Believe it or not, Dr. Shakil Afridi, the man responsible for locating the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden, instead of receiving the $25-million bounty on the jihadi terrorist's head, has been convicted of treason by Pakistan and sentenced to 33 years in prison.
To understand this bizarre sentencing of a man who should've been celebrated as a hero, one has to understand the schizophrenic nature of the Pakistani state itself. Among the community of nations, Pakistan today stands out on one hand as a petty thug brandishing a dangerous weapon, and at other times as a concubine, sleeping with anyone willing to pay for her expensive tastes.
Stung by the humiliation of being caught in the act of providing a safe haven to the world's number one terrorist, the Pakistani military took its revenge by imprisoning Dr. Afridi and shutting down the supply routes to NATO troops in Afghanistan.
Shamelessly, Pakistan is also demanding a U.S. apology.
