Osama's Wives Granted Permission to Leave Pakistan, Travel Freely

Pakistan has completed its interviews of Osama bin Laden's wives and children and declared them free to leave Pakistan and travel freely.

The Pakistani Commission also recommended that a physician who worked with the CIA to conduct a fake vaccination program designed to obtain DNA from the citizens of Abbouttabad be charged with treason.

The vaccination ruse has been widely criticized by aid agencies, which have said it could harm legitimate immunization programs in Pakistan. The vaccination team was reported to have gained access bin Laden's house in Abbottabad, but that it didn't confirm bin Laden's presence there.

The U.S. wants Pakistan to allow the doctor to live in the U.S.

    As in, "Helping catch Osama bin Laden" is against the national interest of Pakistan and is therefore treason?

    as in pretending to be a doctor performing vacinnations while really in service of a foreign power's spy agency.

    What would you call an American MD collecting DNA under a similar ruse for Pakistan's spy agency? A patriot?  I think not.

    Rejoice the killing of Osama if ya want, that's understandable, but lets not pretend the tactics used were/are anything but deplorable.


    This was actually rather clever... (none / 0) (#3)
