Shakil Afridi Should Be In Prison!

For all of you ignorant people, let me first caviot this statement by saying, Osama Bin Ladin was an evil man. The world is a better place now that he is dead. Thank you President Obama for making the decision to kill him once found. Now that you can understand an believe that I am against terrorism in all forms, let me show you why Shakil Afridi is in prison and why this is a case where the Pakistan Justice System did apply logical punishment for a crime.

Dr. Shakil Afridi was accused and convicted of espionage against his country. In other words he was accused of being a spy.

Do you know how many people we have locked up in American prisons and CIA secret prisons for spying? The numbers are in the thousands.

Do you know what America does to spy’s? It sentences them to death. Here is a short list of Russians killed in the USA for spying.

Oleg Penkovsky
Dmitri Polyakov
Pyotr Semyonovich Popov
Adolf Tolkachev
Gennady Varenik

Pakistan on the other hand, does not have the death penalty for spying.

Now look at the details of the crimes committed by Shakil Afridi….crimes that NO ONE disputes.

1) Set up fraudulent medical center as a CIA employee.
2) Collected DNA samples without authority and without the patients knowledge.
3) Shared DNA information with a foreign power.


How do the ignorant US Lawmakers respond?

US senators scandalized

At first you might think that US Senators really care about Shakil Afridi…..think again. If you read carefully in the article…

The overall foreign aid budget for next year had slashed more than half of the proposed assistance and threatened further reductions if Islamabad failed to open overland supply routes to U.S.-led NATO forces in Afghanistan.

That’s right….the real reason for the $33 million dollar cut in aid to Pakistan is based on Nato supply routs being reopened and has nothing to do with Shakil Afridi. This “outrage” by our lawmakers is due to pressure being put on them by Haliburton, the company who is now paying a few more dollars per ton to get goods into Afghanistan. If Pakistan re-opens the border, Haliburton will save millions each month.

Welcome to the American Corporatocracy. Don’t believe that our lawmakers are outraged by anything. They are cold hearted capitalists with the single desire to kill democracy in the United States so they have unlimited power.

NOTE: Right now we are basing all of our foreign policy on the whims of PAC’s of major corporations. Right now we are invading foreign airspace, ground, and waters without any respect to their sovereignty. None of these actions are coming with the American people’s approval.

Are you awake yet?

    I can’t claim to be an expert (although I did spend a couple of years in Army Intelligence 1969-71. That, and anybody who has ever perused a Clancy novel know that the two inviolate things in intelligence disclosure are a) sources, and b) methods. Whomever saw fit to violate those basic principles is a rank amateur and has done untold damage to the US and future intelligence-gathering efforts.

    Shame! Shame! Shame!
