But don’t be concerned: the money will still flow to our Pakistani “ally.”
“Hero doctor who helped nail Bin Laden tortured in Pakistani prison, says family,” from FoxNews.com, December 11 (thanks to Twostellas):
Dr. Shakeel Afridi, the jailed CIA informant who helped hunt down Usama Bin Laden, has recently been tortured in prison, the doctor’s family members told Fox News.
“I was told by a prison source that Shakeel and two guards were subjected to torture by jail administration sometime in November,” Jamil Afridi, the brother of the jailed doctor, told Fox News in a recent interview. Jamil Afridi said he had been told about the torture on Nov. 21, when he tried to visit his brother in jail but was turned away, and in a follow-up court hearing on Nov. 22.
“His privileges have been revoked and he’s been shifted to another cell,” Jamil said. “They are strict with him, and treating him inhumanely.”
Jamil Afridi, who has not been allowed to visit his brother, was reluctant to describe the details of how his brother may have been tortured, saying he feared his communications are being monitored by Pakistani authorities. But a cousin and member of Dr. Afridi’s legal counsel backed Jamil’s claims.
“I received phone calls from people who have good connections with prison officials in Peshawar, and they told me Afridi has been physically tortured,” according to the cousin.
Pakistani officials did not return calls seeking comment for this report….
