Conviction of Pakistani doctor threatens US ties with Pakistan

By Elise Labott and Pam Benson

The conviction of a Pakistani doctor who tried to help the CIA locate the hiding place of Osama bin Laden is further exacerbating tensions between Washington and Islamabad and could affect U.S. ability to negotiate a deal with Pakistan over re-opening NATO supply lines, senior U.S. officials told CNN.

Dr. Shakil Afridi on Wednesday was convicted of treason for having assisted the United States in trying to uncover the location of the terror leader last year under the guise of a vaccination campaign in Abbottabad, Pakistan. He was sentenced to 33 years by a tribal court in northwestern Pakistan, and sent to prison in Peshawar following the ruling.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta have both spoken of their concern for Afridi, and have called for his release.

Clinton said Thursday that the United States "does not believe there is any basis for holding Dr. Afridi."

"His help, after all, was instrumental in taking down one of the world's most notorious murderers."

"This action by Dr. Afridi helped to bring about the end of the reign of terror - designed and executed by bin Laden - (and) was not in anyway a betrayal of Pakistan. ... We will continue to press it with the government of Pakistan."

Senior U.S. officials said Afridi worked with the United States prior to the bin Laden raid, but was never asked to spy on Pakistan and was only asked to help locate al-Qaeda terrorists posing a threat to both Pakistan and the United States.

"Over the course of his several years of service, Dr. Afridi was able to provide valuable information on al Qaeda in the FATA, the group's safe-haven," a senior U.S. official with knowledge of Afridi's activities in Pakistan told CNN. "Dr. Afridi was inadvertently able to confirm something we already suspected - that bin Laden's couriers practiced extraordinary operational security. Was that a key to the raid? No. Was it important? Absolutely."

Another senior U.S. official with knowledge of counterterrorism operations against al Qaeda in Pakistan told CNN that Afridi "helped save Pakistani and American lives. His activities were not treasonous, they were heroic and patriotic."

Afridi's conviction adds to an already-damaged and fractured relationship between the United States and Pakistan. Relations between the two countries essentially froze last November following the accidental killing of Pakistani soldiers in a NATO airstrike. Pakistan in turn closed supply lines into Afghanistan that NATO used to support the war effort.

Senior administration officials pointed to Clinton's statement about the ruling, which she made unprompted by any questions from journalists, as evidence of the seriousness with which the U.S. takes the issue.

Senior State Department officials have pointed to her remarks and reinforced her message in subsequent calls with Pakistani officials, the senior administration officials said.

"We are saying exactly along the lines of what she said," one senior official said. "We tell the Pakistanis they have agreed bin Laden should not have been in their country and we could easily argue that they should have been helping us get him. This case colors the attitude of the U.S. government, but also of the U.S. Congress at budget time."

Congressional outrage was in full force Thursday as the Senate Appropriations Committee voted to cut $33 million from the military aid package to Pakistan.

The figure derived from Afridi's 33-year sentence.

The 30-0 roll call was based on an amendment to the Senate version of the State and Foreign Operations Appropriations bill. The amendment calls for the $33 million to be upheld until "the Secretary of State reports to the Committees on Appropriations that Dr. Shakil Afridi has been released from prison and cleared of all charges relating to the assistance provided to the United States in locating Osama bin Laden."

The amendment was sponsored by Sens. Lindsay Graham, R-South Carolina; Dan Coats, R-Indiana; Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont; Dianne Feinstein, D-California; and Frank Lautenberg, D-New Jersey.

"For them to do what they did signals this is a pretty big issue," the senior administration official said.

Officials said Afridi's case could tie U.S. hands to negotiate a deal with Pakistan to reopen its border with Afghanistan to military shipments of departing NATO forces, which would resolve a sticky issue in planning the withdrawal of foreign forces.

Pakistan closed the ground routes after a NATO airstrike in November killed two dozen of its soldiers. NATO insists the incident was an accident. Obama offered his condolences, but refused to apologize.

The United States and Pakistan have not come to an agreement on the price of reopening the supply lines, known as the ground lines of communication or GLOCs. The senior U.S. officials said the deal is essentially done except for agreement on a fee for trucks that cross the border. Pakistan was requesting $5,000 per truck as a condition to reopen the supply lines between the two South Asian countries but previously, the United States had been paying just a "small fraction" of the requested fee and is not expected to pay the stiff fees, officials said.

"We are talking now about the GLOCs but the Afridi issue could hurt our ability to negotiate a deal," the second senior U.S. official said. "If Congress did what it did yesterday, what else are they going to do?

    The bottom line is that the only way to have peace in Afghanistan and lessen regional tension is split India into pieces. It has become too big too govern or create any value for western countries or even for its own population. We have invested a lot of resources in India over the past two decades and given a lot of aid to prop it up. There has been no investment on this return. Instead India has squandered all the resources in building nuclear weapons while poverty iremains rampant in the country. We need to revisit our relationship with India. American taxpayers will not tolerate this anymore. We need to take care of our own populace going forward. We cannot be exporting jobs to India or giving it financial or technical handouts.

    The thesis is that smaller indepenedent states will generate tremendous economic demand for western nations, be democratically more efficient and easy to manage, Christian friendly, religion tolerant, a great source of demand for military equipment from the west, culturally homogenous and will unleash opportunities for the people that will eradicate poverty. Moreover, the currently subjugated and enslaved minorities will have a place they can call home, have their skin in the game and work harder and with a passion to keep that neighborhood clean from extremists.

    Of course, we can carve out a hindu nation along the a portion of the western coast where they can continue to practice their medieval culture and hopefully come into the folds of the modern world wihtin the next century.

    Otherwise, I am afraid, extremism will continue to fester in that region and continue to become a threat for the western nations. We have been fighting a war for the past ten years with no end. Our soldiers have shed blood to no end. Their families are suffering. Has even one Indian soldier sacrificed his life in helping the Americans, NATO and western countries in fighting this war? The answer is a resolute NO. Folks, just think about it, 1.2 million Indian Army soldiers are sitting in trenches doing what???? Sure the heck beats me. Americans are now questioning the US Congress as to what they are doing to correct this unsustainable relationship with India. The India caucus is being monitored by citizen groups. If they don't respond to the needs of the American people political contributions to them will be severely impacted.

    So the only way to peace in Afghanistan is dismantling the terrorist network and financing emanating from India, cutting it up into smaller nations along the lines of communist USSR and let smaller and more gentle and economically dynamic states emerge, stopping the genocide in Kashmir of muslim children/women, subjugation of minorities, prosecution of Christians and Muslims. Furthermore the ridiculously large and ineffective Indian army needs to be dismantled and put to use in assisting the poverty stricken masses and not sitting in trenches hiding from Talibans.

    I think we should tackle Pakistan the way we are handling Iran

    1. Stop sending aid.
    2. Stop doing business with them
    3. Squeeze their economy, and who so ever do business with them put sanctions including China.
    By doing so I think in a week time, these poor baggers will be on their knees and we can get what we want like, opening the NATO supply route, releasing the good doctor & stoppage on harbouring terrorist support to Hakkanis and Talibans

    INDIA: On a Goat and a Stick:

    The problem with India is that is built on a system of cultural and societal values based on Hinduism which is a cult. Nations built on a cult seldom survive in the long run. You can only take it so far based on symbolisms of a goat and a stick with a skinny little man aka gandhi banging boys at night and spinning wheels during daytime.

    The Americans are not happy at all with the efforts they have spent propping up and financially and militarily supporting India with no returns at all. In fact, they have gone bankrupt providing aid to India. The american officials are now fed up and have no explanation to give to US Congress. US Govt Accountability Office needs to start investigation before the media gets a whiff of this.

    The concept of Greater Pakistan has been raised again in the think tank circles. The rational behind being the imminent implosion of India and the role of Pakistan in harnessing the potential of and providing leadership to the newly emerged states. These will be interesting times for the world who look forward to the economic potential of these new nations.

This is the new regional power Pakistan calling the shots. I read on a post here that they have offered financing for Americans in case they can't afford to pay at this time. pakistanis are really big hearted as they have also opened up their borders to feed the famine stricken poverty proned Indians. Now this is what I call leadership.

The Mossad cannot convince Indian Army out of nunkers to fight talibans. They are scared man.They were shivering when Mossad Colonel visited them in trenches because of fear.

    let's do the math, Pakistan allowed Bin Laden to hide there for years right next to a military base, then when America goes in and get him , paki's throw a fit,sell our secret technology to China, then they jail the doctor who helped America get Laden calling him a spy, they denounce the drone attacks aimed at terrorist in their country and stop NATO transports of supplies to troops in Afganistan ,the majority of insurgents are coming from pakistan and it seems to be a safe haven for them, yet the Obama admin call them an ally, when they have in no way acted anything remotly close to an ally. Where's Bush when you need a President with some cajones . Pakistan is by every definition an enemy and should be treated as such. Not one more Coin in American aide and any incumbant who suggest otherwise IS commiting treason.

    I got to write this comments as I have seen less interesting responses and more fighting.

    If I were USA president or infact any country president who is affected by idiotic, ruthless and ignorant uneducated bast....
    who we call terrorists or useless creatures on earth , I would give this doctor a WAR HERO category and invite his whole family in to nation where he can live happily....

    Sentencing this guy to 33 years prison , Pakistan proved themselves again that they are supporting terrorism.... the job that ISI (Pakistani intelligence agents) were not able to do was done by this doctor, if I were to meet him i would appreciate form bottom of my heart for his heroics....

    PAKISTAN and ANY Terror supporting nations GROW UP .... You are allowing to kill people ruthlessly and your QURAN or JIHAD or SHIRAH did not say to kill mankind ... I would agree with prettygal comments in more decent way ....THINK what will happen if some one is killing your family in front of you or one of your body parts are cut off when you are alive.....

    I hope one day every FU.... Terror supporting country realizes what they have done to their country .....understand all political idiots are making money of out of this fun and dont care about anyone but if they dont realize what they are doing all this for then this killing and blame game will continue....

    REQUEST to NATO nations ..... give assurance to the doctor and his family and move him out of pakistan before some foolish tribal pakistani or some stani kills him and his family.....

    I am stunned at the number of Indian hindus on this forum with American and Pakistani names making such senseless comments. As Israeli jews we don't want anymore interactions with Indians in trying to support their defense and intelligence forces. Our relationship with Pakistan going forward is more important. We want to develop good friendship with them. They are clearly the new leaders in that region.

What they give us in return ... a 1.2 million army hiding in bunkers scared of talibans. they could not even protect themselves from a few taliban teenagers who invaded their country and kicked the living daylights out of them. they armed forces did not even know for three days what was happening.

    Everybody can say all the insulting and immature things they want behind the veil of a computer screen. My parents are from Pakistan and I have no shame admitting that their leaders are corrupt from top to bottom. If they steal from their own poor people, what do u think they are going to do to American tax dollars? They have no morals. They double deal for a living. That will not change no matter how long the United States stays in Afghanistan or continues to launch drone attacks in Waziristan. America has been occupying Afghanistan for over 10 years with full knowledge of it being landlocked and having a porous border which insurgents can utilize, with or without the ISI's help. It is an unbelievably complex problem that no blog post can post a real solution for. Ultimately, the US has to recognize that Pakistan cannot disappear from its own neighborhood, and Pakistan must understand that it is a characterless nation right now that nobody can understand.

    Why didn't the CIA help Afridi leave Pakistan before the raid? Surely they could see this coming a mile away. It's appalling that this man is going to suffer in prison for 33 years for helping the USA find Bin Laden. He should be posing on the cover of People magazine with his family in front of his new home in the USA living the good life. We should make sure the world sees that by helping the USA find terrorists, we will take good care of them, but to allow this man to go to prison like this? What incentive would anyone have to help the USA now? Furthermore, we should also look at the reasoning behind Pakistan's loyalty to Bin Laden, Bin laden condemned the drone strikes in Pakistan. The drone strikes are not doing anything to help the "war on terrorism," in fact, it creates more terrorists. Nobody likes to be bombed on a continual basis, so many dead. Surely there is a way to come to some kind of agreement. We must get Afridi out of prison and the USA should stop killing at will like we've been doing.

    The Multidimensional Poverty Index developed by Oxford University shows that India is far poorer than Africa not just in number but also in intensity.
    The new poverty measure shows that 8 states out of the 29 states in India have more poor people than 26 poorest African countries combined. The Multidimensional poverty index views poverty from several different angles instead of just GDP figures. India is crippled by so many problems. For example, India's population growth rate is increasing by the day putting pressure on the limited resources and leaving many Indians in absolute poverty. India is very poor in terms of education, in terms of economic improvement, infrastructure, heath care, etc.

    Forget the GDP, focus on these murder statistics.
    In India, millions of girls are strangled, slowly starved or simply tossed in the trash. Moreover, in India, at least 1,370 girls are aborted every day. As a comparison, some 250 Indians die every day in road accidents. Terrorists killed about six people, on an average, every day in 2009. In the last two decades of economic progress, 10 million girls have died as such in India.
    SHAME ON INDIA AND ITS BARBARIC AND MEDIEVAL CULTURE !!!

    OBAMA: He must and will apologize to Pakistan...It is but a matter of time.

    Across all religions and cultures it is a basic tenet of human decency that human lives are valued and apologies are offered to the aggrieved by those responsible for the deaths. It nothing more, the words of apology are soothing to the families of those who died. In the Salala incident, Pakistan's contention is that Afghan forces and Indian intelligence deliberately provided misleading information to US/NATO forces and used them to kill 24 Pakistani paramilitary soldiers. This is unacceptable from any civilized perspective including human rights. Supposedly, US is the face of the civilized/westernized world. I don't see it that way anymore. Maybe the rear end but certainly not the face anymore. I am just sayin.

    Never in the history of mankind has a nation been deemed so useless than India. It has absolutely no relevance to the civilized world. No contributions..no achievements..no potential. Lived in the shadows of Muslim Mughals for centuries and now living in the shadows of muslim Pakistan. Hindu India will probably end up being a slave nation to China while the rest with Pakistan.

    DEMISE OF INDIA: The aftermath of Afghnanistan invasion

    The american invasion of Afghanistan brought to the forefront the irrelevance of India as a nation. With a population of over 1.2 billion people there was no value that this nation could bring to the table. Their soldiers (ragtag) 1.2million continue hiding in the trenches scared from talibans. A few teenage talibans invaded the country and held it hostage for days on end showing how useless India is. It was embarrasing for the world to observe this humiliation of a nation that was being touted as a regional power. the talibans brought them down in a few days with some BB guns. It is all over for India. its demise is in process and should be completed with Afghanistan withdrawal.

    INDIA: Christians and Muslims being terrorized by hindus in India.

    New, More Dangerous Hindu Extremist Groups Emerge in India

    Christians concerned as rightwing factions splinter to form militant outfits.
    PUNE, India, October 29 (CDN) — After more than a decade of severe persecution, India’s Christian minority is growing increasingly concerned over the mushrooming of newer and deadlier Hindu extremist groups.

    Gone are the days when Christians had to watch out only for the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (World Hindu Council) and its youth wing, Bajrang Dal, which are closely linked with the most influential Hindu extremist umbrella organization, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). With voter support faltering for the RSS’s political wing, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), moderate and extremist sections within the Hindu nationalist movement are blaming each other, and militant splinter groups have emerged.

    Claiming to be breakaway factions of the RSS, new groups with even more extreme ideology are surfacing. The Abhinav Bharat (Pride of India), the Rashtriya Jagran Manch (National Revival Forum), the Sri Ram Sene (Army of god Rama), the Hindu Dharam Sena (Army for Hindu Religion) and the Sanatan Sanstha (Eternal Organization) have launched numerous violent attacks on Christian and Muslim minorities.

    Mumbai and Chennai are the illegal cricket gambling capitals of the world. Cash Flows from these operations are being siphoned off by the Indian government to finance terrorists globally, particularly in the region. This off the book financing is also being used, in the case of sales of illegal booze, to finance terrorism. This way the indians are able to dodge the american financial radar.The american congressional politicians have been alerted to the double game Indians are playing.

        @ Adam: I am originally from Indian Punjab and can safely say your dreams are never coming to reality. People want separate states for two reasons:
        1. when they face injustice wrt to their rights like what happened in 1971 (Bangladesh), and what is happening in Baluchistan, Sindh & even Karachi.. Mind you take care of them otherwise out of four provinces you would left with one.
        2. What happened in Indian Punjab was again supported by ISI (Pakistan) in 1980 and finished in 1984...

        J&K was a separate state at the time of independence in 1947 just like Baluchistan, Pakistan invaded it, just like they did in Baluchistan, Hari Singh has the choice either to fight it at its own or surrender it instead it came to India for help and India signed the transfer documents in 1948, and fought the war with Pakistani invasion same as Baluchistan signed the paper in 1948 with Pakistan.
        So Kashmir is India's part... check it in Wikipedia or if the page is banned in Pakistan (I assume they don't want Pakistani people to know the truth), give me your email id, I will send it to you in separate mail.

        You are not able to save what is yours; Baluchistan is on the verge of separation, Sindh is in the line next, people of Karachi are being avoided, FATA is almost gone and you are talking about Kashmir... wake up

    These numbers being thrown around in millions are peanuts. Only people with small minds deal in these figures. Pakistan has offered credit and long term financing to Americans for their transit shipments to Afghanistan and facilitating their retreat. Now for our Indian brethren to the east we have offered them subsidized food to deal with rising poverty in India. We have opened up Wagah border to help the Indian people from having to face famine.

      Not to mention that Indians are now begging Pakistan to play cricket in India. This was predicted by someone on these forums. I will research and update who it was. Of course, Pakistan want to help their Indian brethren and will help. As you will recall, a few days ago the cricket league players in India were arrested for fixing league matches. This league is a big racket for financing terrorists and exporting extremism to USA and Europe by Indians.
