You know..I hate to say it..but there is a big difference between Al Qaeda and the U.S. Government in making good for rewards offered. I've never
heard of Al Qaeda letting one of their agents or informants go down for life in prison directly resulting from giving them the information they so
badly needed and wanted.
Our side did precisely that with the guy who burned the Bin Laden house for the following raid,.
The Pakistani doctor who aided American intelligence in its mission to kill Osama bin Laden has been convicted of high treason in his home country
and sentenced to 33 years in prison plus a fine, Pakistani officials said today.
Shakil Afridi ran a vaccination program on behalf of the CIA near the al Qaeda leader's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in an attempt to collect DNA
from bin Laden's relatives and verify that America's most wanted terrorist was indeed in the compound. On May 2, 2011, a team of U.S. Navy SEALs
raided the compound and killed bin Laden.
Afridi's role, first reported by the New York Times in July 2011, was publicly confirmed by U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta in January when he

I guess taking care of those who take care of us is another of those old fashioned notions that need to change with the times or something. I don't
know how to feel when it's accurate to say Terrorists have more credibility on ANYTHING than we do. I can't say how I ought to feel...but I can't
argue the truth either. Burning allies and burning those who trust their lives to us, to HELP us has consequences alright. I just wish our pea brained
leaders would think more than 4 years at a time and realize that. They USED to think a bit longer term than this.
* The article says 33 years...but look at pics of the Doc. He's no spring chicken. That was a Death Sentence by old age in a cell.
