    WASHINGTON: US defense secretary Leon Panetta is acknowledging publicly for the first time that a Pakistani doctor provided key information to the US in advance of the successful Navy SEAL assault on Osama bin Laden's compound last May.

    Panetta told CBS's "60 Minutes," in a profile to be broadcast on Sunday, that Shakil Afridi helped provide intelligence for the raid on bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

    Afridi ran a vaccination program for the CIA to collect DNA and verify bin Laden's presence in the compound. He has since been charged by Pakistan with treason. Panetta said he is "very concerned" for the doctor.

    Panetta also told "60 Minutes" that he remains convinced that someone in the Pakistani government "must have had some sense" that a person of interest was in the compound. He added that he has no proof that Pakistan knew it was bin Laden.

    The Pakistani government had hoped to resolve the Afridi matter quietly, once media attention died down, perhaps releasing him to US custody, according to two Pakistani officials. They requested anonymity because the investigation into charges the doctor behaved treasonously was ongoing.

    Finally the self appeasing WOT lobby of Pakistanis got something to rejoice.

    "If" Aafia has been raped, then the swap is "Not possible", because she is "good as dead". So Aafia's life has some meaning to Farhan only if she has not been raped. Strange are the ways of the Pakistanis!

    When the commies wrote garbage like this, it was called agitprop.

    Agitprop - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And this is your source, a known conspiracy theorist::

    For what it is worth, I was willing at one time to give @farhan9909 the benefit of the doubt in his posts. Now, especially after his giving rense.com as a source, I will no longer trust anything he posts.

    QUOTE=Dovah;768484]Anybody who uses Jeff Rense/Alex Jones as his source in serious discussion should be ignored.[/QUOTE]

    I have learned my lesson re:farhan9909.

    FWIW, Rense has been cited a total of five (5) time in the history of DFI.:hmm:[
