The Pakistani doctor who helped the CIA find Osama bin Laden has been sentenced to 33 years in jail for high treason.
Shakil Afridi, the 48-year-old doctor, had been accused of running a fake hepatitis B vaccination program, collecting DNA samples reportedly used by U.S. intelligence officers to track bin Laden to Abbottabad, where Navy SEALs killed him in a raid on his compound last year. He was sentenced to 33 years in prison and a fine of 320,000 Pakistani rupees or $3,477
In January, Defense Sec. Leon Panetta “confirmed that the United States had been working with Afridi while trying to confirm the location of Bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad,”
“For [Pakistan] to take this kind of action against somebody who was helping to go after terrorism, I just think is a real mistake on their part,” Panetta said. Makes you think, Pakistan said they where on our side but deep down were they?
