they could never win the war militarily, however, they also knew that our cowardly politicians did not have the "gonads" to commit our military to fight a winning war. ( the taliban know this also) So they waited and politically won. They did not win militarily. We lost 60,000 men + the thousands who have died from agent orange and wounds since in a war that was corrupt from day one. I went there in 1965 as a young Marine Sergeant believing we were fighting the ungodly communist as we were told. Johnson and McNamarra had a different agenda..greed.
Obama has no loyalty to anyone other than hisself. Everyone else is just fodder.
The comination of several Executive Orders that have not been challenged by the Democrat controlled Senate, in essnse, create Obama's "Enabling Act" to become Dictator of the new USSA (United Socialist States of America)
Pity the CIA operatives around the world who have risked plenty to cultivate indigenous sources. Those sources will all have cold feet now...
The abandonment of Dr Afridi by the US Government is an absolute abomination. Not only does this administration not thank him, they throw him under the bus. The message that this sends is that under no circumstance should anyone help the USA as we will not stand with you. Perhaps the hidden objective is to turn the middle east against the USA.
As for Pakistan; these heathens are not our friends. Accept it and shut them off. .
But why should Obama give any credit to this Dr. Shakil Afridi?
Our Dear Leader Barack Obama did it all himself!
B. O. got Obama Nobody else. Live with it, People!
After all, we have positive photographic proof from the White House War Room!
