Even better is this:

The Pakistani government arrested Afridi and he remains in prison, sentenced to more than three decades behind bars. Despite the doctor's key role in the mission's success, the United States has done little to secure his release.

'[T]he fact is that he was arrested 3 weeks after the raid during which time the CIA could have ferreted him out of the country.'


Regardless of how you feel about the raid itself, the fact that we essentially abandoned Afridi is going to give others who might be willing to work with the US pause.

Certainly, if I were a Pakistani, and even if I believed in getting rid of Al Qaeda, I wouldn't work with the US.  Not after seeing that.

As if this were the only time a fake Texan douchebag put on a cowboy hat to avoid war crimes prosecution.

Maybe he didn't want to leave.

Fair said it's not clear that Afridi would voluntarily choose to leave Pakistan, given reports that he turned down an offer from U.S. officials to relocate him and his family after the bin Laden raid.
