The United States are hopping mad with everyone from Hillary Clinton to Leon Panetta calling it "disturbing", "difficult to understand" and "unjust and unwarranted". A US Senate panel even cut $33m in aid to Pakistan in response to the jailing of the doctor.
The United States are hopping mad and the rest of the world is scratching their heads wondering why?
Honestly, the US should have known for a certainty once the doctor’s work for the CIA was known, he is in trouble. This is a doctor who ran a fake vaccination on behalf of a foreign government secret service in his own homeland to kill someone in his own country. Tell me; in what way is that not a traitorous action?
Now I’m no fan of bin Laden but it is a little rich that the country who arrested and jailed Bradley Manning and who is trying all means and ways to get Julian Assange (who isn’t even an American) for releasing information on WikiLeaks is now saying that Pakistan should not jail a doctor who help in an assassination on behalf of a foreign government.If the US really has a problem with the sentence, then they should have gotten the doctor out of Pakistan well before the strike at Osama. What do they think was going to happen?
