Mr. Speaker, the day Osama bin Laden met his maker was a great day for America.
But like most good things, this did not come easy.
Pakistani Dr. Shikal Afridi worked with our CIA under the guise of running a hepatitis B vaccination program.
His hope was to get DNA evidence to confirm that bin Laden was hiding in Abbottabad before our Navy Seals went in for the kill.
He never got those samples, but according to Secretary Panetta, he was ``very helpful'' in the operation to find Osama bin Laden.
But Dr. Afridi is now sitting in a jail cell in Pakistan, being held for treason for helping the U.S.
That's right. Pakistan is now holding in custody a doctor that helped us get the number 1 terrorist in the world.
The man should be treated like a hero. Instead he's locked up and called a traitor. This ought not to be.
Pakistan is no friend of ours. The sooner we realize that the better off we'll be.
Until Pakistan becomes an ally--Americans should give no money to Pakistan.
And that's just the way it is.
